/ C - - - / G - - - / Em - - - / F - - - /

 

C                 G               Am            F         

      Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world

C                        G                          Em        F

     She took the midnight train going anywhere

C             G     Am                            F

    Just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit

C               G                                Em      F

     He took the midnight train going anywhere

 

/ C - - - / G - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

/ C - - - / G - - - / Em - - - / F - - - /

 

C                           G          Am                             F

     A singer in a smoky room, a smell of wine and cheap perfume

C                                     G                            Em                 F

     For a smile they can share the night, it goes on and on and on and on

 

Chorus:

     F (2)             C (2)

Strangers waiting up and down the boulevard

           F (2)                             C (2)

Their shadows searching in the night

       F (2)             C (2)

Streetlight, people, living just to find emotion

  F (2)                              Chorus Riff

Hiding, somewhere in the night

 

/ C - - - / G - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

 

C                     G                  Am              F

    Working hard to get my fill, everybody wants a thrill

C                       G                              Em               F

    Paying anything to roll the dice, just one more time

C                    G                     Am                          F        

   Some will win, some will lose, some were born to sing the blues

C                         G                         Em                 F

    Oh, the movie never ends; it goes on and on and on and on

Don't stop believing hold on to the feeling

     C           G           Em      F
