Tom Russell Coney Island Moon Lyrics

sponsored links
We laugh at Errol Flynn in the house of wax
Below our little hotel near the F-train track
And the roller coaster rumbled and it rattled our room
And he played an old memory on your souvenir
I remember you lips baby I remember your face
We were riding number 7 in the steeple chase
On the wonder wheel you looked down so far below
You said this must be what the angles see
when they look down in our soles

Then we were dancing neath the Coney Island moon
Dancing neath the Coney Island moon
Oh we counted on our pleasures with the fortune telling girl
Then we stood in line at Nathans
Oh we rode the Tilt-A-Whirl
In a dusty fun house mirror I watched you steal away

And I regret the simple words that I could never say
That I loved you back in '62
We were dancing neath the Coney Island moon
Now I walk alone in the Atlantics room
Yea pretty Kans still sings our favorite tunes
But the parachute jump is rusted in the rain and the wind
And I dreamt I'd saw us dancing down the boardwalk again

We were dancing neath the Coney Island Moon
Dancing neath the Coney Island Moon
Dancing neath the Coney Island Moon
Dancing neath the Coney Island Moon
Dancing neath the Coney Island Moon
Dancing neath the Coney Island Moon (Repeat and Fade)
