Em
As you brush your shoes
                     G   (G6)
And stand before the mirror
                  Em
And you comb your hair
                       G  (G6)
And grab your coat and hat
        Em
And you walk, wet streets
            G  (G6)
Tryin' to remember
        C
All the wild night breezes
D              G
In your mem'ry ever

         Em                 C
And ev'rything looks so complete
            Em                 C
When you're walkin' out on the street
        Em                C
And the wind catches your feet
              D
And sends you flyin', cryin'

Em
Oooooooooooooo - wee
         D        G
The wild night is calling, alright
Em
Oooooooooooooo - wee
         D        G
The wild night is calling.


And all the girls walk by
Dressed up for each other
And the boys do the boobie-woogie
On the corner of the street
And the people passin' by
Just stare in wild wonder
And inside the juke-box
Roars out just like thunder.

Ooooh - wee
The wild night is calling
The wild night is calling
Come on out and dance
Come on out and make romance...

And you walk west streets trying to remember
         C                  D               G G/C G G/C G (n.c.)
All the wild night breezes in your memory ever

CHORUS:
          Em               C
And everything looks so complete
             Em                  C
When you're walking out on the street
          Em                C                  D       D7
And the wind catches your feet and sends you flying, crying

Dooo oooh wee, wild night is calling
Em C  D   Em    C    D         G
Dooo oooh wee, wild night is calling

All the girls walk by, dressed up for each other
And the boys do the boogie woogie on the corner of the street
And the people passin' by stare in wide wonder
And the inside jukebox blows out just like thunder
CHORUS

BRIDGE:
     Em                      G   (G/C G G/C G)
The wi--------ld night is calling
     Em                      G   (G/C G G/C G)
The wi--------ld night is calling
                   Em  Em(VII)            G
I'm going out and dance, come on out and make romance
                 Em      D                 G
Come on out and dance, come on out, make romance (yes indeed)

SOLO (over first two lines of verse)
REPEAT BRIDGE


Em: 0 2 2 0 0 0  Em(VII): 7 7 9 9 8 7   G/C: 3 x 2 0 1 3


NOTE: Listen to the record to get a better idea.  I lamely tried to show
how one can use G and G/C to a rhythm much like a blues choogle.

I know this isn't really a guitar type song, but it sounds okay I think
(hey, think Cake & Gloria G)

	    Bm
     As you brush your shoes
     			  D
     And stand before the mirror
	     Bm
     And you comb your hair
			    D
     And grab your coat and hat
	     Bm
     And you walk, wet streets
		  D
     Tryin' to remember
	      G
     All the wild breezes
     A			D
     In your mem'ry ever.
		Bm		  G
     And ev'rything looks so complete
		  Bm		    G
     When you're walkin' out on the street
	     Bm			G
     And the wind catches your feet

     And sends you flyin', cryin'
     Bm     G    A    D
     Ooh-wee!
          A 	 	Bm
     The wild night is calling.

     The wild night is calling

     The wild night is calling

     Come on out and dance

     Come on out and make romance....

The first and second versions here are fairly accurate but the last one is not accurate to the recording.
