CROWDED STREET

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter



          Gm - Cm - Gm - F-F#-Gm    <-progression repeats during verses
  INTRO:  doo-doo-doo... (etc.)


      I.  people say I'm very strange
          to keep holding on to a dream.
          but my father said:
          she's the one you'll wed.
          and I can't change it now.
          not gonna giver her up.
          don't know how to stop.
          and I'm not really wanting to.
          I know her ways
          and where she stays.
          and when she plays,
          I see who comes and goes.


     II.  through the screen I see her there
          as she serenely combs her hair.
          gonna wear my name -
          like a hurricane.
          ill winds disturb the shade.
          walkin' a crowded street,
          callers pound concrete.
          who put up this barricade?
          give me a bomb,
          an Uzi gun,
          uranium,
          arrows or a hand grenade.

               C    D    Eb  F   D
 BRIDGE:  they come from all a - round.
          C    D   Eb   F   D
          they all want her hand:
          G           Bb
          men from Cyprus,
          C                D
          men from Ireland,
          G
          even a rabbi
                F    F#  G
          and a medicine man.


CHOPPY STRUM:  Gm - Cm - Gm - F-F#-Gm   (twice)


          Gm
    III.  got a new kid on the block,
          Cm
          looks like a white Mohawk.
          Gm                       F   F#  Gm
          girlfriends come and go, day by  day.
          Gm
          torn shirt and leather socks;
          Cm
          four megawatt jam box.
          Gm                         F   F#  G
          earth quakes when the loud voices  say:

          they say:
          Gm
          hey ho  (hey ho)
          Cm
          hey ho  (hey ho)
          Gm                                   F-F#-G
          hey (hey), hey (hey)


INSTRUMENTAL:  G - Bb - C - D - G - F-F#-G


          Gm
     IV.  lots of women on the street
          Cm
          cook good meals that you can eat.
          Gm                               F   F#  Gm
          next door, all around the world, all a - board.
          Gm
          they got water, they got air.
          Cm
          what do you mean you can't live there?
          Gm                      F   F#  G
          breath in, breath out - cut the chord.

          they say:
          Gm
          hey ho  (hey ho)
          Cm
          hey ho  (hey ho)
          Gm                                   F-F#-G
          hey (hey), hey (hey)
