TONIGHT, TONIGHT - Smashing Pumpkins
This song has a very "Disarm-y" feel. It is downtuned half a step.

I have labelled these as Figs because the order is quite complicated, there
is no definite verse/chorus pattern. Strumming patterns and chord changes
are easy so I haven=92t bothered illustrating it.
Fig1:
G E x2=20
(strum each many times)
Fig2:
C B D x3 G (G at end of third one)

Verse 1: with Rhy Fig 1
Time is never time at all
you can never ever leave without leaving a piece
of youth
and our lives are forever changed
we will never be the same
the more you change the more you feel
believe, believe in me, believe
 AmCGDEm
 that life can change, that you're not stuck in vain   
 AmC
 we're not the same, we're different tonight
Chorus:
 CBD
 tonight, so bright
tonight
 G
 And you know you're never sure
but you're sure you could be right
 Em
 if you held yourself up to the light
 G
 and the embers never fade in your city by the lake
 Em
 the place where you were born
with Rhy Fig 1 ( omit the 3rd Bar)
believe, believe in me, believe
 AmCGDEm
 in the resolute urgency of now   
 AmC
 and if you believe there's not a chance tonight
 CBD
 tonight, so bright
 CBDGDEm
 tonight    
 AmCGDEm
 we'll crucify the insincere tonight  
Am C G D Em
we'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
 AmCGDEm
 we'll find a way to offer up the night tonight 
 AmCGDEm
 the indescribable moments of your life tonight 
 AmCGDEm
 the impossible is possible tonight 
 AmC
if you believe in me as I believe in you , tonight
End song with tonight tonight a few times while playing Rhy Fig 1(omit 3rd)
The last chords are G D Em. I find that you get a more dramatic exit
if you use D/F# instead of D. Enjoy. Alex Spitzer
