VERSE
D                                      Am
Standin at the airport lookin down the strip,
                  Am                      C7
She was cryin her eyes, she was bitin her lip
C7                         G
Seven-four-seven just left from gate eleven
            C7                            G
And there's no turnin round cos it's just leavin the ground
           Am                 Am     
And gettin higher (higher)    BREAK


VERSE
D                                      Am
Standin at the dock-side lookin out to sea
           Am                        C7
When I saw her but she did not see me
          C7                               G
There she stood with no hope because she'd missed the boat
           C7                            G
And as her dreams sailed away she headed back for the day,
            Am           Am                 
Back to the city (city)  BREAK


CHORUS
Gm            Am
 Night in the city, o-o-oh,
Gm          Am
 Madness at mid-mid-mid-midnight,
Gm             Am   Bb    C     D
  Night in the city drivin you insane

         Am
I waited for an hour, I never saw her face
      C7                          G
Crazy ladies that wait and slide around like a snake
             C7                     G
