 You tell me this town ain't got no heart.
 DmC/DDmC/DDm
 Well, well, well, you can never tell.
 GC/GFC9
 The sunny side of the street is dark.
 DmC/DDmC/DDmC
 Well, well, well, you can never tell.

 Maybe that's cause it's midnight,
 Em7
And the 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
 Ebm7Dm7

 Dm7
 Maybe the dark is from your eyes

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

 Nothin' shakin' on Shakedown Street;           
 C7sus4C7C7sus4C7
 used to be the heart of town.           
 C7sus4C7C7sus4C7
Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart.           
 C7sus4C7C7sus4C7C#7
You just gotta poke around.                

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.
