[Em]As you brush your shoes
And stand before the [G]mirr[(G6)]or
And you comb your [Em]hair
And grab your coat and [G]hat[(G6)]
And you [Em]walk, wet streets
Tryin' to re[G]mem[(G6)]ber
All the [C]wild night breezes
[D]In your mem'ry [G]ever
And ev'ry[Em]thing looks so comp[C]lete
When you're [Em]walkin' out on the [C]street
And the [Em]wind catches your [C]feet
And sends you [D]flyin', cryin'
[Em]Oooooooooooooo - wee
The wild [D]night is [G]calling, alright
[Em]Oooooooooooooo - wee
The wild [D]night is [G]calling.
And all the girls walk by
Dressed up for each other
And the boys do the boobie-woogie
On the corner of the street
And the people passin' by
Just stare in wild wonder
And inside the juke-box
Roars out just like thunder.
Ooooh - wee
The wild night is calling
The wild night is calling
Come on out and dance
Come on out and make romance...

WILD NIGHT- Van Morrison
Em Em(VII) G G/C G G/C G G/C G (rpt)
Em Em(VII) G G/C G G/C G G/C G
Then you brush your shoes, smile before the mirror
Em Em(VII) G G/C G G/C G G/C G
And you comb your hair, grab your comb and laugh
Em Em(VII) G G/C G Em
And you walk west streets trying to remember
C D G G/C G G/C G (n.c.)
All the wild night breezes in your memory ever
CHORUS:
And everyt[Em]hing looks so com[C]plete
When you're w[Em]alking out on the st[C]reet
And the wi[Em]nd catches your fe[C]et and sends you fl[D]ying, cr[D7]ying
[Em]Doo[C]o o[D]ooh [Em]wee, w[C]ild n[D]ight is ca[G]lling
[Em]Doo[C]o o[D]ooh [Em]wee, w[C]ild n[D]ight is ca[G]lling
All the girls walk by, dressed up for each other
And the boys do the boogie woogie on the corner of the street
And the people passin' by stare in wide wonder
And the inside jukebox blows out just like thunder
CHORUS
BRIDGE:
[Em] [G] [(G/C] [G] [G/C] [G)]  
 
 The wi--------ld night is calling

[Em] [G] [(G/C] [G] [G/C] [G)]  
 
 The wi--------ld night is calling

Em Em(VII) G
I'm going out and dance, come on out and make romance
Come on out and d[Em]ance, co[D]me on out, make ro[G]mance (yes indeed)
SOLO (over first two lines of verse)
REPEAT BRIDGE
Em: 0 2 2 0 0 0 Em(VII): 7 7 9 9 8 7 G/C: 3 x 2 0 1 3
NOTE: Listen to the record to get a better idea. I lamely tried to show
how one can use G and G/C to a rhythm much like a blues choogle.

Wild Night
==========
by Van Morrison
I know this isn't really a guitar type song, but it sounds okay I think
(hey, think Cake & Gloria G)
As you [Bm]brush your shoes
And stand before the [D]mirror
And you [Bm]comb your hair
And grab your coat and [D]hat
And you [Bm]walk, wet streets
Tryin' to rem[D]ember
All the w[G]ild breezes
[A]In your mem'ry ever[D].
And ev'ryth[Bm]ing looks so compl[G]ete
When you're w[Bm]alkin' out on the [G]street
And the [Bm]wind catches your f[G]eet
And sends you [A]flyin', cryin'
[Bm]Ooh-wee[G]! [A] [D]
The w[A]ild night is c[Bm]alling.
And all the [Bm]girls walk by
Dressed up for each [D]other
And the [Bm]boys do the boogie-woogie
On the corner of the [D]street
And the [Bm]people passin' by
Just stare in wild [D]wonder
And the i[G]nside juke-box
[A]Roars out just like [D]thunder.
And everyt[Bm]hing looks so com[G]plete...
The wild night is calling
The wild night is calling
Come on out and dance
Come on out and make romance....
