Lovers Lane


[Intro]
G  G G  G

[Verse]
G
She used to be a dancer, 
G
He used to be the man 
Em                C
But now they seem to settle 
                 G
For anything they can 
G
And their children all have scattered 
G
Far across the fruited plain 
Em            C
Left behind a silence 
                         G
That they just can't put away... 
G
So she gave herself to Jesus 
G
And that lasted 'bout a year 
Em                         C
While he thought about that waitress 
                    G
And cracked another beer... 
G
And all that quiet resignation 
G
Seemed like all they had to share 
Em                          C
They keep moving' round each other 
                     G
Like they ain't even there... 

[Chorus]
D                C
What about that moonlight 
G
What about that kiss 
D                       C
How did all those velvet nights 
G
End up here like this 
D                                C
And though the world keeps beatin' on 'em 
Em                                   C
Ya know they might go through it all again 
G
All for one more night 
D       C     G
Back on Lovers Lane... 

[Verse]
G
He tried to be a good provider 
G
He was a diehard union man 
Em                               C
But then the union told the rank and file 
G
Boys, we've done all that we can 
G
And so she watched him slowly vanish 
G
Just like a shadow going down 
Em                              C
You break the spirit of a working man 
              G
Might as well, might as well put him in the ground... 

[Chorus]
D                         C
What about that moonlight, tell me
G
What about that kiss
D                 C
How did all those velvet nights
G
End up here like this
D                                 C
And though the world keeps beatin' on 'em
Em                              C
Ya know they might go through it all again
G
All for one more night
D      C      G
Back on Lovers Lane...

[Verse]
G
And when you take too much for granted
G
Pretty soon you find it gone
Em                 C
Like where did all the years go
                  G
And what the hell went on
G
And there's a hole deep in the country
G
And we're all listed day to day
Em                C
Used to fill that hole with dreams now
G
Seems it all just slipped away...

[Chorus]
D                      C
What about that moonlight, tell me
G
What about that kiss
D                       C
How did all those velvet nights
G
End up here like this
D                                 C
And though the world keeps beatin' on 'em
Em                                C
Ya know they might go through it all again
G
All for one more night

[Outro]
D      C      G
