D5 F

Wide awake in the middle of the night

 

G D5

I wonder how she's feelin'

 

F C

Is it just a trick of the light

 

G D5

Or is her ceiling peeling?

 

F F

She's sitting up in bed, shakin' her head

 

G D5

At a copy of "True Confessions"

 

F C

Ooh, it must seem like a fairy tale

 

G D5

To a woman of her profession

 

[chorus]

 

F->G F->G

But was I all right? (was I all right?)

 

C F

Did I take you to the height of ecstasy?

 

F->G F->G

Was I all right? (was I all right?)

 

C F

Did a shadow of emotion cross your face

 

D5

Or was it just another trick of the light?

 

[Bass solo: over verse chords]

 

[chorus]

But was I all right? (was I all right?)

Did I take you to the height of ecstasy?

Was I all right? (was I all right?)

Did a shadow of emotion cross your face

Or was it just another trick of the light?

 

Come on, tell me

 

F C Dm

What's a nice girl like you doin' in a place like this?

 

Bb F C

They don't make girls like you no more

 

Dm Bb

And I'd like to get to know you

 

G Bb

On closer terms than this

 

G C

But I guess you've heard it all before

 

[opening riff]

 

D F

Lady of the night

 

G D

Won't you steal away with me?

 

F C

Lady of the night

 

G D

Won't you steal away with me?

 

F F

The money's lyin' on the floor, she looks at me

 

G D

Shakes her head and sighs

 

F

Out of time, out the door

 

C G D

Red light shinin' in my eyes

 

But was I all right? (was I all right?)

Did I take you to the height of ecstasy?

Was I all right? (was I all right?)

Did a shadow of emotion cross your face

All right?

 

But was I all right?

All right?
