Quay Hotel

	  		
Intro Dm 

verse 1 

Dm 
The sun was down, the mist was high 
Dm 
I just kissed my love goodbye 
Am 
She was off to chase a will 
Dm 
From an uncle in west Brazil 

Dm 
So there I was, all alone 
Dm 
Another week away from home 
Am 
Walking down some foggy street 
Dm 
Looking out for a place to sleep 

C                                        F           Am          Gm 
But a sound through the wind was carried well (oh so well) 
    C#7                      A         Dm 
The squeaking sign of Quay Hotel 

verse 2 

Dm 
Well the lights were dim, the lifts were slow 
Dm 
Still people, they come and go 
Am 
Full of whispers and shady deals 
Dm 
Pouring out over greasy meals 

Dm 
Then evening came, and songs would flow 
Dm 
From the lady at 'le grande piano' 
Am 
But the voice of Lilli-Ann 
Dm 
Sounds suspiciously like a man 

C                             F                Am         A7 
Funny how I never heard those songs (all those songs) 
                                    Dm 
But they knew them well - in Quay Hotel 


Dm Dm Dm C 
Am Dm Dm 

verse 3 

Dm 
Well the song and dance went raving on 
Dm 
But I kept feeling there was something wrong 
Am 
For the look on every face 
Dm 
Put a gloom on this eerie place 

Dm 
Nervously they seemed to wait 
Dm 
For some dramatic unknown fate 
Am 
They seemed to know their every stand 
Dm 
Like a spring-winding monkey band 

Dm 
I ran up to the door and tried to turn the keys 
Dm 
But a porter said, 'This way, please 
Am 
Retire to your room 
Dm 
For your turn will be coming soon.' 

C                              F           Am         A7 
And the night began to feel so long (oh so long) 
                                    Dm 
I didn't sleep so well - in Quay Hotel 

Dm Dm Dm C Am 
Dm Dm Am Dm 
Dm Dm Am Dm 

Dm 
I knew I was a mistaken face 
Dm 
In this macabre waiting place 
Am 
For the guests of this Hotel 
Dm 
Are checked in by the tolling bell 
C                                 F        Am        A7 
For I awoke in the same old foggy street 
                                    Dm 
Without a trace in hell - of Quay Hotel 

Dm Dm Dm C 
Am Dm 
Dm
