Night Moves

G                                                  F
I was a little too tall, coulda' used a few pounds
C                                   F
tight pants, points, hardly reknown
G                                                 F
She was a black haired beauty with big dark eyes
C                                         G
and points all her own sittin' way up high.......
F     C                     F
......way up firm and high
G                                                  F
Out past the cornfields, where the woods got heavy
C                                     F
out in the backseat of my sixty Chevy
G                                     F   C
workin on mysteries without any clues
        D      Em             D    C
Working on our night moves
          D        Em              D         C
Tryin' to make some front page drive-in news
         D     Em           D
Practicin' our night moves.........
C  G                    F  C  F the summertime
G                              F         C   F
  in the sweet, summertime, summertime
G                                       F
We weren't in love, oh no, far from it
C                                                   F
We weren't searching for some pie-in-the-sky summit
G                                        F
We were just young and restless and bored,
C                      F
living by the sword
G                                          F
and we'd steal away every chance we could
C                                                F
to the back room, the alley, or the trusty woods
G                                              F
I used her, she used me but neither one cared
We were getting our share

        D      Em           D
practicing our night moves

C              D      Em           D
   tryin' to lose the awkward teenage blues

C          D     Em           D
   workin on our night moves

C   G   F   C   F   G   F   C   D  Em   D   G  G7

and ohhhhh...............

   G       Cmaj7
I  wonder         hey, we felt the lightening .

F                             D                         G
And we waited on the thunder,     waited on the thunder

I woke last night to the sound of thunder

"How far off" I sat and wondered,

started humming a song from 1962

Cmaj7                         Em
       Ain't it funny how the night moves

C                     Em                C
We just don't seem to have as much to lose

Strange how the night moves

C        Cmaj7            G
     with autumn closing in

G              F     C            F
night moves..........night moves........(repeat and fade)
