Guitar chords with lyrics

Intro:
G  D  G  D

Verse:

     G
So, we're drinking and we're dancing


G
And the band is really happening


    Em
And the Johnny Walker wisdom's running high


    Bm
And my very sweet companion


Bm
She's an angel of compassion


   Em
She's rubbing half the world against her thigh


   C
Every drinker every dancer


C
Lifts a happy face to thank her


    G        B        Em
And the fiddler fiddles something so sublime


Verse:

    D
And the women tear their blouses off


D
And the men they dance on the polka-dots


     C
And it's partner found and it's partner lost


C
And it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops


   G
It's closing time


    C
And the women tear their blouses off


C
And the men they dance on the polka-dots


     G           B
And it's partner found and it's partner lost


     Em          C
And it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops


   G
It's closing time


D
Closing time


Verse:

      G
Well, we're lonely, we're romantic


G
Society's psyched with acid


    Em
And the Holy Spirit's crying, "Where's the beef?"


    Bm
And the moon is swimming naked


Bm
And the summer night is fragrant


    Em
With a mighty expectation of relief


   C
So we struggle and we stagger


C
Down the snakes and up the ladder


    G        B       Em
To the tower where the blessed hours chime


Verse:

   D
And I swear it happened just like this


D
A sigh, a cry and a hungry kiss


  C
The gates of love they budged an inch


C
I can't say much has happened since


  G
But closing time


 C
I swear it happened just like this


C
A sigh, a cry and a hungry kiss


  G         B
The gates of love they budged an inch


    Em         C
But you can't say much has happened since


   G
Since closing time


D
Closing time


Bridge:

 Em
I loved you for your beauty


Em
But that doesn't make a fool of me


Bm
You were in it for your beauty too


   Em
And I loved you for your body


Em
There's a voice that sounds like god to me


 A
Declaring that your body's really you


Instrumental:
D C G/B D/A

Verse:

   C
But I loved you when our love was blessed


C
And I love you now there's nothing left


  G      B      Em
But sorrow and a sense of overtime


   D
And I missed you since the place got wrecked


D
And I just don't care what happens next


C
Looks like freedom but it feels like death


C
It's something in between, I guess


   G
It's closing time


D
Closing time


Verse:

     G
Oh, we're drinking and we're dancing


G
Yet there's nothing really happening


   Em
This place is dead as heaven on a Saturday night


    Bm
And my very close companion


Bm
Gets me humping, gets me laughing


    Em
She's a hundred but she's wearing something tight


 Em
(Tight, tight, tight, tight, tight, tight)


   C
And I lift my glass to the awful truth


C
But you can't reveal to the ears of youth


 G        B       Em
Except to say, it isn't worth a dime


    D
And the whole damn place goes crazy twice


D
It's once for the Devil and it's once for the Christ


    C
But the boss don't like those dizzy heights


C
We're busted in the blinding lights


   G
It's closing time


   D       G
It's closing time


Outro:

G
(Closing, drinking, Devil, dancing)


D       G
Closing time


D       G
Closing time


D       G
Closing time
