Miss You Nights Cliff Richard
Written by Dave Townsend

F/g, I do not know if this is what the chord is called, but I'll call it that just to give it a name.
It's an F with the little finger 3rd fret first e string.
F/g F F/g Dm
I've had many times, I can tell you,
Bb Am Gm Dm..........C
Times when innocence I'd trade for compan........y,
F/g F F/g Dm
And children saw me crying.
[Bb]I thought I [Am]had my share of [Gm]that.
But these [Bb]Miss You Nights [Am] [Gm] are the [F]longest.
(Next verse same as above)
Midnight diamonds stud my heaven,
Southward burning lie the jewels that eye your place,
And warm winds that embrace me,
Just as surely kissed your face.
Yeah, these Miss You Nights they're the longest.
(How I missed you,)
How I [Am]missed you, I'm not [Gm]likely to [Bb]tell.
I'm a[Dm] man,
And [Am]cold daylight buys the[Gm] pride I'd rather se[C]ll.
[C](All my s[F]ecrets,)
All my [Am]secretes are a [Gm]wasted affair,
You [Dm]know them [F]well.
(next verse same as first two)
Thinking of my going,
How to cut the thread and leave it all behind.
Looking windwards, for my compass,
I take each day as it arrives.
But these Miss You Nights are the longest.
[Bb]Lay down all [Am]thoughts[Dm] of your surren[F]de[Bb]r,
[Bb]It's only [Am]me who's killing [Gm]time.
[Bb]Play down all [Am]dreams and the[Dm]mes once remember[F]ed,[Bb]
[Bb]It's just the s[Gm]ame[Bb], this miss you[Gm] game.
[Bb] [Gm] [F]
Yes, these Miss You Nights are the longest.
