     D           A         G            A
Come people pay attention, listen to my song

There's only ninety verses, I'll not detain you long
    G            Bm                A          Bm        G
How Uncle Sam he blew a fuse which caused the lights to fail

And plunged the nation into gloom, come listen to my tale


Chorus:
      G             A           D7        G
From Alaska down to Panama, Hawaii to New York

Ten people out of nine agree it's better in the dark

D                                     A         D
John Citizen came home from work like any other night
          Bm            A             G             A
Found his house in semi-darkness, his wife all in a fright
G               Bm                A    Bm     G
John, John, the power's gone, the TV's up the spout
    D                    A                 G        A      D
But John just pulled his trousers down and blew the candle out

D                                     A         D
When things go wrong, this proves to all the world - if proof were wanted
          Bm            A             G             A
Mankind reverts to type, carries on undaunted
G               Bm                A    Bm     G
As they lay there struggling and breathless on the floor
    D                    A            G          A      D
She murmured, John, how come we never thought of this before


Chorus:
      G             A           D7        G
From Alaska down to Panama, Hawaii to New York

Ten people out of nine agree it's better in the dark

Verse 4:
D                                     A         D
But nine long months have passed and gone and there's a bill to pay
          Bm            A             G             A
Doctor Kildare and all his men are working night and day
G               Bm                A    Bm     G
Love, they say, is a costly game and must be properly planned
    D                    A            G          A      D
But a packet of three is hard to see when darkness rules the land


Chorus:
      G             A           D7        G
From Alaska down to Panama, Hawaii to New York
    D             A               D      A      D
Ten people out of nine agree it's better in the dark

          Bm            A             G             A
For longer darker power cuts, he wants them every night
G               Bm                A    Bm     G
He won't go off to war, he has a better plan instead
    D                    A                G          A      D
For out of darkness comes the light, he'd rather go back to bed


Chorus:
      G             A           D7        G
From Alaska down to Panama, Hawaii to New York

Ten people out of nine agree it's better in the dark

Hi, Great Tab!

A few minor corrections:

In the chorus, I think the last line is D-A-G-A-D, not D-A-D-A-D.
I'm not convinced it's a D7, think it might just be a D
I don't think the interlude walks back up i.e., D-D/C#-D/B-D/A, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Love tab and the song.

Thanks for tabbing it out.

It may be a difference based on the version, or I may've heard the wrong chord, but I'm pretty sure it was a 7th it finished on.
