Subject: CRD: It's Late - Ricky Nelson

     It's Late
     [Dorsey Burnette]
     Recorded by Ricky Nelson on `Ricky Sings Again', Imperial LP 9061

     Notes: Song is in G#. Capo at the fourth fret and play in E as

     Intro: Strum E chord w/lead guitar.

     Verse I:

     It's Late [it's late]
               A      E
     We gotta get on home
     It's late [it's late]
              B7       E
     We been gone too long
     Too bad [too bad]
                 A           E
     We shoulda checked our time
     Can't phone [can't phone]
     We done spent every dime

     Verse II:

     It's late [it's late]
     We're `bout to run outta gas
     It's late [it's late]
     We gotta get home fast
     Can't speed [can't speed]
     We're in a slow down zone
            E                      B7          E
     Baby, look at that clock why can't it be wrong


            A                     E
     If we coulda left home by a quarter to nine
      B7                 E
     Woulda had fun and plenty of time
      A                    E
     We got started just a little bit late
      F#                 B7
     Hope this won't be our last date

     Verse III:

     Look up [look up]
     Is that the moon we see?
     Can't be [can't be]
     Looks like the sun to me
     It's late [it's late]
     I hate to face your dad
     Too bad [too bad]
     I know he's gonna be mad

     It's late [it's late]
     We gotta get on home
     It's late [it's late]
     We been gone too long

     [Instrumental break over verse chords]
     [Repeat verse II]

     If we coulda left home by a quarter to nine
     We woulda had fun and plenty of time
     We got started just a little bit late [doo-wop]
     Hope this won't be our last date

     Repeat Verse III, stretch out last line w/lead guitar.

     So simple, but Ricky's wide-eyed delivery and his crack band both
     sound great. Do not play the leads with anything but a Telecaster.
