"Moon Over Bourbon Street"

   |:       F#m7-5     B7                Em
1. Theres a moon over  Bourbon Street    tonight

2. It was   many years ago that I became what I am

         F#m7-5          B7               Em
1. I see faces as they   pass beneath the pale lamp light

2. I was trapped in this life like an     innocent lamb

           C             B7          Em
1. I've no choice but to follow that call
2. now I   never show my face at     noon

       C#dim              F#7             C            B7
1. the bright lights, the people, and the moon and     all
2. and you'll only see me walking  by the light of the moon

       F#m7-5       B7            Em
1.     I pray every day to be     strong
2. the brim of my   hat hides the eye of a beast
[ Tab from: ]
            F#m7-5      B7             Em
1. for I    know what I do must be     wrong
2. I've the face of a   sinner but the hands of a priest

          C            B/F#              Em
Oh you'll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet

                C         B7      Em	:|
while there's a moon over Bourbon Street
