Verse 1 :

Cmaj7           B7             B     Em                               G7
Rain on the roof 'n time on my hands,it sure seemed quiet out there'n radio land
                    C                             Cm
They call me at the all-night station, make their special dedications
    G               D/F#                            Em           G7/D
And I do my best to play their request, when it's a desperate situation
C                        D4___D
This was a desperate situation

Refrain :

    G/B C                   D4___D
I'm Mr. Midnight alone and blue
            G            D/F#                Em                G7/D
The brokenhearted call me up when they don't know what else to do
      C                          D         D6/D#       Em___G7
Every song is a reminder, of the love that they once knew
         C        D4          D
I'm Mr. Midnight,      can I play a song for you?

Fill : | Em - - - | Em - - - |

Verse 2 :

Cmaj7               B7             B
"Caller on the line, could you please hold on?"
Em                         G7
I recognized her voice the minute I picked up the phone
         C                                 Cm
Should I tell her that it's me or leave it at a memory
        G                     D/F#                 Em         G7/D
Haven't been myself since the day she left and I'm never gonna be,
C                  D4___D
I'm forever gonna be

Refrain :

G/B C                   D4___D
Mr. Midnight alone and blue
            G            D/F#                Em                G7/D
The brokenhearted call me up when they don't know what else to do
      C                          D         D6/D#       Em___G7
Every song is a reminder, of the love that they once knew
         C        D4          D
I'm Mr. Midnight,      can I play a song for you?

Fill : | Em - - - | Em - - - |

Bridge :

Cmaj7              B7           B
Imagine my surprise when she spoke my name
Em                                                      G7
She said could you tell him that I love him and I wish things could be the same?
       C                                Cm
Then a voice I never knew, said "Honey, who you talking to?" - Pause -

Refrain :

G/B C                   D4___D
Mr. Midnight alone and blue
            G            D/F#                Em                G7/D
The brokenhearted call me up when they don't know what else to do
      C                          D         D6/D#       Em   G7
Every song is a reminder, of the love that they once knew
         C        D4          D
I'm Mr. Midnight,      can I play a song for you?

Outro : | Em - - - | Em - - - |Em - - - | Em -> Upstroke |


Comments :

If you play this song on a guitar only, then you should better play a standard
G7 instead of the G7/D chord, because it's easier to play and sounds better this
way, even though in the original recording the bass is playing a D at this part.

Additional Tabulature :

Even though this is a piano song, you can do a nice fingerpicking on the guitar
on it to make it sound like the original recording. This is what I figured out
to make it sound the best for me :

The Em parts can be played like the following. The piano melody is built into
this picking :


e |-0-------0-3-0---5-------7-------|-0-------0-3-0---5-------3-------|
b |-0---0---0-0-0---0---0---0---0---|-0---0---0-0-0---0---0---0---0---|
g |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
E |-0---------------0---------------|-0---------------0---------------|
    Em                                Em

  Play this two times during the Intro and repeat it through the Fills and the
  Outro.


The fingerpicking through the rest of the song could be something like this :


e |-----------------0---------------|---------------------------------|
b |-0-------0-------0-------0-------|-0-------0-------4-------4-------|
g |-0-------0---------------0-------|-2-------2-------4-------4-------|
D |-----2-------2---------------2---|-----1---------------4-----------|
A |-3-------------------3-----------|-2-----------2---2-----------2---|
E |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
    Cmaj7                             B7              B

                  Rain on the roof             Time on my hands

  Continue this type of fingerpicking throughout the rest of the song.
