Trouble In Paris  Eric Andersen



[D]There's a blue shadow moving through the [D/C#]Moulin Rouge
[Bm]And a man with a knife point [D]pickin his teeth
[G]An off duty cop sits with his [Em]back to the door
And [A]somebody just took a piss in the sink
[D]The cop's drinkin Pernod thinks he's d[D/C#]rinkin absinthe
[Bm]With the girl who had loved him on the [D]Rue St. Denis
[G]While somebody's slinkin smokin [Em]under a light
And there's [A]trouble in Paris [Bm]tonight
[D]Now Simone pulls the collar up t[D/C#]ight to her throat
[Bm]While the riverboats knock under the [D]old Pont Neuf
[G]A rat makes a run for his [Em]hole in the wall
She [A]stops by a street light and lights a straight cigarette
[D]A Gitane on his knees starts to [D/C#]howl like a dog
[Bm]She closes her purse and tries to [D]peer through the fog
[G]Nothin seems wrong but [Em]somethin ain't right
And there's [A]trouble in Paris toni[Bm]ght
[D]Now the man cleanin his teeth well he [D/C#]ain't satisfied
[Bm]He's hungry for somethin that he [D]just can't define
[G]The one by the sink is now [Em]sweeping the floor
And the [A]cop he ran short of dreams a long time before
[D]While under a street lamp there's tro[D/C#]uble it seems
[Bm]First there's a struggle and [D]then there's a scream
[G]She didn't know what hit her when he a[Em]sked for a light
And there's [A]trouble in Paris [Bm]tonight
[D]Simone had been a town girl not f[D/C#]ar north of Nantes
[Bm]Who did it for money once then [D]she just couldn't stop
[G]Had a fight with her mother [Em]another runaway teen
[A]Who had hotel love with a cop on the Rue St. Denis
[D]And a boy once abandoned by a [D/C#]cop and a whore
[Bm]Has a knife in his hands he was a [D]child of the war
[G]It was either Simone or [Em]cut out the lights
And there's [A]trouble in Paris [Bm]tonight
[D]There's a blue shadow moving through the M[D/C#]oulin Rouge
[Bm]And a man with a knife point [D]pickin his teeth
[G]An off duty cop sits with his [Em]back to the door
[A]And somebody just took a piss in the sink
[D]While somebody's standin out [D/C#]cold in the rain
[Bm]Could be all warm inside [D]drinking champagne
[G]Being thin as a shadow smokin [Em]under a light
And there's [A]trouble in Paris t[Bm]onight
[G]Bein thin as a shadow smokin [Em]under a light
And there's [A]trouble in Paris [Bm]tonight
