                                           "On A Quiet Night"
                              (P.F. Sloan)


	(harpsichord arr. for guitar):

	 v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v

Verse 1:

	Emaj7 F#m7 Emaj7/G# Amaj7
	On     a     quiet  night
	Gmaj7   Amaj7    Emaj7            Bsus4
	You can hear the rustling of the leaves
	Emaj7 F#m7 Emaj7/G# Amaj7
	On     a     quiet  night
	Gmaj7   Amaj7        Emaj7         Bsus4
	Distant voices carry softly in the breeze

Chorus 1:

	And I'm inside my room
	Captured in a moment's thought
	Gmaj7                         F#m7
	Strumming on a chord from my guitar
	A/B [N.C.; harpsichord as per intro]
	Silently, silently (silently)
	So silently (so silently)

Verse 2:

	On a quiet night
	Time hangs heavy in the air just like a cloud
	I'm lying on my bed
	Scratching my head, wondering what it's about

Chorus 2:

	Are we all minstrels
	Playing in a three-ring circus
	Searching for a purpose that's not there
	Silently, silently (silently)
	So silently (so silently, so silently, so silently)


	 v   v   v   v

	D#7              G#m
	    Everybody's thinking
	      F#                     B
	Gotta get ahead, gotta get ahead
	D#7              G#m
	    Everybody's drinking
	F#                   A
	Hurrying, worrying, playing the game
	All acting the same
	   B       A             G#m   F#m
	As I look out through my windowpane

Verse 3:

	On a quiet night
	The wind, it can play tricks on your ear
	Like some unsolved mystery
	We all guess at the ending, but nobody comes near

[repeat chorus 2]


	A/B (harpsichord, recorder, drums, backward tambourine to fade)
