Tweeter and the Monkey Man - chords, tab and comments

At the bottom you'll find a link to the complete lyrics.

From the 1988 album "Traveling Wilburys Vol.1", featuring Charlie T. Jr. Wilbury (Tom Petty), Lefty Wilbury (Roy Orbison), Lucky Wilbury (Bob Dylan), Otis Wilbury (Jeff Lynne), and Nelson Wilbury (George Harrison). A stunt with the Wilbury project, is that all songs were credited everybody. This song telling the story of two drug dealers are obviously mainly Dylan, with assistanse of Petty. It contains a lot of references to Bruce Springsteens life and music, and is the only song in this album without any sign of Orbison, though he was still alive at recording time, I believe.
Am                                G
Tweeter and the Monkey Man were hard up for cash
      F                            Am
they stayed up all night selling cocaine and hash
to an undercover cop who had a sister named Jan
     F                       Am
for reasons unexplained she loved the Monkey Man
Am                                   G
Tweeter was a boy scout before she went to Vietnam
     F                         Am
and found out the hard way  nobody gives a damn
they knew that they found freedom just across that Jersey line
         F                             Am
so they hopped into a stolen car took Highway 99

Am                        Em
and the walls came down   all the way to hell
never saw them when their standing
never saw them when they fell
