Graham Parker – Girl On The Pier Graham Parker lyrics

Intro: G D Em7 C
G D Em7 C

G D Em7 C
As the twilight was returning and the sun began to fall
G D Em7 C
I walked down to the beach front and watched the whitecaps roll
G D Em C
A flare exploded over the ocean. An orange tear
G D Em C G
Then I saw at the corner of my eye the girl at the end of the pier

Intro repeat

G D Em7 C
She stood and stared at the brightness, glowing and complete
G D Em7 C
In her crinoline and lacing with the wood beneath her feet
G D Em C
She walked in splinters shedding the salt of a single tear
G D Em7
Who will fill up the vacuum inside her,
C G D Em7 C
The girl at the end of the pier

Bridge

Em C Em C
The toffee apples strewn on the pavement. The candy floss sticks to the tar
Em C
The organ grinder's monkey's been freed from enslavement
Em D
He ran beneath the wheels of a family car

Intro repeat / Bridge repeat

G D Em7 C
Now the funfair is shut down and the coconut shy is gone
G D Em7 C
A carousel spins on regardless and the big wheel creaks and groans
G D Em C
No-one saw her run to the railing and disappear
G D Em C G D
One more drop in an unfeeling ocean, the girl at the end of the pier
G D Em7 C G
One more drop in an unfeeling ocean, the girl at the end of the pier
D Em7 C G D Em7 C G
Girl at the end of the pier girl at the end of the pier
