        INTRO:  Em  (fades in)


                Em
            I.  in the moonlight,

                father said, "son,
                       C
                if you go out,
                              Em
                leave me your gun."

                by the moonlight,

                grandfather said, "boy,
                         C
                leadfoot angels
                            Em
                fly without joy."


                             D      C
       CHORUS:  scene of the crime,
                    Em
                who cares?
                                 D      C
                it's a desperate climb
                     Em
                downstairs.
                              D     C
                I've seen the homes
                       Em
                of the brave.
                             D    C
                they live in jail
                       A      B   Em
                or the grave.


                Em
           II.  where do the youth gangs

                go when they're old?
                        C
                when do speeders
                           Em
                run out of road?

                if life stops you,

                the ending is hard.
                       C
                if you slow down,
                              Em
                you skip that part.


                /// REPEAT CHORUS ///


 INSTRUMENTAL:  Em
                A - Em
                A - Em
                D - A
                A - Em
                Em


                Em
          III.  I was walking.

                they were so brisk.
                          C
                swift snowballing
                            Em
                of ultimate risk.

                'round the corner,

                red lights flash;
                          C
                blackened mourners,
                         Em
                pyres of ash.


                /// REPEAT CHORUS (hold B longer) ///


       ENDING:  Em  (fade out)
