Frankie Miller - Drunken Nights On The City www.frankiemiller.net Written for the late, great, Jimmy Johnstone. From the Album,'The Rock'. Verse1: C I'll tell you a story about a night on the town, G It started off drinking and fighting. By the time a was through, I'd near worn out my shoes, C I had visited every known dive. All the lights in the alley, Fall dim on the ground, F When your trying to see your way home. And the all night ladies, C In their perfume so fine, G C Wont leave a poor boy alone. Break: C / F / C Cadd9 C // Verse 2: C Well the paths of the gambler Are kneeded too thin, G When the cards are all spread on the floor. The six and the seven, I needed to win, C And you cant call the bluff any more. So you stand to your feet, And you figure discretly, F The best way to pay what you owe. And she hands you a line, C Tells you thanks for the time, G C 'You might have brought brains to the show.' Chorus: F Drunken nights on the city, C Are showing their toes, F C They'll take you for all that you owe. F You cant judge a book, C And you cant judge a crook, G C Down where the men, they cant go. Break: C / F / C Cadd9 C // Verse 3: C By early the next morning, I rose up to tight, G My eyes were as red as the light. My pockets were empty, And so was my heart, C And i promised to put things right. So I went to the preacher, I fell on my knees, I asked the preacher, F To right all my wrongs, But he just shook his head, C And looked sorry when he said, G C 'Youve been on the drink far too long' Chorus x2 - fade.
