    B7        C#m      G#m         D#m
The Edison Museum, not open to the public
    B7             C#m    G#m           D#m
Its haunted towers rise into the clouds above it
G#m                 C#m
Folks drive in from out of town
   D#m                         G#m
To gaze in amazement when they see it

B                 E     B                E 
Just outside the gate I look into the courtyard
B      E                 B      E
Underneath the gathering thunderstorm
B                E       B                E 
Through the iron bars, I see the Black Mariah
  B       E             D#m G#m
Revolving slowly on its platform
F#             B        C#m   D#m   G#m
In the topmost tower, a light burns dim
  F#      B        C#m  D#m     G#m
A coiling filament glowing within

The Edison Museum, once a bustling factory
Today is but a darkened, cobweb covered hive of industry
The tallest, widest and most famous haunted mansion in New Jersey

Behind a wooden door, the voice of Thomas Alva
Recites a poem on a phonograph
Ghosts float up the stair, like silent moving pictures
The loyal phantoms of his in-house staff
A wondrous place it is, there can be no doubt
But no one ever goes in, and no one ever goes out

So when your children quarrel and nothing seems to quell them 
Tell them that you'll take them to the Edison Museum 
The largest independently owned and operated mausoleum
