Tonight's the night,        tonight's the night,





Bruce Berry was a workin' man;

RIFF 2/RIFF 4

He used to load that Econoline Van.



A sparkle was in his eyes,

RIFF 2/RIFF 4

but his life was in his hand.



Late at night when the people were gone 

RIFF 5 (w/ guitar impro)

he used to pick up my guitar



and sing a song in a shaky voice

RIFF 2

that was real as the day was long.



RIFF1                 RIFF 2/RIFF4

Tonight's the night,        tonight's the night,

RIFF1                 RIFF 2/RIFF4

Tonight's the night,        tonight's the night,



RIFF 5, w/ guitar impro

Early in the mornin' at the break of day

he used to sleep until the afternoon.

If you never heard him sing,

I guess you won't too soon.

'Cause people let me tell you,

it sent a chill up and down my spine

when I picked up the telephone

and heard that he died out on the mainline.

Bruce Berry was a workin' man;

He used to load that Econoline Van.

Well late at night when the people were gone 

he used to pick up my guitar
