Lynn Miles – Sunset Blvd. lyrics
There's lithium in the sunset
There's rats in the trees
And the temperature is always
Seventy-six degrees
When the mighty fall here
They fall real hard
And the Marlboro Man is watching them
On Sunset Boulevard

I cannot get a breath
I cannot get a break
I can taste the desperation
'Cause the deal is at stake
For every nip and tuck
There is a vicious little scar
And the Marlboro Man is peering down
On Sunset Boulevard

Be (Em)careful how you talk to her
She might (C9)be someone you need
And it's (B7)such an easy leap
From sin(Em)cerity to greed
Now everybody's waiting
Just to (C9)see the next card
And the (B7)Marlboro Man is smokin'
Down on Sunset (Em)Boulevard

There's a body on the beach
And it (G)doesn't make the news
It's (C)sweeps month here
And no(B7)body wants to lose
He (C)didn't have connections
Didn't (G)even own a car
So (C)it ain't worth reporting
'Cause he's (B7)not a superstar, yeah (Em)yeah (C9)(B7)

You (Em)cannot be too rich
You (C9)cannot be too thin
Don't bother (B7)entering the fray
Unless you're (Em)certain you can win
Take a look around you, baby
Every (C9)blade of grass is charred
And the (B7)Marlboro Man is laughing
On Sunset (Em)Boulevard (C9)(B7)

(Em)Grooming is everything
And your (C9)car is your purse
Don't (B7)give the right of way
Even (Em)if it's a hearse
Forget about that loser
'Cause (C9)he ain't going far
Anyway, the (B7)Marlboro Man is waiting for you
Down on Sunset (Em)Boulevard

There's a (C)body on the beach
And it (G)doesn't make the news
It's (C)sweeps month here
And no(B7)body wants to lose
He (C)didn't have connections
Didn't (G)even own a car
So (C)it ain't worth reporting
'Cause he's (B7)not a superstar, yeah (Em)yeah (C9)(B7)

The horses are (Em)chompin' at their bits
The (C9)dam is gonna burst
The (B7)ground is gonna rumble
And the (Em)sun is a curse
So don't look too excited
But never (B7)let down your guard
'Cause the Marlboro Man is watching you
Down on Sunset (Em)Boulevard (C9)(B7)
