G	Em	Am	C
Billy he's down by the railroad tracks
Sittin' low in the back seat of his Cadillac
Diamond Jackie, she's so intact
As she falls so softly beneath him

Am					Em
Jackie's heels are stacked
Billy's got cleats on his boots
Together they're gonna boogaloo down Broadway and come back home with the loot
It's midnight in Manhattan, this is no

C
time to get cute
D	Dsus2		D	Dsus2
It's a mad dog's promenade

G	Em	Am	C
So walk tall or baby don't walk at all

G	Em	Am	C

Fish lady, oh fish lady
She baits them tenement walls
She won't take corner boys
They ain't got no money
And they're so easy
I said "Hey, baby
Won't you take my hand
Walk with me down Broadway
Well mama take my arm andÊ move with me down Broadway"
I'm a young man, I talk it real loud
Yeah babe I walk it real proud for you
Ah so shake it away
So shake away your street life
Shake away your city life
Hook up to the train
And hook up to the night train
Hook it up
Hook up to the train

(strum fast)
Am					Em
But I know that she won't take the train, no she won't take the train
Oh she won't take the train, no she won't take the train
Oh she won't take the train, no she won't take the train

C
She's afraid them tracks are gonna slow her down
And when she turns this
D	Dsus2		D	Dsus2
boy'll be gone

G	Em	Am	C
So long, sometimes you just gotta walk on, walk on
Hey vibes man, hey jazz man, play me your serenade
Any deeper blue and you're playin' in your grave

Am				Em
Save your notes, don't spend 'em on the blues boy
Save your notes, don't spend 'em on the darlin' yearlin' sharp boy
Straight for the church note ringin',
C
vibes man sting a trash can

D	Dsus2		D	Dsus2
Listen to your junk man
Listen to your junk man
Listen to your junk man

G	Em	Am	C
He's singin', he's singin', he's singin'
All dressed up in satin, walkin' past the alley
He's singin', singin', singin', singin'
