   Midnight howlin' at the moon and I been
    Am                D        
   Goin'  out when I want to,    (and I'm)

   Well, I never been no Valentino
          G              D7sus4

    G      D7/F#   Em                   Am                D        
   Left me for a trumpet player, but it didn't get me down

   He was wanted for assault,    and though he
    G                       D7sus4     
   Said it weren't his fault
                 G      Em       Am      D     G   C/G  G   
   You know the coppers rode him right outa    town
           G                D7sus4                  G   D7sus4

           G     D7/F#  Em                    Am       
   Now as long as I can be with me,  we get along so well, I can 
            hardly believe it 
    G                D7sus4
