Moriarty – Hanoï Blue

Listen

I found the song I had been looking for. A live version is on the second CD of the digibook limited edition of Gee Whiz but this Is a Lonesome Town. As I said before it is slow and sad. And majestic. Especially Arthur’s small dobro solo is phantastic. Here is what I think the lyrics are:

The first time we met in a poolroom bar
We were dressed both the same
We looked like twins
You knelt down and invited me to dance

We started to walk in the dark
And we danced in the night
We danced on the beach
We danced on the sand
We danced in the moonlight

Up to the North I was walking in the street
When a queer feeling started grabbing me
When I saw you coming up to me
Like a serendipity

And we danced on the street
We danced by the river
We danced on the bridge
We danced on the harbour

The last time I saw you
You were sitting on your suitcase
Waiting for the train
I was about to take

When we realized
We had the closest seats
We decided to dance on the train
