[D5]Wide awake in the middle of the night[F]
I wonder [G]how she's [D5]feelin'
[F]Is it just a trick of the light[C]
[G]Or is her ceiling [D5]peeling?
[F]She's sitting up in bed, [F]shakin' her head
At a copy of "[G]True Con[D5]fessions"
Ooh, it [F]must seem like a fairy tale[C]
To a [G]woman of her pro[D5]fession
(chorus)
F->G F->G
But was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did I [C]take you to the height of [F]ecstasy?
F->G F->G
Was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did a [C]shadow of emotion [F]cross your face
Or was it just another trick of the [D5]light?
(Bass solo: over verse chords)
(chorus)
But was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did I take you to the height of ecstasy?
Was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did a shadow of emotion cross your face
Or was it just another trick of the light?
Come on, tell me
[F]What's a nice girl like you [C]doin' in a place like [Dm]this?
[Bb]They don't make [F]girls like you no [C]more
And I'd [Dm]like to get to [Bb]know you
On [G]closer terms than [Bb]this
But I [G]guess you've heard it all be[C]fore
(opening riff)
[D]Lady of the night[F]
Won't you [G]steal away with [D]me?
[F]Lady of the night[C]
Won't you [G]steal away with [D]me?
The [F]money's lyin' [F]on the floor, she looks at me
[G]Shakes her head and s[D]ighs
[F]Out of time, out the door
[C]Red light shini[G]n' in my [D]eyes
But was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did I take you to the height of ecstasy?
Was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did a shadow of emotion cross your face
All right?
But was I all right?
All right?
