I'M CHECKIN' OUT From the film "Postcards From The Edge" (1990) (Shel Silverstein) Meryl Streep & Blue Rodeo - 1990 John DePalma - 2002 Pull back them dark and dusty drapes And let in some light Tell the bell-boy come and get my trunk 'Cause I'm leavin' here tonight I packed my bags and paid my bill And I'm turnin' in my key And if those sad souls down in the lobby ask for me Just tell'em I'm checkin' out of this heartbreak hotel I ain't gonna live on lonely street no more (no more) I've found a new love and a new place to dwell Where teardrops ain't soakin' the floor So, take down my suitcase and hand me my hat I'm goin' from sleazy to swell. Give that desk-clerk a dime And you can just tell him that I'm Checkin' out of the heartbreak hotel Well, you can give that sad bellboy My old blues guitar 'Cause I'm only gonna sing them sweet songs From now on, yeah And you can tell that old bartender He might as well close down the bar Cause Chug-a-Luggin' Sally's packed an' gone Through that gray windowpane It always looked like rain But there's sunshine outside I can tell So open up that door, I'me leavin' An' I won't be back no more I'm checkin' out of this heartbreak hotel Checkin' out of this heartbreak hotel (Contributed by Jon - July 2004)
