MONINA

Nathan Tinkham
Rhythm Range Music SOCAN

It's two in the morning
The sky's still bright
I came up from the south
And a tear was in my eye
All I ever wanted
Was just to play guitar
And now I do it every night
In this Dawson City bar

Monina, Monina
I'm feeling bad, I think it shows
And I am lost out on the road
Monina, Monina
She plays it cool, she's acting coy
She'll make a home for wayward boys

It's two floors up
Narrow stairs to my room
My window it is open
And the sun is shining through
I'm living here alone
But that don't bother me at all
I get all my bad news from
The pay phone down the hall

Chorus:

I am what's least expected
I can change the way you feel
I strike like summer lightning and
I travel on two wheels
And I might find you sleeping
And catch you off your guard
I'm just passing through your town
But I might pull up in your yard

Chorus:
