Neon Filler

Howe Gelb

D - C#m - Bm - A - G - F#m - E7

Em (7Fret) - D (5Fret)

    things could have been better
    they sure could not have gotten much worse  
D C#m Bm A*
when there are tears out in the alley
and laughter waiting
 out front in the hearse 
     and there's remark about contender
     repulsa aint too hard too find
     conclusion based on surrender
     and the general dismissal of the merit of mankind
     the snakes and the sawtooths
     they lay loving the buck
     spending all their time
     setting up camp and
     running amuck   


   liiiiiiight is not the neon filler
     not the memory of sun filled days by solar spark
   light is the moses  
  splitting the waves
    in a sea so dark            

 Repeat tbe same structure for tbe last two verses!

There's a town in the high desert
where doctor gene scott says the demons run
alongside a chunk of heaven hovering there
where the wind in the image of the throne rides shotgun
riddles of the wonderment, wonders of the firmament
and me laid up, laid off and laying low


things could have been better
they sure could not have gotten any worse
tears out in the alleyway
and laughter waiting out front in the hearse
