[Verse]
    Bm                               Bm7
She came, as in the book, Mickey Spillane
                                G/B
That Saturday night dark masquerade
                                       Gmaj7        F#
Had filled his friend with lead, the same, sweetheart
    Bm                                   Bm7
But then, as nothing happens quite the same
                       G/B
Investigation is the game
                           Gmaj7  F#     Bm
He had to check her story right away-he dead
      Bm7
Sam Space his buddy Archer first to go he got it
       Bm7                                                 
She spelt it out, how could they know the 'Fatman' got it
Bm7                                                     -he dead
Her sister didn't really live at all-confusion-he dead
                                  G                 A        Bm7        G  F#
His chase led to the Fatman, to face the friends of Mr. Cairo
      Bm                               Bm7
That night, the double crosser got it right
                          G/B
Pretending he was really dim
                           Gmaj7         F#
He slipped to Sam a double gin (Mickey Finn)
    Bm                                  Bm7
He woke, the boys had gone, but not his gun
                               G/B
They'd left a note to lead him on
                                Gmaj7 F#     Bm
The chase to find the Maltese Falcon-you bet-
Bm
Early thirties gangster movies

Set to spellbind population
Bm
From Chicago to Hong Kong

Via Istanbul the Talking Tong
Bm
Dirty rats thru' prohibition

Money flowed thru gangsterism
Bm
Acting out his fantasy

In Hollywoods vicinity
Bm
The best part for the best rendition

Al Capone he sent to prison
Bm
Citizen Kane came fast and quickly

Conquerin ol' New York City
Bm
Poking fun at superstition

Media became television
Bm
Give me Cagney anyday

Or Jimmy Stewart for President
Bm
Or Edward 'G' and all those guys
      G              A
Who always shoot between the eyes
G             A
Between the eyes
G             A
Between the eyes

[Verse]
Bm                  F#m7
Father love do you work, do you work for Mother
Bm                       F#m7
Chances could call, and accept that, be no other
Bm                       F#m7
Science as it might, disappear correspond with colour
Bm                       F#m7
Chance is the fruit, will outlive, what is now the brother
Bm                       F#m7
Call for total wealth to distribute like a picture
Bm                       F#m7
In black and white, give it joy, give it, let it hit you
Bm                       F#m7
Spoil our existence by extreme gift to population
Bm                       F#m7
Father love do you work, do you work for Mother?
Bm                       F#m7
Tell me straight be the Godfather be no other
Bm                       F#m7
Media Kings give us now give us total movie
Bm                     G          A         Bm   Bm7   G/B
Now being here, being now, being here believing


[Verse]
Bm
One on one to talk to you
       Bm/A(x04432)
Like film stars they get close to you
           G
You've mirrored his appeal
     F#                          Bm
He wants you so, he wants to be beside you
      Bm/A     G        F#             Bm
Then you pass by giving him the other side of you
           Bm/A
Like the mystics do
          G             F#                 Bm - Bm/A - G - F#
So that every time he moves, he moves for you
Bm
Soul and light can always see
      BM/A                    G
The metting of true love and she
                      F#
This silent night and I,
                   Bm
I guess a lonely mind might see
      Bm/A               G
I've seen love on the screen
             F#                  B  F#/B(x24322)
I've seen a screen goddesss and me-oh
 B    F#              B
How often this, how often, this the power of you
    B  F#/A#(xx8676)A°
And so, I must confess
     C#m7
Whatever I see
     Em7/B(x22033)           B  F#
I'm meant to be there with you
      B   F#    B   F#            B    F#   B   F#
With you with you             With you, with you

[Verse]
Bm                                 G
Silent golden movies, talkies, technicolour, long ago
     A                            D             F#
My younger ways stand clearer, clearer than my footprints
Bm
Stardom greats I've followed closely
Bm/A
Closer than the nearest heartbeat
  G                              F#
Longer that expected-ther were great-
     B           F#
Oh love oh love just to see them
B                      F#
Acting on the silver screen, oh my
       B              F#
Clark Gable, Fairbanks, Maureen O'Sullivan
A6(x02222)     G#7               C#m
Fantasy would fill my life and I
        F#7       B
Love fantasy so much
B                   F#
Did you see in the morning light
           G#m        G#m/F#(xx4333)   E
I really talked, yes I did, to Gods early dawning light
           B                     F#
And I was privileged to be as I am to this day
           B                F#7
To be with you. To be with you
           B                F#7
To be with you. To be with you
            B  F#  B  F#  B
To be with you
