1. I`m walking through the summer nights,
   E        G#m/D#    C#m G#m/B E
   Juke-box plaing low  
                  G#m/D# C#m           G#m/B
   Yesterday ev`rything was going too fast,
   E     G#m/D#          C#m  G#m/B
   Today it`s moving too slow.
   A     D               A D
   I got no place to turn, 
   A                  D      A
   I got nothing left to burn
   B     E                G#m/D#     C#m                 G#m/B 
   Don`t know if I saw youif I would kiss you or kill you, 
       E                   G#m/D#           C#m G#m/B
   It prob`ly wouldn`t matter to you anyhow.
   A           E        B               F#
   You left me standing in the doorway, crying,
   A                             E
   I got nothing to go back to now.

2. The light in this place is so bad,
   Making me sick in the head,
   All the laughter is just making me sad,
   The stars had turned cherry red,
   I`m strumming on my gay guitar,
   Smoking a cheap cigar,
   The ghost of our old love has not gone away,
   Don`t lok like will anytime soon,
   You left me standing in the doorway crying
   Under the midnight moon.

3. Maybe they`ll get me and maybe they won`t,
   But not tonight and it won`t be here,
   There are things I could saybut I don`t,
   I know the merci of God must be near,
   I`ve been riding the midnight train,
   Got ice water in my veins,
   I would be crazy if I took you back,
   It would go up against every rule,
   You left me standing in the doorway,crying,
   Suffering like fool.

4. When the last rays of daylight go down,
   Buddy, you`ll roll no more,
   I can hear the church bells ringing in the yard,
   I wonder who they`re ringing for,
   I know I can`t win,
   But my heart just won`t give in,
   Last night I danced with a stranger,
   But she just reminded me you were the one,
   You left me standing in the doorway, crying,
   In the dark land of the sun.

5. I`ll eat when I`m hungry, drink when I`m dry,
   And live my life on the square,
   And even if the flesh falls off my face,
   I know someone will be there to care,
   It alwas mean so much,
   Even the softest touch,
   I see nothing to be gained by any explanation,
   There are no words that need to be said,
   You left me standing in the doorway, crying,
   Blues wrapped around my head.
