Tonight's the night,        tonight's the night,
	    RIFF1                 RIFF 2/RIFF4
Tonight's the night,        tonight's the night,
Bruce Berry was a workin' man;
			    RIFF 2/RIFF 4
He used to load that Econoline Van.

A sparkle was in his eyes,
		     RIFF 2/RIFF 4
but his life was in his hand.

Late at night when the people were gone 
		   RIFF 5 (w/ guitar impro)
he used to pick up my guitar

and sing a song in a shaky voice
		     RIFF 2
that was real as the day was long.

	    RIFF1                 RIFF 2/RIFF4
Tonight's the night,        tonight's the night,
	    RIFF1                 RIFF 2/RIFF4
Tonight's the night,        tonight's the night,

RIFF 5, w/ guitar impro
Early in the mornin' at the break of day
he used to sleep until the afternoon.
If you never heard him sing,
I guess you won't too soon.
'Cause people let me tell you,
it sent a chill up and down my spine
when I picked up the telephone
and heard that he died out on the mainline.

E             D     RIFF1   E             D (RIFF 2/RIFF 4)
Tonight's the night,        tonight's the night,
E             D     RIFF1   E             D (RIFF 2/RIFF 4)
Tonight's the night,        tonight's the night,

GUITAR SOLO (over E, w/ RIFF 5)

RIFF 5, w/ guitar impro
Bruce Berry was a workin' man;
He used to load that Econoline Van.
Well late at night when the people were gone 
he used to pick up my guitar

GUITAR SOLO

and sing a song in a shaky voice
		     RIFF 2
that was real as the day was long.
