The dark end of the street

Song Author Chips Moman og Dan Penn Lyrics by: Chips Moman og Dan Penn Performer: James Carr Submitted by: irisand

At the [G]dark end [D]of the [Em]street,
that is [G]where we [D]always [Em]meet   
Hiding in [G]shadows where we [C]do not [G]belong,
livin' in [C]darkness to [D]hide our [G]wrongs
[C]You and [G]me, at the [C]dark end [D]of the [G]street
[C]You and [G]me   [D]    

And I know [G]time will [D]take its [Em]toll,
we'll have to [G]give back the [D]love we [Em]stole
It's a [G]sin and we [C]know it's [G]wrong,
oh but our [C]love keeps [D]comin' on [G]strong
[C]You and [G]me, at the [C]dark end [D]of the [G]street
[C]Mmm  [G]mm [D]    

And they gonna [G]find us, they gonna [D]find us
They gonna [Em]find us some[G]day  
[C]You and [G]me, at the [C]dark end [D]of the [G]street
[C]You and [G]me   [D]    

So when [G]daylight [D]comes [Em]around,
and if by [G]chance you're [D]walkin' down[Em]town   
If you should [G]see me, darlin', [C]walk [D]on   [G]by,  
Oh and [C]please, [D]please don't [G]cry  
[C]Tonight we'll [G]meet at the [C]dark end [D]of the [G]street
[C]Mmm  [G]mm  


At the dark end of the street,
that is where we always meet
Hiding in shadows where we do not belong,
livin' in darkness to hide our wrongs
You and me, at the dark end of the street
You and me

And I know time will take its toll,
we'll have to give back the love we stole
It's a sin and we know it's wrong,
oh but our love keeps comin' on strong
You and me, at the dark end of the street
Mmmmm

And they gonna find us, they gonna find us
They gonna find us someday
You and me, at the dark end of the street
You and me

So when daylight comes around,
and if by chance you're walkin' downtown
If you should see me, darlin', walk on by,
Oh and please, please don't cry
Tonight we'll meet at the dark end of the street
Mmmmm
