The Shining Hour

A5         C5                 B5     D5
Are we still on the phone=20
A5     C5                     B5                   D5
With lady Anna Clarke and her trumpet solo?
A5         C5                        B5      D5
Whose ghost sings for pay
A5        C5            B5             D5
In the blue billiard room of the Monterey
A5   C5                 B5      D5
For room and for board
A5           C5                       B5                D5
And the back door key is a 19th century civil war sword
A5        C5              B5            D5
Once owned by John Booth
A5          C5                   B5                   D5                 =20
And he misplaced his script when he caught his leather boot

 G5                            F5       D5      A5
This could be the shining hour
G5                      F5    D5      A5
Based on all this mad belief
G5                         F5             D5           A5
In money oil and angel powder
G5                        F5    Dm=09
In the new age magazine=20

There=92s a hole in the wall
Behind the photograph of Al Capone
He=92s sittin=92 down at city hall
The police they peek through here
And they watch you get dressed in the two-way mirror
But it=92s all in good spirits
And if you close eyes you can=92t help, help but to hear =91em move

This could be the shining hour
Based on all this mad belief
In the money oil and angel powder
In the new age magazine

I propose a toast
To the memory of the horse who carried King Tut and his gold
Into the sun
He collapsed last summer from a heat stroke somewhere in the east=20
village, oh=20
And it kills me to think
That I=92m no longer living
Just looking for excuses to dink
So lift up your glass
And your Ouija board =91cause I=92m fading, fading, fading fast
