Stay the night    (video)    (live)

 

                                         C     - G     - Am       - F

    C - G - Am - F          +      O.....h, o…....h, o......h, hey!

 

   G                   Am                            F

1.    It’s 72 degrees, zero chance of rain,

                                   C - G

    it’s been a perfect da.....y,

G                                          Am                                 F

    we’re all spinning on our heels, so far away from real,

                      C - G

    in Californi.........a.

D                                                         F                      Dm

     We watched the sunset from our car, we all took it in,

                                                 F                                 G                 C

    and by the time that it was dark, you and me had something, yeah.

 

                                         G                                        Am

And if this is what we’ve got, then what we’ve got is gold,

                                           F                                     C

we’re shining bright and I want you, I want you to know :

                                    G                                         Am

The morning’s on its way, our friends all say goodbye,

                                       F                               - - - - - -   C

there’s nowhere else to go, I hope that you’ll stay the night,

  - G                           Am       - F

o.....h, you’ll stay the night, o....h, yeah !

 

   G                                            Am                                      F

2.    We’ve been singing Billie Jean, mixing vodka with caffeine,

                                                    C - G

    we’ve got strangers stopping b.......y.

G                                          Am                                                F

    And though you’re out of tune, girl, you blow my mind, you do,

                                   C                        G

    and I’ll say I don’t wanna say good night.

D                                          - F  

    If there’s no quiet corner        to get to know each other,

Dm                                            F                      G               C

    then there’s no hurry, I’m a patient man as you’ll discover.

 

+  CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     D - F                        C     G  Am G       D

+             Just like the song on our radio set,

F                             C      G        AmG   D

    we’ll share the shelter of my single bed,

F                  C          G                 Am      G     F                G - G7

    but it’s a different tune that’s stuck in my head and it goe.......s :

 

C                                   G                                        Am

    If this is what we’ve got, then what we’ve got is gold,

                                           F                                     C

we’re shining bright and I want you, I want you to know :

                                    G                                         Am

The morning’s on its way, our friends all say goodbye,

                                       F                                             C

there’s nowhere else to go, I hope that you’ll stay the night,

 

+  repeat CHORUS
