Charlie McGettigan - Bed For The Night


CAPO: 5th Fret



[Intro]
C  Em  F  G  C  Em  F  G

[Verse 1]
       C               Em            F       G     C
He was standing on the corner as the sun was going down
               G/B   Am      C       Dm              G
He was looking for a contact, he had just arrived in town
         C                Em             F           G        Am
With his suitcase full of emptiness, his clothes are torn and tight
G      F       C     F  G        C       G
He was looking for a bed for the night


[Verse 2]
       C             Em               F           G      C
And he had a list of numbers that had slipped out of his head
         G/B      Am        C      Dm             G
An uncle lived in somewhere out in Manchester, he said
       C             Em                F       G      Am
He had come out of a country where the tunnels had no light 
G      F       C     F  G        C       G
He was looking for a bed for the night


[Chorus]
       C           Em
Just a bed for the night
          F             G       Am
Somewhere warm till the morning light
G      F       C     F  G        C      Em  F  G
He was looking for a bed for the night


[Verse 3]
    C               Em            F      G          C
And standing in the doorway was a man called Father John
                  G/B      Am       C       Dm                  G
He said, "Come in from the cold and sit you down there, my good man"
        C                 Em               F       G     Am
And the small talk was of football and the tea tasted so right
    G      F       C     F  G        C       G
And he was looking for a bed for the night


[Chorus]
       C           Em
Just a bed for the night
          F             G       Am
Somewhere warm till the morning light
G      F       C     F  G        C      Em  F  G
He was looking for a bed for the night


[Instrumental]
C  Em  F  G  C  Em  F  G


[Verse 4]
          C                 Em       F        G  C
There was something in this situation made me realize
              G/B    Am      C      Dm                G
That there is always someone with a kindness in their eyes
       C                  Em           F          G       Am
So, if Father John should hear me, and who knows, he just might
     G        F          C       F  G        C       G
Hear me say, "Thank you, for the bed for the night"


[Chorus]
       C           Em
Just a bed for the night
          F             G       Am
Somewhere warm till the morning light
G      F       C     F  G        C      G
He was looking for a bed for the night


[Chorus]
       C           Em
Just a bed for the night
          F             G       Am
Somewhere warm till the morning light
G      F       C     F  G        C      Em  F  G
He was looking for a bed for the night
       C   Em           F      G   C
Just a bed_____ for the night
