Mae Moore Only Man on Coney Island Lyrics

sponsored links
The day they shut down the carnival
I had nowhere to go
I heard about some work stateside
A circus run, might be fun
So I left my red clay home, hitchhiked to
New York City
Bright lights on the river, Liberty deliver me
I'm so far from heaven and I'm all alone
When the last boat leaves tonight,
I'm the only man of Coney Island
I got the job because I'm strong
They don't care where I come from
No they prefer not to know, in case I crack
Like Jack before me.
Suicide is what they meant, beneath
The double Ferris wheel
Yes, it can get lonely here, without my wife and
Family near
I'm so far from heaven and I'm all alone
When the last crowd leaves tonight
I'm the only man, on Coney Island
On the boardwalk promenade, lovers
Trade their promises
Beneath the starry lights shining with artifice
It's been twenty years, it seems just like yesterday
I haven't seen Canada, time just crept away
I'm so far from heaven and I'm all alone
When the last boat leaves tonight...
I'm so far from heaven and I'm all alone
When the last star leaves the sky
I'm the only man on Coney Island
