Twistin The Night Away

Sam Cooke

-----------------------------.............


 G
  Let me tell ya 'bout the place,
 Em
  Somewhere up New York ways.
 C
  where the people are so gay;
 D7
  Twisting the night away.

 G
  Here they have a lot of fun,
 Em
  Putting trouble on the run.
 C
  Man there ain't nothing like;
 D7G
  Twisting the night a-way.

Chorus 1:

 G
  Twisting, twisting,
Everybody's doing great.
 C
  Twisting, twisting,
 D7C
They're twisting the night a-way.

Verse 2:

 G
  Here's a fella in blue jeans,
 Em
  He's dancing with an older queen.
 C
  Chick's dolled up in diamond ring;
 D7
  Twisting the night away.

 G
  Man you gotta see her go,
 Em
  Twisting to the rock'n'roll.
 C
  Man, there ain't nothing like;
 D7G
  Twisting the night a-way.

Chorus 2:

 G
  Twisting, twisting,
Everybody's doing great.
 C
  Twisting, twisting,
 D7C
They're twisting the night a-way.

  Here's a man in evening clothes,
 Em
  How he got here I don't know.
 C
  Man you gotta see him go;
 D7
  Twisting the night away.

 G
  He's dancing with a chick in slacks,
 Em
  This chick's moving up and back.

  Twisting the night a-way!.
