    I Can Name That Tune in ... ???

    I'll give you some lyrics of a classic tune from yesteryear(you know, back when music was good) and you tell me the name of the tune. If you know it , feel free to NAME THAT TUNE. Only answer if you know it off the top of your head.
    No googling the answer, please.

    On a morning from a Bogart movie
    In a country where they turn back time
    You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre
    Contemplating a crime

    She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running
    Like a watercolor in the rain
    Don't bother asking for explanations
    She'll just tell you that she came...

    ... What a tale my thoughts could tell
    Just like an old time movie
    About a ghost from a wishing well
    In a castle dark or a fortress strong
    With chains upon my feet
    You know that ghost is me
    And I will never be set free
    As long as I'm a ghost you can

    Got out of town on a boat goin' to Southern Islands
    Sailing a reach before a followin' sea
    She was makin' for the trades on the outside
    And the downhill run to Papeete

    Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas
    We got eighty feet of the waterline nicely making way
    In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you
    But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away

    Well, I went home with the waitress
    The way I always do
    How was I to know
    She was with the Russians, too

    I was gambling in Havana
    I took a little risk

    I doubt there's a song from the 50's through the '90's I could stump you with. You're the best when it comes to old movies/songs. Simply the best!!!

    She said she's married her an architect
    Who kept her warm and safe and dry
    She would have liked to say she loved the man
    But she didn't like to lie

    I said the years had been a friend to her
    And that her eyes were still as blue
    But in those eyes I wasn't sure if I saw
    Doubt or gratitude
    ...
    The beer was empty and our tongues were tired
    And running out of things to say
    She gave a kiss to me as I got out
    And I watched her drive away

    Just for a moment I was back at school
    And felt that old familiar pain
    And, as I turned to make my way back home
    The snow turned into rain

    One pill makes you larger
    And one pill makes you small
    And the ones that mother gives you
    Don't do anything at all
    Go ask Alice when she's ten feet tall
    ...

    When men on the chessboard
    Get up and tell you where to go
    And you've just had some kind of mushroom
    And your mind is moving slow
    Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

    7. One of SF's all-time fave's...

    Love of two is one
    Here but now they're gone
    Came the last night of sadness
    And it was clear she couldn't go on

    Then the door was open and the wind appeared
    The candles blew then disappeared
    The curtains flew then he appeared, saying don't be afraid
