Here's another one that I posted to r.m.m.g.t. last night for the archives:

Because the Night - Words and Music by Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith

I'm lifting this straight out of Springsteen Complete...sounds much
better on piano/keyboard than solo guitar IMO, but here it is
anyway...all chords are either open (D,G,A,C) or barres near the nut

Intro: Bm, G, A, Bm, G, A, Bm


Bm      G          A         Bm
Take me now, baby, here as I am.
        G             A    Bm
Pull me close try and understand.
          G              A      Bm
Desire is hunger, is the fire I breathe.
          G          A        Bm
Love is a banquet on which we feed.
G       A            D    A
Come on now, try and understand
    Bm    G                     A
the way I feel when I'm in your hand.
D       G                A
Take my hand; come under cover.
     C                   Bm                  F#
They can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now.


Bm      G                 A
Because the night belongs to lovers.
Bm      G                 A  Bm
Because the night belongs to lust.
        G                 A
Because the night belongs to lovers.
Bm      G                 A  Bm
Because the night belongs to us.

Second verse:

Have I doubt when I'm alone?
Love is a ring on the telephone.
Love is an angel disguised as lust,
here in our bed until the morning comes.
Come on now, try and understand
the way I feel under your command.
Take my hand as the sun descends.
They can't touch you now, can't touch you now, can't touch you now.

Repeat chorus


     D    A         D          A                   Bm   A
With love we sleep; with doubt the viscious circle turn and turns.
D       A            Bm    A       D        A
Without you I cannot live, forgive the yearning, burning
    G     D        G
I believe in time, too real to feel,
   Bm            D             G              F#
so touch me now, touch me now, touch me now.

Repeat chorus and fade.

The chords are acurate, but the lyrics are not. Good Job just the same
