Tweeter And The Monkeyman

	  		  D    Am    D     Am 

Am				  G 
Tweeter and the Monkey Man were hard up for cash 
      F				   Am 
They stayed up all night selling cocaine and hash 
				 G 
To an undercover cop who had a sister named Jan 
     F                       Am 
For reasons unexplained she loved the Monkey Man. 

Am				     G 
Tweeter was a boy scout before she went to Vietnam 
     F                         Am 
And found out the hard way, nobody gives a damn 
                                        G 
They knew that they found freedom just across that Jersey line 
         F                             Am 
So they hopped into a stolen car took Highway 99 

Am                        Em 
And the walls came down   All the way to hell 
      Dm 
Never saw them when their standing 
       Am 
Never saw them when they fell 

D   Am    D   Am 

Am                        G 
The undercover cop never liked the Monkey Man 
F                                   Am 
Even back in childhood he wanted to see him in the can 
                                  G 
Jan got married at fourteen to a racketeer named Bill 
         F                                      Am 
She made secret calls to the Monkey Man from a mansion on the hill 

Am                          G 
It was out on thunder road Tweeter at the wheel 
F                                     Am 
They crashed into paradise you could hear them tires squeal 
                                   G 
The undercover cop pulled up said Everyone of you is a liar 
        F                           Am 
If you dont surrender now its gonna go down to the wire 

Am                        Em 
And the walls came down   All the way to hell 
      Dm 
Never saw them when they're standing 
       Am 
Never saw them when they fell 

Am                              G 
An ambulance rolled up a state trooper close behind 
F                              Am 
Tweeter took his gun away and messed up his mind 
                                 G 
The undercover cop was left tied up to a tree 
F                                    Am 
Near the souvenir stand by the old abandoned factory 
                                G 
Next day the undercover cop was hot in pursuit 
F                                     
He was taking the whole thing personally 
           Am 
He didn't care about the loot 
                                    G 
Jan had told him many times it was you to me who taught 
    F                                              Am 
In Jersey anything is legal as long as you dont get caught 

Am                        Em 
And the walls came down   All the way to hell 
      Dm 
Never saw them when they're standing 
       Am 
Never saw them when they fell 

D   Am   D   Am 

Am                              G 
Someplace by Rahway prison they ran out of gas 
F                                         Am 
The undercover cop had cornered them said Boy  

you didn't think that this could last 
                                     G 
Jan jumped out of bed said There's someplace I gotta go 
     F                                          Am 
She took a gun out of the drawer and said It's best if you don't know 

 Am                                 G 
The undercover cop was found face down in a field 
F                                       Am 
The Monkey Man on the river bank using Tweeter as a shield 
                                    G 
Jan said to the Monkey Man I'm not fooled by Tweeters curl 
   F                             Am 
I knew him long before he ever became a Jersey girl 

Am                        Em 
And the walls came down.. All the way to hell.. 
      Dm 
Never saw them when they're standing 
       Am 
Never saw them when they fell 

D   Am   D   Am 

Am                              G 
Now the town of Jersey City is quieting down again 
     F                          Am 
I'm sitting in a gambling club called the Lion's Den 
                                G 
The TV set been blown up, every bit of it is gone 
      F                                    Am 
Ever since the nightly news show that the Monkey Man was on 

Am                              G 
I guess I'll go to florida and get myself some sun 
       F                              Am 
There ain't no more opportunity here everything has been done 
                                  G 
Sometime I think of Tweeter, some time I think of Jan 
                                    Am 
Sometime I think of nothing but the Monkey Man 

Am                        Em 
And the walls came down all the way to hell 
      Dm 
Never saw them when they're standing 
       Am 
Never saw them when they fell
