   G                        C
1.The motel lights were blinkin'
2.We used to tell each other lies
3.The only song I ever knew

         D                    G
1.On my chartreuse four-door Lincoln
2.With our orange plastic button eyes
3.Was Moonlight Bay on the Avenue

                              C
1.On the dock the fish were stinkin'
2.In a former life on a motel chair
3.These are tales from the Devil's Chin

            D             G
1.I simply didn't have a care.
2.I was Charlie Parker's Teddy Bear
3.Charlie I could've been a contender

                                    C
1.And the old men sit 'round the cracker barrels
2.Yeah, me and Bird we'd stay up late
3.And the old men sit 'round the cracker barrels

         D                    G
1.The children hum their Christmas Carols
2.I used to watch him contemplate
3.The children hum their Christmas Carols

                              C
1.The train tracks all run parallel
2.While his horn would sit by the window and wait
3.The train tracks all run parallel

             D             G
1.But they'll all meet up one day
2.Till it was time for him to blow it
3.But they'll all meet up one day


CHORUS:

        G                C
  On a dusty pew in a vestibule

            D              G
  Sits the Devil playing pocket pool

                         C         Am
  He's waiting for the next poor fool

          D               G
  Who forgot that it was Sunday


INSTRUMENTAL AFTER 2ND VERSE AND CHORUS:

   G         C     D          G         C         Am   D         G
