                [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


[Chorus]

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 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"


[Chorus]

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


[Chorus]

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 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


[Chorus]

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
