On a Quiet Night  The Association

(P.F. Sloan)
(harpsichord arr. for guitar):
[A/B] v v v v v v v v v v v v

Verse 1:
[Emaj7]On [F#m7] a [Emaj7/G#] quiet [Amaj7]night
[Gmaj7]You can [Amaj7]hear the [Emaj7]rustling of the l[Bsus4]eaves
[Emaj7]On [F#m7] a [Emaj7/G#] quiet [Amaj7]night
[Gmaj7]Distant [Amaj7]voices carry [Emaj7]softly in the [Bsus4]breeze
Chorus 1:
And [C#m]I'm inside my room
[G#m]Captured in a moment's thought
[Gmaj7]Strumming on a chord from my g[F#m7]uitar
A/B (N.C.; harpsichord as per intro)
Silently, silently (silently)
So silently (so silently)
Verse 2:
On a quiet night
Time hangs heavy in the air just like a cloud
I'm lying on my bed
Scratching my head, wondering what it's about
Chorus 2:
Are we all minstrels
Playing in a three-ring circus
Searching for a purpose that's not there
Silently, silently (silently)
So silently (so silently, so silently, so silently)
v v v v

[D#7] Everybody's t[G#m]hinking
Gotta [F#]get ahead, gotta get ah[B]ead
[D#7] Everybody's d[G#m]rinking
[F#]Hurrying, worrying, p[A]laying the game
All a[G#m]cting the same
As [B]I look o[A]ut through my [G#m]window[F#m]pane
Verse 3:
On a quiet night
The wind, it can play tricks on your ear
Like some unsolved mystery
We all guess at the ending, but nobody comes near
(repeat chorus 2)
A/B (harpsichord, recorder, drums, backward tambourine to fade)
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
