City Lights

Song Author Bill Anderson Lyrics by: Bill Anderson Performer: Ray Price Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]A bright array of city lights
As f[C]ar as I can see
The g[D7]reat white way shines through the night
On l[G]onely guys like me


The cabaret's and honky tonks
Their f[C]lashing signs invite
A [D7]broken heart to lose itself
In the glow of city light[G]s  

[D7]Lights that say forget her name
In a [G]glass of sherry wine
[D7]Lights that offer other girls
For e[G]mpty hearts like mine


They paint a pretty picture
Of a w[C]orld that's gay and bright
And it's ju[D7]st a mask for loneliness
Behind those city lights[G]    


The world was dark and God made stars
To b[C]righten up the night
But Go[D7]d would put the stars above
I don't beli[G]eve made those lights


It's just a place for men to cry
When thi[C]ngs don't turn out right
Just a pl[D7]ace to run away and hide
Behind those city light[G]s  

[D7]Lights that say forget her love
In a d[G]ifferent atmosphere
[D7]Lights that lure are nothing but
A [G]masquerade for tears


They paint a pretty picture
But my arm[C]s can’t hold them tight
And I j[D7]ust can't say I love you
To a street of city light[G]s  

A bright array of city lights
As far as I can see
The great white way shines through the night
On lonely guys like me

The cabaret's and honky tonks
Their flashing signs invite
A broken heart to lose itself
In the glow of city lights

Lights that say forget her name
In a glass of sherry wine
Lights that offer other girls
For empty hearts like mine

They paint a pretty picture
Of a world that's gay and bright
And it's just a mask for loneliness
Behind those city lights

The world was dark and God made stars
To brighten up the night
But God would put the stars above
I don't believe made those lights

It's just a place for men to cry
When things don't turn out right
Just a place to run away and hide
Behind those city lights

Lights that say forget her love
In a different atmosphere
Lights that lure are nothing but
A masquerade for tears

They paint a pretty picture
But my arms can’t hold them tight
And I just can't say I love you
To a street of city lights
