Capo 3

Chords Jim McWeeney/Håkan Mattsson/Peter Dawson

(The "Em/dhe" and so on, indicates that the bass plays "D, E"
 with a hammer-on, during the Em chord.)


[Am]It's hard to say I'm sorry. 
[F]May we just forget about today.  You see,
I [G]fly by night.
I [Em]fly by night.
[Em/dhe  Em/gha]
[Am]I laid my love beside the door and
[F]left you sleeping on the floor.
So long. I [G]fly by night,
I [Em]fly by night. [Em/dhe  Em/gha Em/dhe]
[F]And though you might think it's too
[G]bad of me [G/bhc G/dhe]
[F]I have to leave you with used
[G]memories. [G/bhc G/dhe]

[Am]I have no stomach for the dawn. I
[F]feel I should be moving on and so
I [G]fly by night.
I [Em]fly by night.[Em/dhe  Em/gha]

Intro

I fly by night
I fly by night

 

[Am]Now lady luck's deserted me. The
[F]ghosts of love stand clear to see.
They also [G]fly by night. They
[Em]fly by night.[Em/dhe Em/gha]
[Am]Strange figures in the dark.  Did Cupid
[F]strike and leave his mark?
It seems his arrows [G]fly by night.
They [Em]fly by night.

Fly! Let's fly.

 

Let's fly by night.
Let's fly by night.
Let's fly by night.
