JUST LIKE THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA - lyrics





YOU CAN Ask me -  whatever you please

You can leave me - I've been on my knees
But two gods they speak to me
One from above, one from beneath
And just like the devil and the deep blue sea
I'm right in between

And when I walk out - I walk out on the street,
And I don't  know - which way to move my feet
Because two voices they speak to me
One from Macy's one from Bleaker Street
And just like the devil and the deep blue sea
I'm right in between






  
And when you call up, when you call up on the phone
                                                                  
And you ask me - why I'm not coming home
It's not that I prefer to be alone
That's not the way to be
I'd live with you in your home
I just lost the key

And when I step out, when I step out on the street
And I see - what your eyes are asking me
Don't you think that I can see the need?
Don't you think that I can set it free?
Maybe if you could walk with me
Where the darkness steps across the sea

harmonica  INSTRU

The diamond morning is shining thru the trees
There's a lonesome whistle  blowing on the                                                                         breeze
And the night wind comes up from the beach
 A dark lady needs someone to meet
And the streetcars are passing on the street


(harmonica  INSTRU plus lead break)

And you ask me - why I won't leave
This place -   where I came to grieve
It's just that - in the midst of the falling leaves
I'm happy - like a fool without beliefs
Like a coat without it's sleeves
Like a girl without her jeans

(one verse harmonica & guitar INSTRU)
lead solo

(And I love you, Baby
You live in my memory
I can still see you - as your eyes look back at me
Somewhere I still miss that time
Somewhere beyond the beach
Like two ships that pass in the night
We signal each to each)...
                                    ((  Use this verse perhaps))

and /or

Repeat the first verse.
