    Somebody's gonna hurt someone before the night is through

    G                            C               G                                    D

    somebody's gonna come undone, there's nothing we can do.

    G                             Em                  G                    Em   

    Everybody wants to touch somebody, if it takes all night.

    Lord, I know.

     

    Verse 2:

    G                            Em            G                                              Em   

    Some people like to stay out late, some folks can't hold out that long.

    G                             C                  G                                    D

    But nobody wants to go home now, there's too much going on.

    G                          Em            G                                   Em       

    This night is gonna last forever, last all, last all summer long,

    G                               C                 G                              D (2)

    some time before the sun comes up the radio is gonna play that song.

    so turn out the light, and we'll get it right,

                                 G                              D7                         G (2)

    there's gonna be a heartache tonight, a heartache tonight I know.
