Dark Side of Town  Eliza Gilkyson

[C]He was the black sheep of the [F]family
[C]How did mamaís pride and [F]joy
[C]Go from such a precious [F]baby
To the [G]devilís poster boy
[C]Iím gonna slick my hair like [F]Elvis
[C]Roll my cuffs like Jerry [F]Lee
[C]If the backbeatís born in [F]hell
Then thatís the [G]place I want to be
Gonna [F]be a midnight [C]rider
Gonna [F]burn my candle [C]down
[F]Followin that driviní [C]beat
To the [Dm]dark side of [F]town
[C]From the barrooms of Deep [F]Ellum
[C]To the crashpads on the [F]bay
[C]He spiraled slow and [F]steady
Down a [G]lonely blue hiway
[C]Iím gonna chase my beer with [F]whiskey
[C]Stick a needle in my [F]skin
[C]Gonna celebrate the [F]mystery
Of the [G]hole Iíve fallen in
ĎCause Iím a [F]midnite [C]rider
Gonna [F]burn my candle [C]down
[F]Followiní that driviní [C]beat
To the [Dm]dark side of [F]town
[C]He loved that funky [F]music
[C]He knew the backroad [F]scenes
[C]Every barbeque and b[F]lues band
Between [G]here and New Orleans
[C]He put down the [F]bottle
[C]October Ď8[F]9
[C]Eased up on the [F]throttle
bought [G]him a little time
B[F]ut he was a midnite [C]rider
[F]He burned that candle [C]down
[F]Hanginí out on easy [C]does it street
On the [Dm]dark side of [F]town
[C]Big Al settled [F]down
[C]Along the banks of Onion [F]creek
[C]With a pickup and a hound [F]dog
And a l[G]ittle lucky streak
[C]He nursed that fragile [F]frame
[C]Through the hurricanes and [F]drought
[C]It was a summer wind that [F]came
And [G]blew the candle out
[F]But he was a midnite [C]rider
[F]He burned that candle [C]down
[F]Followin that d[C]riviní beat
To the d[Dm]ark side of [F]town
Oh you [F]midnite [C]rider
I [F]know youíre still a[C]round
[F]Hanginí out on e[C]asy street
On the d[Dm]ark side of town
End:
[F]On the dark side of [C]town
