Black Diamond Bay

Up on the white veranda She wears a necktie and her Panama hat Her passport shows a face From another time and place She looks nothin' like that And all the remnants of her recent past Are scattered in the wild wind She walks across the marble floor Where a voice from the gambling room is callin' her to come on in She smiles, walks the other way As the last ship sails and the moon fades away From Black Diamond Bay As the mornin' light breaks open, the Greek comes down And he asks for a rope and a pen that will write "Pardon, monsieur," the desk clerk says, Carefully removes his fez "Am I hearin' you right?" And as the yellow fog is liftin' The Greek is quickly headin' for the second floor She passes him on the spiral staircase Thinkin' he's the Soviet Ambassador She starts to speak, but he walks away As the storm clouds rise and the palm branches sway On Black Diamond Bay A soldier sits beneath the fan Doin' business with a tiny man who sells him a ring Lightning strikes, the lights blow out The desk clerk wakes and begins to shout "Can you see anything?" Then the Greek appears on the second floor In his bare feet with a rope around his neck While a loser in the gambling room lights up a candle Says, "Open up another deck" But the dealer says, "Attendez-vous, s'il vous plait" As the rain beats down and the cranes fly away From Black Diamond Bay The desk clerk heard the woman laugh As he looked around in the aftermath and the soldier got tough He tried to grab the woman's hand Said, "Here's a ring, it cost a grand" She said, "That ain't enough" Then she ran upstairs to pack her bags While a horse-drawn taxi waited at the curb
