Palisades Park

Chords and lyrics for Palisades Park by Freddy Cannon

G# 
Last night I took a walk after dark
Fm 
A swingin’ place called Palisades Park
C# 
To have some fun and see what I could
D#

I took a ride on a shoot-the-chute
Fm 
That girl I sat beside was awful cute
C# 
And after while she was holdin’ hands with
D# 
me
 
C# 
up like a rocket ship
Fm 
Down like a roller coaster
C# 
Back like a loop-the-loop
 
And a
D# 
round like a merry-go-round
 
G# 
We ate and ate at a hot dog stand
Fm 
We danced around to a rockin’ band
C# 
And when I could, I gave that girl a
D# 
hug
 
C# 
You’ll never know how great a kiss can feel
 
When you  
Fm 
stop at the top of a Ferris wheel
 
When I

fell in lov
 
e down at Palisades Park
