harry chapin – and the baby never cries lyrics

Loading...

well, i’ve sung out one more evening
yes i’m wrung out, feeling beat
and i walk on out the door once more
to an empty city street

a good guitar will serve you well
when you’re living in the lights
but it’s never going to warm you
in the middle of the night

and so i come and go with her in whispers
each and every time she says she dies
when she is reborn again, i kiss her
and the baby never cries

she works in the daytime
she leaves her baby with a friend
and i sing every evening
i only see her now and then

i come to her at midnight
when ’bout half the world’s asleep
and she puts me back together
in the hours before i leave

so i come and go with her in whispers
each and every time she says she dies
when she is reborn again, i kiss her
and the baby never cries

her apartment’s down on perry street
and there’s a tree in her backyard
and it rubs the bedroom window
when the wind is blowing hard

her old man had left her
he just took off for the coast
and i caught her on the rebound
when i needed her the most

so i come and go with her in whispers
and each and every time she says she dies
when she is reborn again, i kiss her
and the baby never cries
