John Mellencamp
Lonely Ol' Night

I watched John play it this way solo on TV (accoutic)

Play around with the D chords at the end of the lines.  John was lifting his fingers 
the first and third strings on the D chord.


D                         G                       D
She calls me up and says "Baby, it's a lonely ol' night"
D                         G                     D
I don't know, I'm just so scared and lonely all at the same time
G                     C                   G
Nobody told us it was gonna work out this way
      C
No no no no no
D                      G                      D
I guess they knew we'd work it out in our own way

C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
C            G
Can I put my arms around you?
C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
D               G                      D
Custom made for two lonely people like me and you

D             G                    D
Radio playing softly some singer's sad, sad song
D                                G
He's singin about stanin' in the shadows of love
                 D
I guess he feels awfully alone
G                C               G
She says "I know exactly what he means
          C
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah"
D                    G                                   D
And it's a sad, sad, feelin' when you're livin' on those in betweens,

C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
C            G
Can I put my arms around you?
C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
D               G               D
Custom made for two people like me and you

D                  G                   D
She calls me baby, She calls everybody baby
D                 G                     D
It's a lonely ol' night, but ain't they all?

C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
C            G
Can I put my arms around you?
C                 G
It's a lonely ol' night
D               G               D
Custom made for two people like me and you

D         Ddim   D
Yeah like me and you
D         Ddim   D
Yeah like me and you
