Night Moves - Bob Seger  (4/4 - Capo 1st Fret)

Introduction:  G  [G    F C]  C  [C    F G]  (2 times)


G                        [G                      F C]
I was a little too tall, coulda' used a few pounds
C                        [C                      F G]
Tight pants, points, hardly reknown
G                        [G                      F C]
She was a black haired beauty with big dark eyes
C                        [C                      F G]
And points all her own sittin' way up high
G                        [G                      F C]
.......
C                        [C                      F G]
......way up firm and high
G                        [G                      F C]
Out past the cornfields, where the woods got heavy
C                        [C                      F G]
Out in the backseat of my sixty Chevy
G                        [G                      F C]
Workin on mysteries without any clues
C                        [C

Chorus:
------
         D Em] [Em          D C] [C
Working on our night moves
         D Em] [Em             D      C] [C 
Tryin' to make some front page drive-in news
         D Em] [Em                  D C] [C     D  G]
Working on our night moves.........


Verse:
-----

G                        [G                      F C]
......in the summertime
C                        [C                      F G]
  in the sweet, summertime, summertime
G                        [G                      F C]
We weren't in love, oh no, far from it
C                        [C                      F G]
We weren't searching for some pie-in-the-sky summit
G                        [G                      F C]
We were just young and restless and bored, 
C                        [C                      F G]
Living by the sword
G                        [G                      F C]
And we'd steal away every chance we could 
C                        [C                      F G]
To the back room, the alley, or the trusty woods
G                        [G                      F C]
I used her, she used me but neither one cared
C                        [C
We were getting our share


Chorus:
------

         D Em] [Em          D C] [C
Working on our night moves
         D Em] [Em             D      C] [C 
Tryin' to lose the awkward teenage blues
         D Em] [Em                  D C] [C    D  G]
Working on our night moves.........  


G                        [G                     F C]
......in the summertime
C                        [C                     F G]
Ohhhhh...............
G                        [G                     F C]
Sweet, summertime, summertime
C                        [C              D Em  hold]
......
[Em             D       G]   G7


Interlude:
---------

     Cmaj7
And ohhhhh..........
   G         Cmaj7 
I  wonder         hey, we felt the lightening.
F                             D                         G (hold)
And we waited on the thunder,     waited on the thunder
  G             
I woke last night to the sound of thunder
Cmaj7
How far off I sat and wondered,
        G
Started humming a song from 1962
Cmaj7                         Em
       Ain't it funny how the night moves
C                     Em                C
We just don't seem to have as much to lose
                Em
Strange how the night moves    
C        Cmaj7            G
     with autumn closing in


Outro:
-----
G                        [G                      F C]
Night moves..........
C                        [C                      F G]
Night moves..........
G                        [G                      F C]
Night moves..........
C                        [C                      F G]
Night moves..........

(repeat and fade)
