Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Mainstreet  Bob Seger


#Verse:[D]I remember standing on the corner at [C]midnight, [G] [Em]
Tryin' to get my [D]courage up [C]      [G]        [Em]
There was this [D]long, lovely dancer in a little [C]club downtown [G]    [Em]
I loved to watch her [D]do her stuf[C]f [G]  [Em]
Through the [Bm]long, lonely [Bsus2]nights, she [Bm]filled my [Bsus2]sleep,   [F#m]
Her body softly [G]swayin' to that [Em]smoky beat[G/A]

Chorus (w/riff):
Down on [D]Mainstreet[C]      [G]    [Em]
Down on Mainstreet

In the pool halls, the hustlers and the losers,
I used to watch 'em through the glass
Well I'd stand outside at closing time
Just to watch her walk on past
Unlike all the other ladies, she looked so young and sweet
As she made her way alone down that empty street

Down on Mainstreet
Down on Mainstreet

Solo (over chords)

And sometimes even now, when I'm feelin' lonely and beat,
I drift back in time, and I find my feet

Down on Mainstreet, down on Mainstreet
Down on Mainstreet, down on Mainstreet
Down on Mainstreet, down on Mainstreet

The main riff is changed slightly during each chorus (it gets
simpler each time) and there is a piano accompaniment throughout.
Sorry I don?t have the solo yet; this is my first tab.
