Em
As you brush your shoes
                     G   (G6)
And stand before the mirror
                  Em
And you comb your hair
                       G  (G6)
And grab your coat and hat
        Em
And you walk, wet streets
            G  (G6)
Tryin' to remember
        C
All the wild night breezes
D              G
In your mem'ry ever

         Em                 C
And ev'rything looks so complete
            Em                 C
When you're walkin' out on the street
        Em                C
And the wind catches your feet
              D
And sends you flyin', cryin'

Em
Oooooooooooooo - wee
         D        G
The wild night is calling, alright
Em
Oooooooooooooo - wee
         D        G
The wild night is calling.


And all the girls walk by
Dressed up for each other
And the boys do the boobie-woogie
On the corner of the street
And the people passin' by
Just stare in wild wonder
And inside the juke-box
Roars out just like thunder.

Ooooh - wee
The wild night is calling
The wild night is calling
Come on out and dance
Come on out and make romance...




WILD NIGHT - Van Morrison

Em Em(VII) G  G/C  G  G/C  G  G/C  G  (rpt)

          Em                Em(VII)           G  G/C G G/C G G/C G
Then you brush your shoes, smile before the mirror
         Em            Em(VII)                G  G/C G G/C G G/C G
And you comb your hair, grab your comb and laugh
         Em               Em(VII)      G    G/C  G Em
And you walk west streets trying to remember
         C                  D               G G/C G G/C G (n.c.)
All the wild night breezes in your memory ever


[Chorus]
          Em               C
And everything looks so complete
             Em                  C
When you're walking out on the street
          Em                C                  D       D7
And the wind catches your feet and sends you flying, crying
Em C  D   Em    C    D         G
Dooo oooh wee, wild night is calling
Em C  D   Em    C    D         G
Dooo oooh wee, wild night is calling

All the girls walk by, dressed up for each other
And the boys do the boogie woogie on the corner of the street
And the people passin' by stare in wide wonder
And the inside jukebox blows out just like thunder

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
     Em                      G   (G/C G G/C G)
The wi--------ld night is calling
     Em                      G   (G/C G G/C G)
The wi--------ld night is calling
                   Em  Em(VII)            G
I'm going out and dance, come on out and make romance
                 Em      D                 G
Come on out and dance, come on out, make romance (yes indeed)

[SOLO] (over first two lines of verse)
[REPEAT BRIDGE]


Em: 0 2 2 0 0 0  Em(VII): 7 7 9 9 8 7   G/C: 3 x 2 0 1 3


NOTE: Listen to the record to get a better idea.  I lamely tried to show
how one can use G and G/C to a rhythm much like a blues choogle.
(from Tupelo Honey, 1971)

                Wild Night
                ==========
             by Van Morrison


I know this isn't really a guitar type song, but it sounds okay I think
(hey, think Cake & Gloria G)

            Bm
     As you brush your shoes
                          D
     And stand before the mirror
             Bm
     And you comb your hair
                            D
     And grab your coat and hat
             Bm
     And you walk, wet streets
                  D
     Tryin' to remember
              G
     All the wild breezes
     A                  D
     In your mem'ry ever.
                Bm                G
     And ev'rything looks so complete
                  Bm                G
     When you're walkin' out on the street
             Bm                 G
     And the wind catches your feet
                   A
     And sends you flyin', cryin'
     Bm     G    A    D
     Ooh-wee!
          A             Bm
     The wild night is calling.
                 Bm
     And all the girls walk by
                         D
     Dressed up for each other
             Bm
     And the boys do the boogie-woogie
                          D
     On the corner of the street
             Bm
     And the people passin' by
                        D
     Just stare in wild wonder
              G
     And the inside juke-box
     A                   D
     Roars out just like thunder.
               Bm               G
     And everything looks so complete...

     The wild night is calling

     The wild night is calling

     Come on out and dance

     Come on out and make romance....

The first and second versions here are fairly accurate but the last one is not accurate to the recording.

I heard of this from a <a href="http://www.affiliatedroofers.ca/services/residential-roofing/">roofer vancouver</a>! Who'd have thought?
