#stress on:
[C]Crazy Janey and her [Em]mission man[Em7]
   [D]back in the alley [Emtradin' hands[Em7]
`Long came [C]Wild Billy with his [em]friend G-man[Em7]
   [D]duded up for Saturday [Am]night
[C]Billy slammed on his [Emcoaster brakes[Em7]
   said any[D]body wanna go on up to [em]Greasy Lake[Em7]
It's about a [C]mile down on the dark side of [em]Route 88[Em7]
I got a [D]bottle of rose let's [Am]try it [am7]___[Am]
We'll pick [C]up Hazy Davy and [Am]Killer Joe
   I'll [D]take you all out to where the [Dsus2]gypsy angels go [D]
Built like light [Dsus2]
And they [D]dance like spirits in the [Emnight (all [Em7]night)
   all [D]night (all night)
Hey [Am]baby don't know what it do [Emto you[Em7]
Like a spirit in the [Em]night (all [Em7]night) all [D]night (all night)
Stand [Am]up now and let it shoot [Emthrough you

Well [C]Wild Billy was a [Emcrazy cat[Em7]
   he [D]shook some dust out of his [Emcoonskin cap[Em7]
Cried [C]"Trust some of this it'll [Emshow you where you're [Em7]at
  at [D]least it'll  help you really [Am]feel it" [am7]___[am]
By the [C]time we made it up to [Em]Greasy Lake[Em7]
   I had my [D]head out the window and Janey's [Emfingers in the [Em7]cake
I [C]think I really dug her I was [Emtoo hard to [Em7]fake
I said "I'm [D]hurt" she said "Honey let me [am]heal it"
And we [C]danced all night to a [am]soul fairy band
And she [D]kissed me just right like only a [Dsus2]lonely angel can [D]
Felt just right [Dsus2] just as [D]sweet as a
   spirit in the [Emnight (all [Em7]night)
All [D]night (all night) hey [am]baby don't know what it do [em]to you
Like a spirit in the night (all [Em7]night) all [D]night (all night)
Stand [am]up now and let it shoot [em]through you

[Am]Huh huh... [Emhuh
[Am]Huh huh... [Emhuh

Now the [C]night grew bright the [Em]stars threw [Em7]light on [D]Billy and Davy
   [Em]Dancin' in the moon[Em7]light
They were [C]down near the water in a [Emstone mud fight[Em7]
Killer [D]Joe'd passed out on the [Am]lawn
[C]Hazy Davy he got [em]really hurt[Em7]
   he [D]crawled into the lake in just his [Emsocks and a shirt[Em7]
[C]Me and Crazy Janey were makin' [Emlove in the dirt
   [D]singin' our birthday [Am]songs
[C]Janey said "It was [Am]time we go"
So we [D]closed our eyes and said goodbye to [Dsus2]gypsy angel row [D]
   felt so right [Dsus2]
Together we [D]moved like spirits in the [Emnight (all [Em7]night)
   all [D]night (all night)
Oh [am]baby don't know what it do [Emto you[Em7]
Like a spirit in the [Emnight (all [Em7]night) all [D]night (all night)
Stand [Am]up now and let it shoot [Emthrough you[Em7]
Like spirits in the night (all night) all [D]night (all night)
   all [Am]night (all night) all [Emnight (all [Em7]night)
   all night (all night) all [D]night (all night)
   [Am]Huh huh... [Emhuh
