Trouble In Paris

Eric Andersen

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