The Last Carnival


Auteur/Compositeur : Bruce Springsteen

Texte chanson

Sundown, sundown They're taking all the tents down Where have you gone my handsome Billy? Sundown, sundown The carnival trains' leavin' town Where are you now my darlin' Billy? We won't be dancing together on the high wire Facing the lions with you at my side anymore We won't be breathin' the smoke and the fire On the midway Hangin' from the trapeze my wrists waitin' for your wrists Two daredevils high up on the wall of death You throwin' the knife that lands inches from my heart Sundown Moonrise, moonrise The light that was in your eyes Has gone away Daybreak, daybreak The thing in you that made me ache Has gone to stay We'll be riding the train without you tonight The train that keeps on movin' Its black smoke scorching the evening sky A million stars shining above us like every soul livin' and dead Has been gathered together by a God to sing a hymn over your bones Sundown, sundown Empty are the fairgrounds Where are you now my handsome Billy?
