Help Me Make It Through The Night
written by Kris Kristofferson
INTRO (start off in a jazzy-bluesy waltz): A7
Take the ribbon from yo[D]ur hair[D/B] [D]
Shake it [D7]lose and let it [G]fall[G/E] [G]
Lyin' soft against [A7]your skin
Like the shadows [D]on the wall
(Hold it, hold it, I say hold it, son!
That ain't movin' me! Let's put a little fire in it!)
(three gunshots)
(shift into an upbeat bluegrass shuffle)
[D] [A7/]  
Take the ribbon from your [D]hair (ripping sound) (Yeeeoooowww!)
Shake it [D7]lose and let it [G]fall (thud, breaking glass)
Lyin' soft against your [A7]skin (slap) (ooh ooh ooh ooh!)
Like the shadows on the [D]wall
Come and lay here by my side (tree falling) (Timber!)
'Til the [D7]early mornin' [G]light (cock-a-doodle-doo!) (gunshot) [G/E](ohhh!)
All I'm takin' is your [A7]time (ticking clock) (cookoo!)
Help me make it through the [D]night (help me h[A7]elp me[D]! ohhhhhhh!)
I don't know what's right or [G]wrong (Order in the court!) (I'll have a cheeseburger!)
I don't try to under[D]stand (ibbity-ibbity-ibbity that's easy for you to say!)
Let that devil take [E7]tomorrow (mad cackling)
'Cause tonight I need a [A7]friend (drinking sounds, belch)
N/C D D7
Yesterday is dead and gone (Ashes to ashes)
And tomorrow's out of [G]sight (far out du[G/E]de)
And it's sad to be [A7]alone (oh I can't stand it! Ohhhh!)
Help me make it through the [D]night ([A7]siren[D]s)
Yes it's sad to be [A7]alone (Yes I can't stand it I can't stand it ohhh!)
(gunshot, thud)
(shift back to jazzy waltz)
Help me make it through the [G]night[A7] [G] [D]
(drinking sounds, belch, whistle) (Hold it!) (Ohhh! Ohhh!)
(Gunshot, breaking glass, thud) (Well now I say, I say that's more like it!)
