John Mellencamp
Lonely Ol' Night

I watched John play it this way solo on TV (accoutic)

Play around with the D chords at the end of the lines.  John was lifting his fingers 
the first and third strings on the D chord.


D                         G                       D
She calls me up and says "Baby, it's a lonely ol' night"
D                         G                     D
I don't know, I'm just so scared and lonely all at the same time
G                     C                   G
Nobody told us it was gonna work out this way
      C
No no no no no
D                      G                      D
I guess they knew we'd work it out in our own way

C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
C            G
Can I put my arms around you?
C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
D               G                      D
Custom made for two lonely people like me and you

D             G                    D
Radio playing softly some singer's sad, sad song
D                                G
He's singin about stanin' in the shadows of love
                 D
I guess he feels awfully alone
G                C               G
She says "I know exactly what he means
          C
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah"
D                    G                                   D
And it's a sad, sad, feelin' when you're livin' on those in betweens,

C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
C            G
Can I put my arms around you?
C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
D               G               D
Custom made for two people like me and you

D                  G                   D
She calls me baby, She calls everybody baby
D                 G                     D
It's a lonely ol' night, but ain't they all?

C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
C            G
Can I put my arms around you?
C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
D               G               D
Custom made for two people like me and you

D         Ddim   D
Yeah like me and you
D         Ddim   D
Yeah like me and you

You have the wrong tab here. The other version of this tab that is posted here is correct. The song begins in E...just
listen to it.... no way it starts on a D chord unless of course you have your guitar dropped down like 2 octaves or
something crazy.

I like it and play around with the D as you say. I play it on capo 2, Suits my voice and its easy. Sounds ok to me and my friends when we're singing it. Nice one.
