same chords as before
The undercover cop never liked the monkey man
Even back in highShcool wanted to see him in the can
Jan got married at fourteen to a rackateer named bill
She made secret plans to the monkey man from a mansion on the hill
[E]It was out on Thunder Road, [D]Tweeter at the wheel
[A]Pulled into paradise, you could he[E]ar the tires squeal
[E]It was Jan who'd told him many times "It was you to [D]me who'd taught:
[D]In Kingston everything's legal as long as you don[A]'t get caught"
[E]And the walls came down[E]
[D]All the way to hell[D]

[E]Some place by Riway prison they[D] ran out of gas
[A]The undercover cop cornered 'em, said "You didn't think [E]that this could last"
[E]Jan jumped up out of bed said "There's some plac[D]e I gotta go"
[A]She took the gun out of the drawer, and said "It's[E] best that you don't know"
[E]An ambulance rolled up, St[D]ate Trooper close behind
[A]Tweeter took his gun away and[D] messed up his mind
[E]The undercover cop was found fa[D]ce down in a field
[A]The Monkey Man was on the bridge using[E] Tweeter as a shield
[E]And the walls came dow[E]n
[A]All the way to hell[A]

same chords
The town of Jersey City is quieting down again
I'm sitting in a gambling club called The Lion's Den
The TV set is blown up, every bit of it is gone
Ever since the night when they showed that the Monkey Man was on
Maybe I'll go to Florida, get myself some sun
There ain't no more opportunity here and everythings been done
Sometimes I think of Tweeter, sometimes I think of Jan
Sometimes I don't think about nothin' but the Monkey Man
And the walls came down
All the way to hell
Never saw them when they standin
Never saw them when they fell
