Tokyo And The Band Played

Track Info

I was sitting outside 

one night, and...
A D The moon hung like a shadow on a
rung over Shanghai
F#m Them soldier boys were returning
home screaming "Banzai"
A And the kids are still playing their game A F#m Getting hustled and rustled out in the rain Bm A E As I sat inside listening to the broadcast A E Oh, save my soul, sweet rock and roll,
'cause I'm sinkin' fast
And then the band played A D Now the legendary chaplain of the
fighting 51st was getting ready to go
F#m I said, "Padre, do you know a cheap virgin
who likes to tango?"
A He said, "You can try Linda Lee",
around the corner and across the sea
Bm A E Word is out, word is out she's fast A E Well, blow me down now, Linda,
'cause I'm sinkin' fast
F#m Yes, and them cats are sure getting
fat down in the train yard
Bm And the sandman brings them dreams to
ship out in the boxcars
Bm The union says, "Hold.
" Break out the dice,

break out the gold
D E It's lunchtime at last A And old big Mama said,
"George Raft's tonight on the late show"
D She sits straddling a kitchen chair,
really gung-ho
F#m She shivers with chills,
wet with slot car thrills
A E Hypnotically lost in the glass G E And we all sigh with the sunrise E As we watch the credits pass A D And then the morning cloak fell down like a
hoax over Sleepy Town
F#m And garbage truck vigilantes out
making the last rounds
Bm The inheritor he sipped his beer and
poked cute fun of the queer
D E And threatened to kick his butt One, two, three, ow!
It's on the radio and

he listened to the bass man
And the boys in the band sang
(Whoa whoa whoa wo-ho)
A F#m That's right (Whoa whoa whoa wo-ho) A E I'm so excited (Whoa whoa whoa wo-ho) A F#m Everybody (Whoa whoa whoa wo-ho) A And the band played
(Whoa whoa whoa wo-ho)
A F#m Everybody (Whoa whoa whoa wo-whoa)
