Joan Baez - The Song At The End Of The Movie Lyrics

This is the song at the end of the movie
When the house lights go on
The people go home
The plot's been resolved
It's all over

This is the day after the last sad goodbye
That took so long
My true love is gone
He's left me alone
We're all over

I am the girl with her face in her hands
Crying love forsaken
I'm left badly shaken

This is the letter he left on the stairwell
That seemed so unreal
With words that could kill
I'll send you the bill
when it's over

This is the song at the end of the movie
When the house lights go on
The people go home
The plot's been resolved
It's all over
All over

  3. Pierce Pettis

    my friends from college & I played on this track (recorded in Muscle Shoals) ... Joan was gracious and very funny, as I recall ...


    You also wrote it and are too modest to say as much. Fantastic song!

    John McArthur

    Great song, Pierce. Who was your violin player on this? He sat in one night when I was playing at Freebird Pub in Tampa, FL.

    Doyle Darby

    A lady in tampa said that she was a friend of Joan baez. She gave me a check for 50 dollars to make a demo of an original song of mine. She was very drunk. I didn't believe her. I never cashed it. I was singing at dino' s Pizza near usf. I went to the firebird pub. Heard a duo there. Guitar and viola. They did this song. The guitarist said he wrote it. Years later I saw it on a Joan baez album. also a teenager from the middle East named rami el-batrowi heard me at dino's & said he wanted to manage me. I didn't believe it. He is now a multi-milionare business man. I've had a good life but it could been a lot better. Singer,guitarist, butch Darby from tampa florida.

    PS--thematically--see a Taiwan-ese film set in a closing movie theater--LAST DAYS OF DRAGON INN--wonderful!

    This song was written by Pierce Pettis, a singer-songwriter best-known to other musicians.  I heard him do this live once.  It stays in my mind--I've been going to movies by myself for years now.  He has a page on Wikipedia.
