Showdown – Electric Light Orchestra, from 1973’s On The Third Day
Written by Jeff Lynne.
I’m not sure about the lyrics in the fade-out. If anyone has any idea, let me know.
Also not 100% sure if there's a chord change after Gm7 in the chorus.

[Intro]
Gm7       Cm

[Verse 1]
    Cm
She cried to the southern wind
        Gm7
About a love that was sure to end
      Fm           
Every dream in her heart was gone
              Cm
Headin' for a Showdown

[Verse 2]
Cm
Bad dreamer, what's your name
                 Gm7
Looks like we're ridin' on the same train
         Fm
Looks as though there'll be more pain
                   Cm          
There's gonna be a Showdown


[Chorus]
         Gm                   Fm
And it's rainin' all over the world
     Gm          F#m      Fm
It's raining all over the world
Gm7                  Cm
Tonight, the longest night


[Verse 3]
    Cm
She came to me like a friend
    Gm7
She blew in on a southern wind
       Fm
Now my heart has turned to stone again
                   Cm
There's gonna be a Showdown

[Verse 4]
Cm          Gm7
Save me, oh save me
Fm
It's unreal, the suffering
                   Cm
There's gonna be a Showdown

[Chorus]
         Gm                   Fm
And it's rainin' all over the world
     Gm          F#m      Fm
It's raining all over the world
Gm7                  Cm
Tonight, the longest night

[Solo]
Cm7     Gm     Fm      Cm

Raining, raining

[Chorus]
Gm                   Fm
Rainin' all over the world
     Gm          F#m      Fm
It's raining all over the world
Gm7                  Cm
         the longest night

Gm                   Fm
And it's rainin' all over the world
     Gm          F#m      Fm
It's raining all over the world
Gm7                  Cm
Tonight, the longest night
