Here's the version of Dark End of the Street that I've got - learned it from
a Percy Sledge recording though, not the Commitments soundtrack.

Dark End of the Street

         G      F#min   Emin
At the dark end of the street
         G      F#min   Emin
That's where we'd always meet
             G             C        G
Hiding in shadows where we don't belong
               C       D        G
Living in darkness to hide our wrong
C       G            C      D       G
You and me, at the dark end of the street
C       G
You and me

             G           F#min     Emin
I know that time's gonna take it's toll
             G                 F#min        Emin
We've got to give back all the love that we stole
        G          C         G
It's a sin and we know it's wrong
           C          D         G
Oh but our love keeps coming on strong
C     G             C       D      G
Steal away, to the dark end of the street
C     G

        G
They're going to find us
        F#min
They're going to find us
        Emin
They're going to find us
C        G
Oh someday
C       G           C       D      G
You and me, at the dark end of the street
C       G
You and me

              G#       Gmin      Fmin
And when the daylight time comes around
          G#        Gmin     Fmin
And if by chance we walk downtown
              G#        C#       G#
If you should see me just walk on by
     C#             D#    G#
But darling, please don't cry
C#            G#           C#       D#     G#
Tonight we'll meet, at the dark end of the street
C#      G#


I usually don't do the key change for the final verse, but it was there in
the original so I thought I'd include it for the purists in the bunch.  BTW,
the lyrics may be a little screwy, my favourite version of this tune was
recorded by Richard Thompson and my memory of the words may include some of
his own idiosyncratic choices.

That first line should be G D/F# Em...and so on through the song. It's easier if you put it in C - that line then being C G/B Am
