Ten Oclock In Toronto

Christine Lavin



-----------------------------------------

 Actually in C#; capo 6.
[The parts that say "G(9) G" are often a complicated mix of
G(9), G, and G6. Same deal for "Em(9) Em7". See the end
of the file for details.]

 G(9GG(9G
It's ten o'clock in Toronto, I check into a room on the twenty-first floor
 Em(9Em7Em(9Em7
   I'm traveling on cruise control, turn on the TV and lock the door
 G(9GG(9G
   I hear a news reporter; she says, will you look into the sky
 Em(9Em7Em(9Em7
Tonight we're in the midst of a lunar eclipse; mmmm, what a heavenly sight
 CCCC
 I pull back the curtains, and there above the building across the street
 DDDD
   I spy the man in the moon playing hide and seek
 G(9instruGGG(9
  mental]  
 Em(9instruEm7Em7Em(9
  mental]  
I try to keep my eyes fixed on that elusive moon
But I'm distracted; across the way, I can see into some rooms
There's a young woman sitting at a desk, so busy writing
Now a man sits next to her, looks like they're fighting
She buries her head in her hands, and silently she cries
He gets up, paces, pounds the wall, shakes his fist up to the sky
 instrumental
(To the moon, Alice)

Two rooms down, I can see Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly
No, it's just a Hitchcock film; a wide-screen color TV
Over in the corner, there's an old man playing with a black cat
If he saw me spying like this, what would he think of that
Would he think that I am a voyeur, or just another lonely one
An interloper taking notes of heartache on the run
 instrumental
Oh, oh, oooooh
Ba da dee deeee
Ba da dee dee deeee deeee deee-eeee
Now the moon is bathed in darkness, that woman is bathed in tears
Grace Kelly bathed in the limelight for so many years
I'm bathed in the darkness behind this window pane
Watching light and love and life wax and wane
Now the old man and the black cat are dozing in an easy chair
Are visions dancing in their heads of moonbeams in the air
 instrumental
Oh, oh, oooooh
Ba da dee deeee
Ba da dee dee deeee deeee deee-eeee
It's ten o'clock in Toronto (ten o'clock in Toronto)
Ten o'clock in Toronto (ten o'clock in Toronto)
Ten o'clock in Toronto (ten o'clock in Toronto)
Ten o'clock in Toronto (ten o'clock in Toronto)

CHORDS:
In the intro and ending, she plays the G & Em parts something like this:
(d=strum down, u=strum up, p=pick just the lowest 1 or 2 strings;
capital letters are accented.)
|G(9) | G G6 G |G(9) | G G6 G |
|P D u D u d U |d U d U d U d u |P D u D u d U |d U d U d U d u |
|^ ^ ^ ^ |^ ^ ^ ^ |^ ^ ^ ^ |^ ^ ^ ^ |
|Em(9) Em7 Em Em7 |Em9 Em7 Em Em7 |
|P D d u d U | u d U u D u |p u D U u d U | u d U u D u |
|^ ^ ^ ^ |^ ^ ^ ^ |^ ^ ^ ^ |^ ^ ^ ^ |
G(9)=320203; G=320003; G6=322003; Em(9)=024000; Em7=020000; Em=022000
In the instrumental parts at the end of each verse, and to some
extent within the verses, she plays the G chords with a sharper 2/2
feel (one TWO three FOUR); the Em's get a little sharper, but not as
much as the G's. And note that the subtle chord changes aren't as
pronounced in the parts that have words.
