"Midnight Confessions"
(Lou Josie)
Originally done by the Evergreen Blues (Mercury 72756) earlier in 1968; the
Grass Roots' arrangement is more-or-less a note-for-note copy of theirs.

Verse 1:
[G#m]The sound of your footsteps
[F#]Telling me that you're near
[A#m]Your soft gentle motion, baby
[D#m]Brings out the need in me that [C#]no-one can hear, except
[F#]In my midn[C#]ight confessions
[G#m]When I tell all the w[C#]orld that I love you
[F#]In my midn[C#]ight confessions
[G#m]When I say all the t[C#]hings that I want to
I love you
[E]But a little gold r[B]ing you wear on your h[F#]and makes me u[C#]nderstand
[E]There's another bef[B]ore me, you'll never be [F#]mine
I'm wasting my t[D#]ime
[repeat first four bars of intro, tben 2/4 bar w/snare on 2] 
Verse 2:
Staggering through the daytime
Your image on my mind
Passing so close beside you baby
Sometimes the feelings are so hard to hide, except
[repeat cborus] 
Horn break:

[repeat bridge] 
[repeat cborus; first two lines over arpeggiated organ cbords only] 
Coda [repeat to fade]
[F#]Na na-na [C#]na na na na-na
[E]Na na-na [B]na na na na-na
