Verse 1:
A         G             D             Em
I see him standing silhouetted in the lamp light,
A         G             D           Em
I cross the street and I quicken my pace.
A           G             D            Em
He cups his hands and he lights a cigarette,
A           G        Em           F      G
I find myself in the bones of his face.  Ah, ha.

Chorus:
C             G           Dm
It's just the night in my veins,
Em                               F
Oh, oh... making me crawl in the dust again.
C             G     Dm              G
It's just the night under my skin, slipping it in.


Verse 2:
G        F               G        C             Am        G
He's got his hands in my hair and his lips everywhere, Oh yeah, 
F        G     C    Am
It feels good, it's alright.
G            F        G           C     Am
Even if it's just the night in my veins.

Middle Riff (Repeat):
A  G  D  Em  ...Oh, oh!
A  G  D  Em
A  G  D  Em


Verse 3:
A              G           D         Em
He's got me up against the back of a pickup truck,
A      G            D    Em
Out of sight of the neon glare.
A           G            D               Em
We might as well be on a beach under the moonlight,
A               G         Em      F                G
Love's language reads the same anywhere, ah, ha ...yeah.

Chorus (Repeat):
C             G           Dm
It's just the night in my veins,
Em                            F
Oh, ow making me crawl in the dust again.
C             G     Dm              G
It's just the night under my skin, slipping it in.


Verse 4:
G        F               G             C   Am              G
He's got his chest on my back across a new Cadillac, ...Oh yeah,
F        G     C    Am
It feels good, it's alright,
G            F        G           C     Am
Even if it's just the night in my veins,
G            F        G           C     Am
Even if it's just the night in my veins.


Middle Riff (Repeat with Solo):
A  G  D  Em

A  G  D  Em (long sustain)


Verse 5:
G        F               G               C       Am            G
I've got my head on the curb and I can't produce a word, ...Oh yeah, 
F        G     C      Am
It feels good, ... so right.
G            F        G           C     Am
Even if it's just the night in my veins,
F                 G     C      Am
Oh yeah, it feels good, ... so right,...baby
G            F        G           C     Am
Even if it's just the night in my veins.


Refrain:
G            F        G           C     Am
Even if it's just the night in my veins.
G            F        G           C     Am
Even if it's just the night in my veins. (Go!)

Middle Riff (Repeat with Lead):
A  G  D  Em
A  G  D  Em
A  G  D  Em


Outro:
G        F      G   C  Am
It feels good, ...  so right
G            F        G           C     Am
Even if it's just the night in my veins.
G            F        G           C     Am
Even if it's just the night in my veins.
(Ok, Last Time!)
G            F        G           C     Am
Even if it's just the night in my veins.

(Thank You.  Good Night!)

FOOTNOTES: 
1. This video from 1995 is also worth reviewing as Chrissie mimes the the key song 
elements.  It's very tongue-in-cheek:
