Stan Ridgway — susie before sunrise lyrics

The page contains the lyrics of the song "susie before sunrise" by Stan Ridgway.

Lyrics

Here where the carousel spins
On an ocean of blame
We pick pockets in the crowds
Near the gold mines of shame
And I will wear a red ruby ring
That reflects the full moon
Meet me on the corner tonight
And we’ll sleep deep down in the sand dunes
Susie climbed a mountain of tacks
She lost control of the facts
She put all of the clothes in a brown paper sack
And drove outta state the next day before sunrise
Before sunrise
Susie climbed a mountain of tacks
Walkin' by the old funzone1
South of the gutter of doubt
Past a broken mirror glass
The reflection faded in and out
And I saw her there
Chorus repeat x3
