The weekend    (video)

 

    G - C - D7

 

          G                                              C

1. A couple of days isn't a very long time.

                       G                                                                   C

    Why can't I just walk away ? I used to be good at goodbye.

Am                        G     - Am                   Em

    But out on the water,         under the stars,

Am              Em                    D                  C

    I let the moonlight play a trick on my heart.

 

  D7                                      G

You had some fun for the weekend,

                                       C

but I'll be in love for the rest of my life.

  D7                                  G

You took me out to the deep end,

                                   C

and I fell right over, I didn't think twice.

 D#                        F                    Bb

I finally got something worth keepin'.

      Bb                             D#

and if I can't have you tonight,

     D#       F            G

at least I had the weekend.

 

+  G - C - D7

 

            G                                                               C

2. The radio plays, the sound of the waves rollin' in,

               G                                                              C

    the smell of the night sure can get under your skin.

Am                  G         - Am                         Em

    Just for a moment,          I held you too close.

Am                           Em                       D            C

    now I'm all out of time, and I don't wanna let go.

 

+  CHORUS

 

    D#                                              F           G

+      How much can happen in a night or two ?

D#                                        F           Dm         C

    I guess it's all depending on your point of view.

 

  D7                                      G

You had some fun for the weekend,

                                       C

                                   C

and I fell right over, I didn't think twice.
