Blue Oyster Cult - I Love The Night chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I've never been able to find a tab for this song that sounds right, so I figured 
it out by ear. I play a couple of different chord voicings, depending on if I'm 
playing solo or with another guitarist. The first variation is with standard (open 
position) chords and the second is based off the 7th position. This is my 
interpretation of the song. YMMV

Open position chord voicings:

G - 3|2|0|0|3|3


C  D/A  C  D/A  Em
Am             B7                  Em
That night her kiss told me it was over
Am           B7            Em
I walked out late into the dark
G         Am                         C      B7
The misty gloom seemed to soak up my sorrow
C                  B7
The further I went on
C                  B7
I felt a spreading calm
    Am          B7                    Em
And suddenly my eyes were filled with light
      Am             B7              Em
And a lovely lady in white was by my side, and she said
G          Am                  C   B7
Like me, I see youíre walking alone
C                B7
Wonít you please stay?
C                B7
I couldnít look away
C  D/A  C  D/A
              C  D/A          C    D/A
Then she said I      love the night
    C                   D/A
The day is okay and the sun can be fun
      C                 D/A        C   D/A  C  D/A
But I live to see those rays slip away
C  D/A          C     D/A
I      love the night
        C                  D/A              C
Thereís so much that I can show and give to you
            D/A          C    D/A  C  D/A
If you will welcome me tonight
   C            D/A           C    D/A
If only you had been there my dear
C              D/A           C      D/A
 We could have shared this together



No Mortal was meant to know such wonder
One look in the mirror told me so
Come darkness Iíll see her again
Yes Iím gonna go
ĎCause now I know
I love the night
The day is okay and the sun can be fun
But I live to see those rays slip away
I love the night
I love the night
I love the night
