Letra de Desolation Row



D

They're selling postcards of the hanging.

G D

They're painting the passports brown.

A7

The beauty parlour's filled with sailors.

G D

The circus is in town.

D

Here comes the blind commissioner.

G D

They've got him in a trance.

A7

One hand's tied to the tightrope walker.

G D

The other is in his pants.

G

And the riot squad they're restless

D G

They need some where to go.

D A7

As lady and I look out tonight

G D

On Desolation Row.



D

Cinderella she seem so easy.

G D

It takes on to know one she smiles.

A7

Then puts her hand in her back pocket,

G D

Betty Davis style.

D

Then in comes Romeo he's moaning.

G D

You Belong to me I believe.

A7

And someone says your in the wrong place my friend

G D

You better leave.

G

And the only sound that's left

D G

After the ambulances go.

D A7

Is Cinderella sweeping up

G D

On Desolation Row.



D

Now the moon is almost hidden

G D

The stars are beginning to hide

A7

The fortune telling lady

G D

Has already taken all her things inside.

D

All except for Cane and Able

G D

And the Hunch Back of Notre Dame

A7

Everyone is making love

G D

Or else expecting rain

G

And the good Samaritan he's dressing

D G

He's gettin ready for the show.

D A7

He's going to the carnival

G D

Tonight on Desolation Row.



D

Now Ophelia she's 'neath the window.

G D

For her I feel so afraid.

A7

On her twenty-second birthday

G D

She already is an old maid.

D

To her death is quite romantic.

G D

She wears an iron vest.

A7

Her profession's her religion,

G D

Her sin is her lifelessness.

G

And though her eyes are fixed upon

D G

Noah's great rainbow

D A7

She spends her time peeking

G D

Into Desolation Row.



D

Einstein disguised as Robin Hood

G D

With his memories in a trunk

A7

Passed this way an hour ago

G D

With his friend a jealous monk.

D

He looked so frightful

G D

As he bummed a cigarette

A7

Then went off sniffing drain pipes

G D

And reciting the alphabet.

G

No you would not think to look at him

D G

That he was famous long ago

D A7

For playing electric violin

G D

On Desolation Row.

D

Doctor filth he keeps his word

G D

Inside a leather cup

A7

But all his sexless patients

G D

Are trying to blow it up.

D

Now his nurse a local looser

G D

She's in charge of the cyanide hole

A7

And she also keeps the cards that read

G D

Have mercy on his soul.

G

They all play on penny whistles

D G

You can hear them blow

D A7

If you lean your head out far enough

G D

From Desolation Row



D

Across the street they've nailed the curtains

G D

They're gettin ready for the feast

A7

The phantom of the opera

G D

A perfect image of a priest

D

They're spoon feedin Casanova

G D

To get him to feel more assured

A7

Then they'll killed him with self confidence

G D

After poisoning him with words

G

And the phantom shouting to skinning girls

D G

Get outta her don't you know

D A7

Casanova is just being punished

G D

For going to Desolation Row.



D

Now at midnight all the agents

G D

And the superhuman crews

A7

Round up everyone

G D

That knows more than they do.

D

Then they bring them to the factory

G D

Where the heart attack machines

A7

Is strapped across their shoulders

G D

And then the kerosene

G

Is brought down from the castles

D G

By insurance men that go

D A7

Check to see that nobody is escaping

G D

To Desolation Row



D

Praise be to Nero's Neptune

G D

The Titanic sails at dawn

A7

And everybody shouting

G D

Which side are you on

D

And Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot

G D

Fighting in the captains tower

A7

While calypso signers laugh at them

G D

And fishermen hold flowers

G

Between the windows of the sea

D G

Where lovely mermaids flow

D A7

And nobody has to think too much

G D

About Desolation Row



D

Yes I received your letter yesterday

G D

About the time the door knob broke.

A7

When you asked me how I was

G D

Was that some kind of joke.

D

All those people that you mention

G D

Yes I know them they're quite lame.

A7

I had to rearrange their faces

G D

And give them all another name.

G

Right now I can't read too good

D G

Don't send me no more letters no.

D A7

Not unless you mail them from

G D

Desolation Row.
