Brian Wilson — City Blues lyrics

With Eric Clapton


The midnight's down and the sun's all gone in the city
In the city
The sirens are hummin', everything's so gritty
It's a pity, it's a pity

Yeah, woah
City Blues—all alone and comin' 'round your windowpane
Oh . . .
Gets me to leave then I'll catch the train and get out—yes I will
City Blues—nothing ever seems to come to no good

The sky is gray—everybody's gotta pay in the city
In the city
The strange loud people made a mess of the world—it wasn't pretty
It's a pity

Repeat chorus (2x)
