NIGHTCLUB HEAVEN
(I WANT TO GO OUT TONIGHT)

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


* = chord has no 3rd


 INTRO:  E*  (syncopated strum)


              E*                                  E(-5)*
     I.  it's getting dark behind the neon light
                E*
         like a velvet painting of a satellite.
             E*                                       E(-5)*
         put down the magazine, it'll be there later.
                 E*
         there's more to life than a full refrigerator.


           D
CHORUS:  I want to go out tonight.
           A
         I want to go out tonight.
           D
         I want to go out,
                          E
         want to go out tonight.
              D
            I want to go out tonight.
              A
            I want to go out tonight.
              D
            I want to go out,
                             E
            want to go out tonight.


INSTRUMENTAL:  E (no 3rd)  (melody played in octaves)

         E*                            E(-5)*
    II.  as the walls begin to shrink
             E*
         and spiral like a roller rink,
           E*                          E(-5)*
         a record skips on the radio,
             E*
         the radio, the radio, the radio, the radio...


         /// REPEAT CHORUS and INSTRUMENTAL ///


         G#(add+5)
BRIDGE:  Lucinda stands motionless

         with no less emotion
         F#7(add4)
         than the Bolshoi ballet.
             G#(add+5)
         her eyes will tell a story,

          her voice will be the cast.
           F#7(add4)           Aadd9*   E*
         tomorrow she will go away.


         E*                          C#m7/E
ENDING:  cold inertia molds my ways
              Aadd9*                       E*
         like mountain springs in ice cube trays.
         E*                              C#m7/E
         when my life becomes December,
           E/A
         I need a summer to remember,
                               E*
         need a summer to remember.


INSTRUMENTAL:  E* - C#m7/E - Aadd9*
               E* - C#m7/E - Aadd9* - E/A - E*
