    1...WILD NIGHT... by Van Morrison
    EmG
    As you brush your shoes, and stand before the mirror. 
    EmG
    And you comb your hair, and grab your coat and hat. 
    EmG
    And you walk, wet streets, tryin' to re-member. 
    CDG
    All the wild night breezes in your mem'ry, ever. 
    EmC
    And ev'ry-thing looks so comp-lete, 
    EmC
    When you're walkin' out on the street. 
    EmCD
    And the wind catches your feet; and sends you flyin', cryin'. 
    EmDG
    Ooh..ooh...ooh-wee, the wild night is calling. 
    EmDG
    Ooh..ooh...ooh-wee, the wild night is calling. 
    EmG
    And all the girls walk by, dressed up for each other. 
    EmG
    And the boys do the Boogie-Woogie, on the corner of the street. 
    EmG
    And the people passin' by, just stare in wild wonder. 
    CDG
    And inside the juke-box roars out, just like thunder. 
    EmC
    And ev'ry-thing looks so comp-lete, 
    EmC
    When you're walkin' out on the street. 
    EmC
    And the wind catches your feet; 
    D
    And sends you flyin', cryin'. 
    EmDG
    Ooh..ooh...ooh-wee, the wild night is calling. 
    EmDG
    Ooh..ooh...ooh-wee, the wild night is calling. 
    EmG
    Come on out and dance, come on out and make ro-mance. 
    EmG
    Come on out and dance, come on out and make ro-mance. 
    EmDG
    The wild...night is calling, 
    EmDG
    The wild...night is calling. 
    EmDG
    The wild...night is calling, 
    EmDG
    The wild...night is calling.

    It's just a dirty rotten, waste of time, we go;
