[Verse]
E5
 Early morning Manhattan
E5
 Ocean winds blow on the land
G#m
 The Movie-Palace is now undone
    A5
The all-night watchmen have had their fun
G#m
Sleeping cheaply on the midnight show
         A5
It's the same old ending-time to go
   | E | Edim |
Get out!
   Eb
It seems they cannot leave their dream
        Ebm7
There's something moving in the sidewalk steam
        Bb        Bsus4   |  E5  |  %  | 
And the lamb lies down on Broadway


[Verse]
E5
 Nightime's flyers feel their pains
E5
 Drugstore takes down the chains
G#m
Metal motion comes in bursts
        A5
But the gas station can quench that thirst
G#m
 Suspension cracked on unmade road
    A5
The trucker's eyes read 'Overload'
E                Edim
  And out on the subway
Eb 
Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid
Ebm7
Exits into daylight, spraygun hid
        Bb        Bsus4   Emaj7
And the lamb lies down on Broadway


[Middle 8]
Emaj7   Amaj7
    The lamb seems right out of place
    Emaj7                         Amaj7
The Broadway street scene finds a focus in its face
F#m6
 Somehow it's lying there
         C#
Brings a stillness to the air
       C#m D/C#   C#m D/C#
Though man - made light
   C#m      D/C# C#m   D/C#
At night is very bright
        Dmaj D6        Dmaj7  D6
There's no   whitewash victim
       Amaj7                    |  E  |  Edim  |
As the neons dim, to the coat of white
Eb 
Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid
Ebm7
Wipes his gun-he's forgotten what he did
        Bb        Bsus4   | E5 | % |
And the lamb lies down on Broadway


[Verse]
E5
Suzanne tired her work all done
      E5
Thinks money-honey-be on-neon
G#m
Cabman's velvet glove sounds the horn
        A
And the sawdust king spits out his scorn
G#m
Wonder women draw your blind!
A
Don't look at me! I'm not your kind
    |  E  |  Edim  |
I'm Rael!
Eb
Something inside me has just begun
Ebm7
Lord knows what I have done
        Bb        Bsus4   | E5 | % |
And the lamb lies down on Broadway

   E5
(On Broadway)

    E5                                         E5
      They say the lights are always bright on Broadway
(On Broadway)                              (On Broadway)
   E5                                       E5
       They say there's always magic in the air
(On Broadway)                           (On Broadway)

    E5                                         E5
      They say the lights are always bright on Broadway
(On Broadway)                              (On Broadway)
    E5                                      E5
       They say there's always magic in the air
(On Broadway)                           (On Broadway)
