CHORUS I'm the nightwatchman I make the rounds I'm the nightwatchman I gotta keep my nose to the ground VERSE 1 (play a variation between B and E the whole verse) **there's a slide guitar playing in the background, but I can't make it out over the main guitar Honey this ain't no job for a man like me I got potential, I could be just what you need You got to think about the pros and cons You could be right, you could be wrong CHORUS (repeat both licks) I'm the nightwatchman I am security I'm the nightwatchman How safe do you wanna be? VERSE 2 (repeat same chords as before) I sit around at night and listen to the radio If I get real bored I might have a little smoke Yeah I got a permit to wear this .38 But listen my life's worth more than the minimum wage A, G, A, E Begin main lick again CHORUS I'm the nightwatchman I make the rounds I'm the nightwatchman I gotta keep my nose to the ground (E the whole way through till the end) I'm the nightwatchman I am security I'm the nightwatchman How safe do you wanna be? I'm the nightwatchman (repeat 2x) How safe do you wanna be?
