Tonight's the night, tonight's the night,
RIFF1 RIFF 2/RIFF4
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night,
Bruce Berry was a workin' man;
RIFF 2/RIFF 4
He used to load that Econoline Van.
A sparkle was in his eyes,
RIFF 2/RIFF 4
but his life was in his hand.
Late at night when the people were gone
RIFF 5 (w/ guitar impro)
he used to pick up my guitar
and sing a song in a shaky voice
RIFF 2
that was real as the day was long.
RIFF1 RIFF 2/RIFF4
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night,
RIFF1 RIFF 2/RIFF4
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night,
RIFF 5, w/ guitar impro
Early in the mornin' at the break of day
he used to sleep until the afternoon.
If you never heard him sing,
I guess you won't too soon.
'Cause people let me tell you,
it sent a chill up and down my spine
when I picked up the telephone
and heard that he died out on the mainline.

RIFF 5, w/ guitar impro
Bruce Berry was a workin' man;
He used to load that Econoline Van.
Well late at night when the people were gone
he used to pick up my guitar
GUITAR SOLO
and sing a song in a shaky voice
RIFF 2
that was real as the day was long.
