10,000 Maniacs
Because The Night,
Chords by Ian C.T. vom Saal
As recorded by the 10,000 Maniacs on their 'MTV Unplugged Album' in 1993.

This is one of my Favorite songs done by 10,000 Maniacs from their MTV
Unplugged Album. Originally written by Bruce Springsteen & Patti Smith, this
version is a bit different, utilizing some different words & emphasizing
some
different changes, chords, & accents.  The Instrumental Solo is the only
part
of the song that I tried to leave open to interpretation because it was done
on
volin, everything else is pretty much dead on.  It is rather difficult to
emulate
the beginning & ending of this song since it's done on piano, but I feel
that
what I have here works well.  I usually use a lot of chord substitutions, so
this
is just a very elemental version of what I play when I play this song out. 
I blend
fingerpicked chords & strummed chords throughout the song for dynamic
purposes - this adds a little more color - please play this song how you
like,
what I have below is just a rough guide . . . but it is rather accurate.
