Don't Turn out the Light
by Robert Earl Keen Jr.

Intro:

D               G
Scarecrow and a yellow moon
      D                A7      D
and a roadhouse on the edge of town.
D                  G
Hear that midnight rooster crow
          D             A7
well I'll have one more before I go
    G                         D
but Honey, don't turn out the light
         A7               G             D
'cause I think I'm in the mood for love tonight


The night is cool beneath the stars
ridin' home in John's old car
got my head out in the wind
here I am drunked up again
but Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think I'm in the mood for love tonight


Me and John in a pickup truck
bottle of gin and a paper cup
Runnin' wild and livin' hard
I passed out in our front yard
but Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think I'm in the mood for love tonight


Instrumental


The moon is high, the sun is down
Honey came out in her night gown
On the porch at a quarter to three
talkin' to the deputy sherrif and me
but Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think I'm in the mood for love tonight

I said Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think i'm in the mood for love tonight
I said Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think i'm in the mood for love tonight



This song has a really great instrumental intro:

  D             G                 A7       D       G                 A7
