#1.
Em 
Black day in  
D 
July..
Em 
Motor City  
D 
madness has  
G 
touched the country
Em 
side.And 
 
 
C 
through the smoke and  
Em 
cinders, you can  
C 
hear itfar and  
Em 
wide.The 
 
 
C 
doors are quickly  
Em 
bolted and the  
C 
childrenlocked 
 
 
Em 
inside…
D 
Black day in  
Em 
July..
 
#2.
Em 
Black day in  
D 
July.And the  
Em 
soul of Motor  
D 
City is  
G 
bared across the  
Em 
land.As the  
C 
book of law and  
Em 
order is  
C 
taken in the  
Em 
handsof the  
C 
sons of the  
Em 
fathers who were  
C 
carried to this  
Em 
land.
D 
Black day in  
Em 
July..
 
#3.
Em 
Black day in  
D 
July.In the  
Em 
streets of Motor  
D 
City is a  
G 
deadly, silent  
Em 
sound.And the  
C 
body of a  
Em 
dead youth lies  
C 
stretched upon the  
Em 
ground,up
C 
on the filthy  
Em 
pavement, no  
C 
reason can be  
Em 
found..
D 
Black day in  
Em 
July..
 
#4.
Em 
Black day in  
D 
July.
Em 
Motor City  
D 
madness has  
G 
touched the country
Em 
side.And the  
C 
people rise in  
Em 
anger, and the  
C 
streets begin to  
Em 
fill.And there’s  
C 
gunfire from the  
Em 
rooftops and the  
C 
blood beginsto  
Em 
spill..
D 
Black day in  
Em 
July.
 
CHORUS:
Em 
In the mansion of the  
C 
Governor, there’s  
Em 
nothing that is
C 
known for sure.The  
Em 
telephone is  
C 
ringing and the  
Em 
pendulum is  
C 
swinging.And they  
Em 
wonder how it  
C 
happened and they  
Em 
really know the  
C 
reason.And it  
Em 
wasn’t just the  
C 
temperature and it  
Em 
wasn’t just the  
C 
season..
D 
Black day in  
Em 
July..
 
#5.
Em 
Black day in  
D 
July.
Em 
Motor City’s  
D 
burning and the  
G 
flames are running  
Em 
wild.They 
 
 
C 
reflect upon the  
Em 
waters of the  
C 
river and the  
Em 
lake,and 
 
 
C 
everyone is  
Em 
listening and  
C 
everyone’s 
 
 
Em 
awake..
D 
Black day in  
Em 
July..
 
#6.
Em 
Black day in  
D 
July.The 
 
 
Em 
printing press is  
D 
turning and the  
G 
news is quickly  
Em 
flashed.And you  
C 
read your morning  
Em 
paper, and you  
C 
sip your cup of  
Em 
tea.And you  
C 
wonder just in  
Em 
passing, is it  
C 
him or is it  
Em 
me?
D 
Black day in  
Em 
July.
 
CHORUS:#2.
Em 
In the office of the  
C 
President, the  
Em 
deed is done,the  
C 
troops are sent.There’s  
Em 
really not much  
C 
choice, you see, it  
Em 
looks to uslike  
C 
anarchy.And 
 
 
Em 
then the tanks go  
C 
rolling in, to  
Em 
patch things upas  
C 
best they can.There  
Em 
is no time to  
C 
hesitate, the  
Em 
speech is made, the  
C 
dues
 
can wait..
D 
Black day in  
Em 
July..
 
#7.
Em 
Black day in  
D 
July.The 
 
 
Em 
streets of Motor  
D 
City now are  
G 
quiet and  
Em 
serene.But the  
C 
shapes of gutted  
Em 
buildings strike  
C 
terror tothe  
Em 
heart.And you  
C 
say how did it  
Em 
happen, and you  
C 
say how did it  
Em 
start?Why 
 
 
C 
can’t we all be  
Em 
brothers, why  
C 
can’t we live in  
Em 
peace?But the  
C 
hands of the  
Em 
have-nots keep  
C 
falling out of  
Em 
reach..
D 
Black day in  
Em 
July..
 
#8.
Em 
Black day in  
D 
July.
Em 
Motor City  
D 
madness has  
G 
touched the country
Em 
side.And 
 
 
C 
through the smoke and  
Em 
cinders, you can  
C 
hear itfar and  
Em 
wide.The 
 
 
C 
doors are quickly  
Em 
bolted and the  
C 
childrenlocked 
 
 
Em 
inside…
D 
Black day in  
Em 
July..

Em 
July..
Em 
Black day in  
D
