WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


* = (add 9)             ** = (add 9)(no 3rd)


         INTRO:  E*

                 D**
             I.  hiding in the tall grass,
                 Em
                 moaning in the night...
                 B7
                 drinking from a tall glass
                    A**           B7
                 of passion and delight...


                 D**
            II.  crossing a cold stream,
                 Em
                 sitting by the fire...
                 B7
                 like a thunderbolt dream
                     A**         B7
                 you kindle my desire.


                     E*
        CHORUS:  who lives on earth tonight?
                     Esus4
                 who lives on earth tonight?
                      E*
                 only you and I, my love,
                      D6**       D**
                 only you and I
                 A**             Em
                 live on earth tonight,
                 A**             Em
                 live on earth tonight.


  INSTRUMENTAL:  D - Em - D - Em


                      D
        BRIDGE:  some people are out driving around...
                 Em
                 soldiers guarding forts...
                 D
                 or night shift at the diner...
                 Em
                 milkmen hauling quarts.
                         D
                 they're watching midnight movies,
                    Em
                 or old reruns on TV...
                 B7
                 some of them are actually sleeping...
                 A**              B7
                 now look at them and tell me:


                 /// REPEAT CHORUS ///


                 D**
           III.  side-by-side we lie there,
                 Em
                 under the Milky Way.
                 B7
                 I would gladly die there,
                 A**               B7
                 having lived this day.


                 /// REPEAT CHORUS ///


                 A**
        ENDING:  live on earth
                 Em
                 tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight.
