The Last Carnival (Springsteen Bruce)

Sundown, sundown They're taking all the tents down. Where have you gone my handsome Billy? Sundown, sundown The carnival train's leaving town. Where are ya now my darlin' Billy? We won't be dancing together on the high wire Facing the lines with you at my side, oh no. We won't be breathing the smoke in the fire On a midway. Hanging from the trapeze, my wrists waiting for your wrists. Two daredevils high upon the water's edge. You throwing the knife that lands inches from my head. Sundown. Moon rise, moon rise, the light that was in your eyes is 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 moving It's black smoke scorching the evening sky. A million stars shining above us like every soul living and dead Has been gathered together by God to sing a hymn Over the old bones. Sundown, sundown. They empty out the fairgrounds. Where are you now my handsome Billy?
