D C#m Bm          A             G  
         Some old hotel room in Memphis
Bm           A                G
   I see the city through the rain
Bm          A       G     D/F#
   I'm just chasing me my time
Em                      A
   And remembering some pain

Bm           A          G
   See there once was a boy
Bm            A               G
   And on the street he'd surely die
Bm        A         G           D/F#
   So the nightbird took him in
Em                              A
   And she taught him how to fly


A                    G
   See the nightbird softly fly
                  D
Why does she fly alone?
                E            C        G
Is the moonlight just a flame for her memory?
         D     C#m
Now she's gone


D C#m Bm          A             G  
         Two bit bars and honky tonks
Bm     A               G
   Any pleasure can be found
Bm          A       G        D/F#
   You can get just what you want
Em                      A
   If you lay your money down

Bm           A                G
   And loney sailors do their drinking
Bm            A             G
   My, my, my how the brave men do die
Bm         A         G           D/F#
   And the nightbird sells her pleasures
Em                      A
   Bringing tears to my eyes


A                    G
   See the nightbird softly fly
                  D
Why does she fly alone?
                E            C        G
Is the moonlight just a flame for her memory?
         D     C#m
Now she's gone


D C#m Bm          A             G  
         So I guess I'll go out walking
Bm       A                 G
   Lord, let the rain keep falling down
Bm          A       G         D/F#
   I guess I'll go chase some memories
Em                      A
   On the dark side of town


A                    G
   See the nightbird softly fly
                  D
Why does she fly alone?
                E            C        G
Is the moonlight just a flame for her memory?
         D     C#m
Now she's gone
