From the album Rodeo Rose. Chords above lyrics.

    G          D                G            D
The dancer she sways 'neath the light on the corner,
D   Em             D               G             D
Her partner is the shadow now that glides at her feet.
G          D            G            D
Slowly she moves to her sweet silent music;
D   Em             C            D             G
The people pass her by and hurry down along the street.

The singer he stands in the warmth of the doorway;
The song that he plays brings a tear to an eye,
And his smile brings a nod, and the toss of a quarter;
Another cup of coffee, a downtown subway ride.

Ch: C          D
    Lovers and losers,
    G            Em
    Dreamers and boozers,
    C          D            G
    Pickers and poets in the rain.
    G         D
    I long to hear them,
    D   G          D
    And I'll linger near them,
    D   Em                C
    For I have seen their faces
    C   D                  Em
    And I have known their names.

The sun plays a game with the tops of the mountains,
The shapes and the colors change and fade with the day.
The cowboy he sings in the cool of the evening
Some old-fashioned love song in an old and simple way.

A lover she stares at the one of her loving,
As warm and as pretty as the colors in the wine.
She listens while he tells her of the joys in his keeping;
She offers him a rose to touch and hold forever fine.

From the 1981 album Rodeo Rose.
