[Fmaj7]Maybe that's cause it's midnight,
And the [Em7]dark of the moon besides.
[Fmaj7]Maybe the dark is from your eyes

(maybe the dark is from your eyes).
[Em7]Maybe the dark is from your eyes
(maybe the dark is from your [Ebm7]ey    [Dm7]es).
[Dm7]Maybe the dark is from your eyes

(maybe the dark is from your eyes).
[G]You know you got such dark eyes.

[C7sus4]Nothin' shakin' on [C7]Shakedown Street;  [C7sus4]        [C7]
[C7sus4]used to be the heart of [C7]town. [C7sus4]         [C7]
Don't [C7sus4]tell me this town ain't [C7]got no heart. [C7sus4]         [C7]
You [C7sus4]just gotta poke a[C7]round.  [C7sus4]        [C7]     [C#7]
You think you've seen this town clear through.
Well, well, well, you can never tell.
Nothin' here that could int'rest you.
Well, well, well, you can never tell.
It's not because you missed out
On the things that we had to start.
Maybe you had too much too fast
(maybe you had too much too fast).
Maybe you had too much too fast
(maybe you had too much too fast).
Maybe you had too much too fast
(maybe you had too much too fast).
Or just overplayed your part.

(Jam on verse, bridge, & chorus chords)

Since I'm passin' your way today,
Well, well, well, you can never tell.
I just stopped by 'cause I want to say:
Well, well, well, you can never tell.
I recall your darkness when it
Cracked like a thunder cloud.
Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart
(Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart)
Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart
(Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart)
Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart
(Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart)
When I can hear it beat out loud.
