Graham Parker lyrics - The Up Escalator

Devil's Sidewalk

Original and similar lyrics
Like No Holding Back you can get the main melody (riff) in your head to play over over the intro chords, you're set. Capo at 2 makes the transitions more manageable for solo guitar. Chords mapped out as if they were open. Em C Em / / / Em C Em / / / Em C Em D G C D C Took a walk down hell's pavement G C D C Took a walk down pulled by the tide G C D C I had to make some new arrangement Em C G Oh I thought I'd reach the other side D Em C G Then someone opened up their mouth to talk D Em C G D They said (hey!) you ain't where you think you are Em C Em D You just landed on the devil's sidewalk G C D C Had a minor misunderstanding G C D C With a street lamp one night G C D C The smell of burning ... rubber hit my senses Em C G I thought I'd reach the other side D Em C G When someone opened up their mouth to talk D Em C G D They said (hey!) you ain't where you think you are Em C Em D You're just stranded on the devil's sidewalk Em C Em D You're just stranded on the devil's sidewalk F#m Am7 And it's cold, so cold F#m Am7 and it's cold, so cold F#m Am7 D and it's cold, so cold G D G C No-one's got names, under the flames G D G C Everyone screams, hope its a dream G D G C F#m nothing makes sense, everything's tense Bm D Wish I could say what it meant G C D C Took a long look down at the mirror G C D C Couldn't see my face at all G C D C Just those strait lines, leading to nowhere Em C G Oh I thought I'd reach the other side D Em C G When someone opened up their mouth as if to talk D Em C G D They said (hey!) you ain't where you think you are Em C Em D You just landed on the devil's sidewalk Em C Em D You just landed on the devil's sidewalk repeat and fade

Where The Sidewalk Ends

JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP "A Biography"
Oh talk to me Pretty girl in the corner Tryin' out your sex appeal Oh no, it won't bother me If you talk about your TV Jims And their overkill You can be ... You can roll out of you seats I know what I want, baby But you know exactly what I need Oh run with me I'll show you what life is like across the street Oh take me If you want to you can take me seriously I just wanna throw you one Time around the block I know those small minded people And I know that you won't talk, not much Don't put me on When all it really depends On how you see yourself Where the sidewalk ends Well ther goes James Richard Riley Screamin' his redundent lines He's such a time waster What's his he thinks is mine But none of this for me or you I got something for you better here I got loads of dreams, everything is deep I got laws, I got power, I got you And that's all that matters Hey you, they think you're crazy But I knew that the first time That you laid down They know it's just your behavior Well it's hard to be a lady When you paint your face just like a clown There's somethin' goin' on here I don't need to hear from you I got twenty five rings and a joker's ring .... been real to you Yeah they say I caught you Where the sidewalk ends But there ain't nobody buyin' nothin' Where the sidewalk ends

Come In From The Cold

JONI MITCHELL "Night Ride Home"
Back in 1957 We had to dance a foot apart And they hawk-eyed us from the sidelines Holding their rulers without a heart And so with just a touch of our fingers I could make our circuitry explode All we ever wanted Was just to come in from the cold Come in Come in from the cold (we were so young) Oh come in Come in from the cold We really thought we had a purpose We were so anxious to achieve We had hope The world held promise For a slave to liberty Freely I slaved away for something better And I was bought and sold And all I ever wanted Was just to come in from the cold Come in Come in from the cold (we were so sure) Oh come in Come in from the cold I feel your leg under the table Leaning into mine I feel renewed I feel disabled By these bonfires in my spine I don't know who the arsonist was Which incendiary soul But all I ever wanted Was just to come in from the cold Come in Come in from the cold (you were so warm) Oh come in Come in from the cold I am not some stone commission Like a statue in a park I am flesh and blood and vision I am howling in the dark Long blue shadows of the jackals Are falling on a pay phone by the road Oh all they ever wanted Was just to come in from the cold Come in Come in from the cold (I was so low) Oh come in Come in from the cold Is this just vulgar electricity Is this the edifying fire (it was so pure) Does your smile's covert complicity Debase as it admires (just a flu with a temperature) Are you just checking out your mojo (oohoo) Or am I just fighting off growing old (just a high fever) All I ever wanted Was just to come in from the cold Come in Come in from the cold (it was so pure) Oh come in Come in from the cold I know we never will be perfect Never entirely clear (when the moon shines) We get hurt and we just panic And we strike out Out of fear (you were only being kind) I fear the sentence of this solitude 200 years on hold (for my loving crime) Oh and all we ever wanted Was just to come in from the cold Come in Come in from the cold (when the moon shines) Oh come in Come in from the cold When I thought life had some purpose Then I thought I had some choice (I was running blind) And I made some value judgments In a self-important voice (I was outa line) But then absurdity came over me And I longed to lose control (into no mind) Oh all I ever wanted Was just to come in from the cold Come in Come in from the cold (you were so kind) Please come in (so kind) Come in from the cold Come in come in Come in from the cold, etc.
