Guitar Tab : On The Streets Tonight

Written by Michael Head
Tabbed by S. McNally
Verse 1
Bm                     A
Terrorist son you know he's a real hoodlum
G                        F#m
He's on the run from the local solution
Em                   D
Eating cakes and the Rochester Tea Rooms 
C                 Bm
On the streets tonight
Verse 2
Suicide Pat you know she's a real trooper
She's got a gun and she knows how to use it
Getting rich and buying Peruvian
On the streets tonight
Verse 3
Sammy and Patty well they did some cruising
They fell in love and things got confusing
Little Daddy's gonna pay for the honeymoon
On the streets tonight
Em         Bm
Oh, how we laughed
    Em                             Bm
The priest and all the guests they clapped
         A               G
Then the bride grabs the mic
Verse 4
Stick another bullet in the cake while you're eating
You're all phonies and you know you've been cheated
Sweet dreams honey I'm leaving
On the streets tonight
    C              Bm
I'm on the streets tonight
End on Bm
