Tweeter And The Monkey Man

	  		
Intro: E  D  A  E 

verse 1 

E                               D 
Tweeter and the Monkey Man were hard up for cash 
     A                           E 
They stayed up all night selling cocaine and hash 
E                              D 
To an undercover cop who had a sister named Jan 
    A                       E  
For reasons unexplained she loved the Monkey Man 
E                                   D 
Tweeter was a Boy Scout, 'course he went to Viet Nam 
A                      E 
Found out the hard way nobody gives a damn 
E                                     D 
Thought that they'd find freedom just across the Jersey line 
A                              E 
Hopped into a stolen car, took Highway 99

verse 1 E D The undercover cop, he never liked the Monkey Man A E Even back in high school, wanted to see him in the can E D Jan got married at fourteen to a racketeer named Bill A E Made secret plans with the Monkey Man from a mansion on the hill E D It was out on Thunder Road, Tweeter at the wheel A E Pulled into paradise, you could hear the tires squeal E D It was Jan who'd told him many times "It was you to me who'd taught: A E In Kingston everything's legal as long as you don't get caught"

E When the walls came down D All the way to hell A Never saw them when they standin E Never saw them when they fell

verse 2 E D Some place by Riway prison they ran out of gas A E The undercover cop cornered 'em, said "You didn't think that this could last" E D Jan jumped up out of bed said "There's some place I gotta go" A E She took the gun out of the drawer, and said "It's best that you don't know" E D An ambulance rolled up, State Trooper close behind A E Tweeter took his gun away and messed up his mind E D The undercover cop was found face down in a field A E The Monkey Man was on the river bridge using Tweeter as a shield

E When the walls came down D All the way to hell A Never saw them when they standin E Never saw them when they fell

Bridge E A G E A G E A G E A G E verse 3 E D The town of Jersey City is quieting down again A E I'm sitting in a gambling club called The Lion's Den E D The TV set is blown up, every bit of it is gone A E Ever since the night when they showed that the Monkey Man was on E D Maybe I'll go to Florida, get myself some sun A E There ain't no more opportunity here and everything's been done E D Sometimes I think of Tweeter, sometimes I think of Jan A E Sometimes I don't think about nothin' but the Monkey Man
tabchorus
E When the walls came down D All the way to hell A Never saw them when they standin E Never saw them when they fell
