Watch The Moon Come Down lyrics

Pre>watch the moon come down [top] [back to index]

G c
In this dirty town theres 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
Im going to watch the moon come down
G d em d c
Watch the moon come down
G d em d c
Im 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
Everyones been blown out everyones been thrown out
C
I said baby baby baby baby baby

Repeat chorus

G c
If I stay out all night test the midnight trains headlights
G c
Follow the tracks beyond sight to the bend
G c
Now whove 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 Im going to watch the moon come down
G d em d c
Yeah Im going to watch the moon come down like a midnight train uh huh
G c
Uh uh Im going to watch the moon come down watch it come down
G c
Yes Im going to watch the moon come down, like a midnight train (fade)
