A chordA D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
Ain't it just like the night to play tricks when you're tryin' to be so quiet
D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
We sit here stranded though we're all doin' our best to deny it
E chordE A chordA
And Louise holds a handful of rain temptin' you to defy it
D chordD A chordA
Lights flicker from the opposite loft
D chordD A chordA
In this room the heat pipes just cough
D chordD
The country music station plays soft
A chordA E7 chordE7
But there's nothing really nothing to turn off
A chordA D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
Just Louise and her lover so entwined
D chordD A chordA E7 chordE7 A chordA D chordD A chordA
And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind


A chordA D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
In the empty lot where the ladies play blind man's bluff with the key chain
D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
And the allnight girls they whisper of escapades out on the D chordD train
E chordE
We can hear the night watchman click his flashlight
A chordA
Ask himself if it's him or them that's realy insane
D chordD A chordA
Louise she's allright she's just near
D chordD A chordA
She's delicate and seems like the mirror
D chordD
But she just makes it all too concice and too clear
A chordA E7 chordE7
That Johanna's not here
A chordA D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
The ghost of 'lectricity howls in the bones of her face
D chordD A chordA E7 chordE7 A chordA D chordD A chordA
Where these visions of Johanna have now taken my place


A chordA D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
Now little boy lost he takes himself so seriously
D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
He brags of his misery he likes to live dangerously
E chordE A chordA
And when bringing her name up He speaks of a farewell kiss to me
D chordD A chordA
He's sure got a lotta gall
D chordD A chordA
to be so useless and all
D chordD
Muttering small talk at the wall
A chordA E7 chordE7
while I'm in the hall
A chordA D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
How can I explain Oh it's so hard to get on
D chordD A chordA E7 chordE7 A chordA D chordD A chordA
And these visions of Johanna they kept me up past the dawn


A chordA D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
Inside the museums Infinity goes up on trial
D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
Voices echo this is what salvation must be like after a while
E chordE A chordA
But Mona Lisa musta had the highway blues You can tell by the way she smiles
D chordD A chordA
See the primitive wallflower freeze
D chordD A chordA
When the jellyfaced women all sneeze
D chordD A chordA E7 chordE7
Hear the one with the mustache say Jeeze I can't find my knees
A chordA D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
Oh jewels and binoculars hang from the head of the mule
D chordD A chordA E7 chordE7 A chordA D chordD A chordA
But these visions of Johanna they make it all seem so cruel


A chordA D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
The peddler now speaks to the countess who's pretending to care for him

Sayin' Name me someone that's not a parasite
D chordD E7 chordE7 A chordA
and I'll go out and say a prayer for him But like Louise
E chordE
always says Ya can't look at much can ya man As she herself pre
A chordA
pares for him
D chordD A chordA
And Madonna she still has not showed
D chordD D chordD
We see this empty cage now corrode
D chordD A chordA
Where her cape of the stage once had flowed
D chordD A chordA
The fiddler he now steps to the road
D chordD A chordA
He writes ev'rything's been returned which was owed
D chordD A chordA E7 chordE7
On the back of the fish truck that loads While my conscience explodes
A chordA D chordD E chordE A chordA
The harmonicas play the skeleton keys and the rain
D chordD A chordA E7 chordE7 A chordA
And these visions of Johanna are now all that remain
