                Here's the version of Dark End of the Street that I've got - learned it from
a Percy Sledge recording though, not the Commitments soundtrack.

Dark End of the Street

         G      F#min   Emin
At the dark end of the street
         G      F#min   Emin
That's where we'd always meet
             G             C        G
Hiding in shadows where we don't belong
               C       D        G
Living in darkness to hide our wrong
C       G            C      D       G
You and me, at the dark end of the street
C       G
You and me

             G           F#min     Emin
I know that time's gonna take it's toll
             G                 F#min        Emin
We've got to give back all the love that we stole
        G          C         G
It's a sin and we know it's wrong
           C          D         G
Oh but our love keeps coming on strong
C     G             C       D      G
Steal away, to the dark end of the street
C     G

        G
They're going to find us
        F#min
They're going to find us
        Emin
They're going to find us
C        G
Oh someday
C       G           C       D      G
You and me, at the dark end of the street
C       G
You and me

              G#       Gmin      Fmin
And when the daylight time comes around
          G#        Gmin     Fmin
And if by chance we walk downtown
              G#        C#       G#
If you should see me just walk on by
     C#             D#    G#
But darling, please don't cry
C#            G#           C#       D#     G#
Tonight we'll meet, at the dark end of the street
C#      G#


I usually don't do the key change for the final verse, but it was there in
the original so I thought I'd include it for the purists in the bunch.  BTW,
the lyrics may be a little screwy, my favourite version of this tune was 
recorded by Richard Thompson and my memory of the words may include some of
his own idiosyncratic choices.
