City Lights:Ivory Joe Hunter.
#92 ( just under the wire) on ACE Records in 1959.

INTRO: G# C# D# G#

#1.
G#                                 C#
The bright array of city lights as far 

as I can see..
    D#7
The Great White Way shines through the 
           G#
night, for lonely guys like me.

#2.
G#
The cabarets and honky tonks, their 
C#                       D#
flashing signs invite..a broken heart to 
                    D#7          G#    C# G#
lose itself, in the glow of city lights.

CHORUS:
D#                                     G#
Lights that say, forget her name, in a glass 

of sherry wine.
D#                                 G#
Lights that offer other girls, are empty 

hearts like mine.

#3.
G#                                C#
They paint a pretty picture, of a world that's 

gay and bright.
         D#
But it's just a mask for loneliness..behind 
           G#     C# G#
those city lights.


(INTERLUDE:) D# G# C# G#

CHORUS:
    D#
The lights that say, forget her love, in a 
G#
different atmosphere.
    D#                                  G#
The lights that lure are nothing, but a masquerade 

for tears.

#4.
G#                                  C#
They paint a pretty picture, but my arms can't 

hold them tight.
      D#
And I just can't say, I love you, to a street 
        G#
of city lights.

OUTRO:
C#   G#
City lights..


A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
