Here Tonight

written by Gene Clark

 

G    Am           D                    G
It's ten PM and I should have made the road tonight
    Am                   D                   G
The moon was out and the clouds came in and took it's light
    C               D     C                     D
My suitcase is over there somehow I  just don't care
        C                D                  G
Cause I don't want to be anywhere but right here tonight
    Am                    D                   G
The rains came down and I should have made an early plane
      Am                  D                    G
Where I'd rather be if it can't be seen then I can't explain
C               D          C                D
It's so warm in here and I want to hold you near
          C             D          G                    Am D G Am D G
And there is no pain or fear right here tonight
           Am              D                  G
With tomorrows dawn I will carry on what I've set aside
     Am           D              G
It's not a matter of my faith or of my pride
   C                D       C                 D
It just seems so insane  to strike out in the rain
             C         D          G
When it's so easy to remain right here tonight
