INTRO - Csus4 Ab69 / Csus2 / Ab69 G-7 

The big man arrives
Csus4/G       Ab69
Disco dancers greet him
Plainclothes cops greet him
Small town, big man, fresh lipstick glistening
Sophomore jive
Csus4/G         Ab69
The band sounds like typewriters
The big man he's not listening
His eyes hold Edith
                        Csus4/G (D-7)
His left hand holds his right
What does that hand desire
Ab69             G-7     Csus2/G
That he grips it so tight

Edith in the ring
The passed-over girls are conferring
The man with the diamond ring is purring
All claws for now withdrawn
One by one they bring
His renegade stories to her
His crimes and his glories to her
In challenge they look on
Women he has taken grow old too soon
He tilts their tired faces
Gently to the spoon

Edith in his bed
A plane in the rain is humming
The wires in the walls are humming
Some song-some mysterious song
Bars in her head
Beating frantic and snowblind
Romantic and snowblind
She says-his crime belongs
Edith and the Kingpin
Each with charm to sway
Are staring eye to eye
They dare not look away
You know they dare not look away
