Frankie Miller - Drunken Nights On The City
 
www.frankiemiller.net

Written for the late, great, Jimmy Johnstone.

From the Album,'The Rock'.

Verse1:
     C                                         
I'll tell you a story about a night on the town,
                            G
It started off drinking and fighting.
By the time a was through,
I'd near worn out my shoes,
                          C
I had visited every known dive.
All the lights in the alley,
Fall dim on the ground,  
                                 F
When your trying to see your way home.
And the all night ladies,
         C
In their perfume so fine,
G                     C
Wont leave a poor boy alone.

Break: C / F / C Cadd9 C //

Verse 2:
         C 
Well the paths of the gambler
Are kneeded too thin,
                                     G
When the cards are all spread on the floor.
The six and the seven,
I needed to win,
                                C
And you cant call the bluff any more.
So you stand to your feet,
And you figure discretly,
                             F
The best way to pay what you owe.
And she hands you a line,
          C
Tells you thanks for the time,
     G                                C
'You might have brought brains to the show.'

Chorus:
        F
Drunken nights on the city,
    C
Are showing their toes,
        F                         C
They'll take you for all that you owe.
    F
You cant judge a book,
        C
And you cant judge a crook,
G                             C
Down where the men, they cant go.

Break: C / F / C Cadd9 C //

Verse 3:
   C
By early the next morning,
I rose up to tight,
                           G
My eyes were as red as the light.
My pockets were empty,
And so was my heart,
                             C
And i promised to put things right.
So I went to the preacher,
I fell on my knees,
I asked the preacher,
                F
To right all my wrongs,
But he just shook his head,
           C
And looked sorry when he said,
       G                         C
'Youve been on the drink far too long'

Chorus x2 - fade.
