From the debut album  'Axe Victim'  comes this unusual love song.  If 
the lyrics seem to be a little cryptic, that's because they spell out a 
coded reference to Bills secret lover.  Fans will know what I mean.
When you see a chord like this - D/C# - the first letter before the
forward slash is the chord, the letter after is the bass note. This is 
known as a 'slash' chord. 

Tuning: EADGBe

| x  Mute note
| D/C# chord/bass note


Intro: electric guitar...

Lyrics: Room in the East invested with meanings, Open to none but the strange and the wild Sunset encounters with destiny's chances, Envelopes marked for the personal life Night falling, hiding the poet's transgression, Blown in the winds of aquarian tides Echoed words spoken by token romantics Rock 'n roll superman, Ghosts of new vice. Making love in strange autos Whilst life's ink sings always That love is swift arrows my dear Oh, God in some heaven who's number is seventeen Dressed you in blue jeans this year To torment my soul Oh, leave me alone... Rules to be broken by reckless and young men, Odes to be written by passion's sick hand Seeds to be sown on the rich fields of promise, Ends and beginnings that never quite meet Nothing of value that hasn't yet vanished, Brown-eyed and wise as the feminine fates Evening's sweet menace, revealing, inviting, Highways to paradise Grey lines of grace. Making love in strange autos Whilst life's ink sings always That love is swift arrows my dear Oh, God in some heaven who's number is seventeen Dressed you in blue jeans this year To torment my soul Oh, leave me alone... Words and music by Bill Nelson.
