Midnight Town

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: John Kahn

Recored on 'Compliments Of' but seemingly never played live

I guess you think
I'd never want to harm you
You better beware
That dream you dreamed
In time it could demand
The very ground on which I stand

Maybe you think
That I am just a stranger
Or maybe recall
I knew your name
You wrote it on the wall
In letters black and tall

Way down
Way down in midnight town
Way down

Way down
Way down in midnight town
Way down

When midnight dawns
Upon each painted martyr in the circus
Maybe you'll recall
We met before
So please don't you accuse me
Of dealing with you loosely

Way down
Way down in midnight town
Way down
In midnight town

Way down
Way down in midnight town
Way down
Way down in midnight town
