Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Then Came The Night  Trace Adkins

[D]Long legged shadows,
[A]Mississippi sunset,
[D]She was standing like a candle,
[G]That hadn't been burned yet.
[D]The wind was blowing,
[A]The clouds like ashes,
[D]Had my hand in my pocket,
[G]Reaching for my matches.


[D]I can see those cotton sheets da[A]ncing,
[D]On her momma's clothesline in my[A] head,
[D]>From my lips a Lucky Strike was[A] dangling,
[D]The day was dying in a sea of re[A]d.
CHORUS

[D]Then came the night, [A]Warm and dark,
[G]Dragging it's chains, [A]Across our hearts.
[D]The moon was full, [A]The grass was wet
[G]Making us scream, [A]Making us sweat
[D]Holding on tight, [A]It was wrong, it was right
[D]Then came the night     [G]

[D]There was a time
[A]When love was a flower
[D]Now it's a vine
[G]Clinbing up the tower
[D]And the river just rolls
[A]Past the garden
[D]Where love won't grow
[G]And the ground is hardened.
[D]I can see that t[A]attered white flag flying
[D]I can hear the r[A]inging mission bell
[D]Telling of the i[A]nnocence that's dying
[D]A sound that I r[A]emember oh so well.
CHORUS

[D]Then came the night, [A]Warm and dark
[G]Dragging its chains, [A]Across our hearts
[D]The moon was full, [A]The grass was wet
[G]Making us scream, [A]Making us sweat
[D]Making us cling, [G]Making us claw
[D]Making us rise, [A]Making us fall
[D]Breath on breath, [A]Skin on skin
[G]I can't go back, [A]There again
[D]Holdin on tight, [A]It was wrong, it was right
[D]Then came the night.    [G]
