Night Owl by Gerry Rafferty

This is the original key, B

Intro F♯ strumming playing E F and then F♯ on the 6th (lower) string

F#          B                    F#
Night time comes and finds you alone
                            E
In a space and time of your own
         G#m                      D#m E 
Lost in dreams in a world full of shadows

E        B                      F#
Down the street the neon light shines
                                E
Offering refuge and hope to the blind
            G#m                      D#m E  
You stumble in with no thought of tomorrow

Chorus 
      B                          F#       E
Yes I get a little lonely when the sun gets low
      B                      F#       E
And I end up looking for somewhere to go
      B                        F#      E
Yes I should know better but I can’t say no
E        F#
Oh no no no no nono no

              B                     F#  
The lights are low and the music is loud
                                      E
You watch yourself as you play to the crowd
         G#m                    D#m E  
One more face in a palace of mirrors
         B                  F# 
One more drink your sailing away
                               E 
One more dream but it’s looking okay
         G#m                           D#m E  
One more time to watch the flow of the river

Yes I get a little lonely when the sun gets low
And I end up looking for somewhere to go
Yes I should know better but I can’t say no
Oh no no no no no no no no no no

Instr.

Yes I get a little lonely when the sun gets low
And I end up looking for somewhere to go
Yes I should know better but I can’t say no
Oh no no Oh no no no No no no no no no no no no no

               B                       F#
You’ve seen it all yeah you’ve seen it before
                                   E                            
Like a fool you always come back for more 
              G#m                         D#m E
You live your life like there was no more tomorrow
           B                   F#
Night time comes and finds you alone 
                            E
In a space and time of your own
        G#m                  D#m E
Lost in dreams in a world of shadows

Yes I get a little lonely when the sun gets low
And I end up looking for somewhere to go
Yes I should know better but I can’t say no
Oh no no Oh no no no No no no no no no no no no no

Thanks - Gerry Rafferty was a great talent an a sad loss.
Just submitted "Someday" from the JJ Cale tribute album by Clapton and Friends. Some great tracks.
