Hollywood Nights - Bob Seger  (4/4 )

Introduction: E   A/E   D/E   E  (2 times)


Verse 1:
-------

E
She stood there bright as the sun
        A/E
On that California coast
D/E                             E
He was a Midwestern boy on his own
E
She looked at him with those soft eyes
   A/E
So innocent and blue
D/E                                    E
He knew right then he was too far from home

E A/E             D/E         E
     He was too far from home

E                                  A/E
She took his hand and she led him along that golden beach 
D/E                                     E
They watched the waves tumble over the sand
E
They drove for miles and miles
         A/E
Up those twisting turning roads
D/E                                E
Higher and higher and higher they climbed


Chorus:
------

E                           A/E
And those Hollywood nights. In those Hollywood hills
D                         E
She was looking so right. In her diamonds and frills
E                         A/E
Oh those big city nights. In those high rolling hills
D                     E
Above all the lights. She had all of her skills


Interlude:  D   A   E    E    ||     E   A/E   D/E   E


Verse 2:
-------

E                                     A/E                                    
He'd headed west cause he felt that a change would do him good
D/E                                 E
See some old friends, good for the soul
E
She had been born with a face
           A/E
That would let her get her way 
D/E                                      E
He saw that face and he lost all control

E A/E            D/E        E
     He had lost all control

E                             A/E
Night after night, Day after day It went on and on
D/E                                E
Then came that morning he woke up alone
E                                      A/E
He spent all night staring down at the lights on LA
D/E                           E
Wondering if he could ever go home


Chorus: (2 times)

E                           A/E
And those Hollywood nights. In those Hollywood hills
D                         E
She was looking so right. It was giving him chills
E                         A/E
In those big city nights. In those high rolling hills
D                     E
Above all the lights. With a passion that kills


E                           A/E
And those Hollywood nights. In those Hollywood hills
D                         E
She was looking so right. In her diamonds and frills
E                         A/E
Oh those big city nights. In those high rolling hills
D                     E
Above all the lights. She had all of her skills

Song Info  Hollywood Nights - Bob Seger
Hollywood Nights - Bob Seger
"Hollywood Nights" is a song written and recorded by American rock artist Bob Seger. It was released in 1978 as the second single from his album, Stranger in Town. The single edit reached No. 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. In the UK, the full five-minute version was released as a single on black and silver vinyl, and gave him his chart debut at No. 42. A live version from the in-concert album Nine Tonight in 1981 was issued in the UK as a single and charted at No. 49, while a reissue of the original version in 1995 charted at No. 52

Seger said "The chorus just came into my head; I was driving around in the Hollywood Hills, and I started singing 'Hollywood nights/Hollywood hills/Above all the lights/Hollywood nights.' I went back to my rented house, and there was a Time with Cheryl Tiegs on the cover...I said 'Let's write a song about a guy from the Midwest who runs into someone like this and gets caught up in the whole bizarro thing.'"
