City Lights
recorded by Ray Price
written by Bill Anderson
 
G                                                   
A bright array of city lights
    C
As far as I can see
      D7                                           
The great white way shines through the night
    G          
On lonely guys like me
 
 
The cabaret's and honky tonks
       C                           
Their flashing signs invite
  D7
A broken heart to lose itself
                         G        
In the glow of city lights
 
D7                                 
Lights that say forget her name
      G                      
In a glass of sherry wine
D7                               
Lights that offer other girls
     G                        
For empty hearts like mine
 
 
They paint a pretty picture
      C                             
Of a world that's gay and bright
           D7                            
And it's just a mask for loneliness
                        G        
Behind those city lights
 
                                         
The world was dark and God made stars
    C                       
To brighten up the night
      D7                                
But God would put the stars above
            G                            
I don't believe made those lights
 
 
It's just a place for men to cry
        C                             
When things don't turn out right
         D7                            
Just a place to run away and hide
                       G        
Behind those city lights
 
D7                                 
Lights that say forget her love
      G                      
In a different atmosphere
D7                                  
Lights that lure are nothing but
   G                      
A masquerade for tears
 
 
They paint a pretty picture
          C                          
But my arms can’t hold them tight
        D7                          
And I just can't say I love you
                         G        
To a street of city lights
