Graham Parker – Watch The Moon Come Down lyrics

Watch the moon come down [Top] [Back to Index]

G C
In this dirty town there's nothing going for me
G C
No shows going down that I would want to see
G Em C
Nothing but the midnight tra----in
G C
In this shady street on a top floor flat
G C
Women take their sheets down to the laundromat
G Em C
And as the night falls on this to-----wn

Chorus
G D Em D C
I'm going to watch the moon come down
G D Em D C
Watch the moon come down
G D Em D C
I'm gonna Watch the moon come down
G D Em D
Watch it come down

G C
As the workmen walk home, reflected in the car chrome
G C
Splashing through the gutters and the sand
G C
The birds move in the rafters Hearing echoes of the laughter
G C
From children in a playground close at hand

D Bm
And hands inside my pockets, Staring at the light sockets
C D
Everyone's been blown out Everyone's been thrown out
C
I said baby baby baby baby baby

Repeat chorus

G C
If I stay out all night Test the midnight train's headlights
G C
Follow the tracks beyond sight to the bend
G C
Now who've I got to let down, Tell me somebody with their head down
G C D Bm
Bargin' into solid ground in the end In the end, yeah in the end
C D
Waitin for the end, arrive to the end, hey hey (guitar solo)

C
I said baby baby baby baby baby
G D Em D C
Watch the moon come down (three times)
G D Em D C
Yes I'm going to watch the moon come down
G D Em D C
Yeah I'm going to watch the moon come down Like a midnight train uh huh
G C
Uh uh I'm going to watch the moon come down watch it come down
G C
Yes I'm going to watch the moon come down, like a midnight train (fade)
