Warren Haynes - Night Of A Thousand Stars chords

Night Of A Thousand Stars 

Written By: Robert Hunter
Performed by:  Warren Haynes/Phil Lesh & Friends

BFull moon rising over Alcatraz
F#m A EHangin' there like a big topaz
BRuling this night of a thousand stars
F#m A E With a back seat full of broken guitars
BRaised in chains by Jehosaphat's daughter
F#m A EServed twenty years for walkin' on the water
BJust out fishin' for love in the rain
F#m A EFrom an easy chair in the passing lane
F#m A EIf I had forgotten, I'd remember well
F#m A EThe fruit and the tree from which it fell
F#m A EMany long years rollin' homeward bound
F#m A EGoin' hell-for-leather on this merry go round
E B ANight of a thousand stars
E B AThe sound of sweet guitars
B AOn this night (on this night)
B AOn this night (on this night)
B AOn this night (on this night)
B EOn this night of a thousand stars
BDown in the laundry with my head in my hands
F#m A EDoin' whatsoever the Lord commands
BPoppin' the hood off a Ford V8
F#m A EDisguised with an out of state license plate
BPayin' my taxes in whiskey and blood
F#m A EMixed in a barrel floating on the flood
BDoing my penance for a life of crime
F#m A ESinging B Minor Masses in double time
F#m A EThe tiger and the lion hanging on the wall
F#m A EBetween the head of a saint and a bocce ball
F#m A EI've been rebuked and I've been scorned
F#m A EBut I can't ever say that I haven't been warned
[chorus] Bridge
E Bm AI tried to serve you right
E Bm A-EI tried to serve you well
E Bm AIt looked all right by morning light
Bm AIn hindsight - who can tell?
Jam on Chorus
BFlipping through the pages of my soul
F#m A EMy heart rears up and swallows me whole
BThese were moments of my life
F#m A E Since dissected with a thick blunt knife
BIf I could recapture one moment of truth
F#m A EFrom the firm foundation of a misspent youth
BI'd fall like rain on this thirsty earth
F#m A EA testament of beauty and worth
F#m A EBut if it don't happen because it can't
F#m A EI hope and pray this wish you grant
F#m A EFrom one man's heart to a falling star
F#m A EWe always remember who we are
Jam on Chorus
BRemember the night of a thousand stars
F#m A EWhen love swam naked in the reservoir
BWriting mad sonnets in the midnight park
F#m A E Leaving tracks of tears for her watermark
BDrums of the jungle on the edge of night
F#m A E Only you could see with your perfect sight
BIf you don't remember you can be excused
F#m A E 'Cause it could never be reproduced
