There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
by The Smiths

Transcribed by John S. Jacob (jsjacob@soda.berkeley.edu)

  The lyrics are right out of the insert to "The Smiths I Best..."
  Yes, the chords sound picked, but I prefer to pound out (strum)
  the chords and sing along. I mean, aren't these lyrics so
  uplifting?! ;-)

  As for rhythm, I always say go find a recording -- it's much
  easier than trying to get it from a transcription (or to put
  it into one, for that matter...)

##Capo up to the fourth fret 
(This song is really in the key of E).


[Intro]
  Am F G

[Verse]
Am G       Am G   F    C G
   Take me out tonight
              Am                G
where there's music and there's people
        Am        G F  C G
who are young and alive

Am      G       Am  G
Driving in your car
  F                      C
I never never want to go home
G                 Am      G Am G
because I haven't got one
   F    C G
anymore

[Verse 2]
Am G       Am G   F    C G
   Take me out tonight
          Am          G
because I want to see people and I
Am          G      F C G
want to see lights

Am      G       Am  G
Driving in your car
   F                    C
oh please don't drop me home
G                Am            G
because it's not my home, it's their
              Am         G     F C G
home, and I'm welcome no more

[Chorus]
  Em F

  G        C             Am
  And if a double-decker bus
  F               G
  crashes into us
            C
  to die by your side
         F               G
  such a heavenly way to die

           C         Am
  And if a ten ton truck
  F                    G
  kills the both of us
            C
  to die by your side
      F                         G
  the pleasure the privilege is mine

[Verse 3]
Am G       Am G   F    C G
   Take me out tonight
           Am                G    Am G F C G
oh take me anywhere, I don't care
           Am       G    Am
And in the darkened underpass
  G          F                               C G
I thought Oh God, my chance has come at last
            Am           G
(but then a strange fear gripped me and I
Am            G    F C G
just couldn't ask)

[Verse 4]
Am G       Am G   F    C G
   Take me out tonight
        Am                G    Am G F C G
take me anywhere, I don't care

     Am      G       Am  G
Just driving in your car
  F                      C
I never never want to go home
G                 Am      G Am G
because I haven't got one
          F       C G
I haven't got one

[Chorus]
  Em F

  G        C             Am
  And if a double-decker bus
  F               G
  crashes into us
            C
  to die by your side
         F               G
  such a heavenly way to die

           C         Am
  And if a ten ton truck
  F                    G
  kills the both of us
            C
  to die by your side
      F                         G
  the pleasure the privilege is mine

[Outro]
Am         G            Am         G
There is a light and it never goes out
F                       C          G
There is a light and it never goes out
