Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Wild night  Van Morrison


Funky little bass line (just the basic structure, varies a lot):

[Em]As you brush your shoes
And stand before the [G]mirr[G6]or
And you comb your [Em]hair
And grab your coat and [G]hat[G6]
And you [Em]walk, wet streets
Tryin' to re[G]mem[G6]ber
All the [C]wild night breezes
[D]In your mem'ry [G]ever
And ev'ry[Em]thing looks so comp[C]lete
When you're [Em]walkin' out on the [C]street
And the [Em]wind catches your [C]feet
And sends you [D]flyin', cryin'
[Em]Oooooooooooooo - wee
The wild [D]night is [G]calling, alright
[Em]Oooooooooooooo - wee
The wild [D]night is [G]calling.
And all the girls walk by
Dressed up for each other
And the boys do the boobie-woogie
On the corner of the street
And the people passin' by
Just stare in wild wonder
And inside the juke-box
Roars out just like thunder.
Ooooh - wee
The wild night is calling
The wild night is calling
Come on out and dance
Come on out and make romance...

WILD NIGHT- Van Morrison
Em Em(VII) G G/C G G/C G G/C G (rpt)
Em Em(VII) G G/C G G/C G G/C G
Then you brush your shoes, smile before the mirror
Em Em(VII) G G/C G G/C G G/C G
And you comb your hair, grab your comb and laugh
Em Em(VII) G G/C G Em
And you walk west streets trying to remember
C D G G/C G G/C G (n.c.)
All the wild night breezes in your memory ever
And everyt[Em]hing looks so com[C]plete
When you're w[Em]alking out on the st[C]reet
And the wi[Em]nd catches your fe[C]et and sends you fl[D]ying, cr[D7]ying
[Em]Doo[C]o o[D]ooh [Em]wee, w[C]ild n[D]ight is ca[G]lling
[Em]Doo[C]o o[D]ooh [Em]wee, w[C]ild n[D]ight is ca[G]lling
All the girls walk by, dressed up for each other
And the boys do the boogie woogie on the corner of the street
And the people passin' by stare in wide wonder
And the inside jukebox blows out just like thunder

I'm going out and dance, come on out and make romance
Come on out and d[Em]ance, co[D]me on out, make ro[G]mance (yes indeed)
SOLO (over first two lines of verse)
Em: 0 2 2 0 0 0 Em(VII): 7 7 9 9 8 7 G/C: 3 x 2 0 1 3
NOTE: Listen to the record to get a better idea. I lamely tried to show
how one can use G and G/C to a rhythm much like a blues choogle.
