Intro
G   Em    C    G  x2

VIG             Em                    C                          G
I was hoping to rest a while but this cup of coffee will have to do 
G            Em                        C                   G
I’ve got one hand on the wheel and one arm reaching out to you 
G                   Em                   Am            C            G 
Closed your eyes in Grand Junction and I ain’t heard a word from you since 
G                        Em                   C                G
So I’ll just try to stay inside the lines and mind the sideways wind 
G                   Em             C             G
All I’ve got is the radio and this empty distant sky 
G                              Em
And Willie’s singing somewhere over the rainbow 
    C       Am                C        Em
But you, no you won’t see the tears in my eyes 

Chorus: 
  C                 G         D
Before the night is gone 
          Em      C                    G       D 
Won’t you tell me our love will linger on? 
Em                           G                            C                G
And knock that chip off your shoulder, Into your heart of stone to start a spark 
      Em     C                  G
Cause I need someway..... to see.... in the dark 

V2
G                  Em             C                    G
Thought I could be honest and you thought you could be true 
G               Em                     C                 G
The promises we made were many but the ones we kept were few 
G                   Em                C               G
We were looking for green grass and a warm and loving home 
G                  Em            C                      G
But we’ve got this cold concrete curse in our blood and our bones 
G                    Em                  C                          G
When we crossed that great divide it was in the back of both of our minds 
G               Em                       Am           C     G    Em
Like the rivers from that point you’d go your way and I’d   go   mine 


Chorus: 
  C                 G         D
Before the night is gone 
          Em          C                G       D  Am
Won’t you tell me our love will linger on? 
Em                           G          D                C                G
And knock that chip off your shoulder Into your heart of stone to start a spark 
      Em         C                  G
Cause I need someway.... to see.... in the dark 

Instrumental    G  Em  C  G  x4

V3
G                      Em                  C              G
The gas station on the state line where we saw the posted signs 
G                  Em                         C              G
The government was saying they were sorry and trying to apologize 
G                Em                  C              G
About the poison in the sand and the lies they told again and again 
G                    Em                        C                 G
They thought if they gave us enough money that we would all understand 
G            Em                    C              G            
But babe you never will and that’s why I love you still  
G                    Em                 C             G          Em
No matter how far we drift apart You’ll always have a piece of   my heart 

Chorus:
  C                 G         D
Before the night is gone 
          Em          C                G       D  Am
Won’t you tell me our love will linger on? 
Em                           G          D                C                G
And knock that chip off your shoulder Into your heart of stone to start a spark 
      Em         C                  G
Cause I need someway.... to see.... in the dark
