MAN WHO STAYED IN MONTEREY (Dennis Linde) Roger Miller - 1969 Dusty streets stare at me, lookin' like a daytime nightmare I should shave, try to save somethin' of the man that's still there Not much left to save of the man who stayed in Monterey The stucco stores, open doors, gape across this square and wonder As this man's trembling hands tilt the bag his bottle's under Things are looking gray for the man who stayed in Monterey Honey, darlin', sweetheart, precious angel, little dove The man you left is lookin' pretty grim Hypnotized and paralyzed and wine is my new love 'Cause it makes your mem'ry soft and dim Now I walk from the park, blearey-eyed and droopy shouldered Scuffy shoes floppin' loose, I know I'm looking tired and older One more empty day for the man who stayed in Monterey (Guitar Solo) Photographs in my lap, sparkling colors rush up to me >From the page, brown with age, all these things I keep are truly Flowers on the grave of the man who stayed in Monterey Flowers on the grave of the man who stayed in Monterey (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2011)
