Verse 1:
A#                       C        Dm
There's a shadow hanging over the valley
A#       C
Total eclipse of the moon
Closing up the gates of the city
                 Gm    A7
The wind plays a wild tune

Verse 2:
A#                C             Dm
Don't you put the lock upon the window
A#                C
Don't you put the bar on the door
Don't you cry for the rain in the sky
                Gm      A7
You've seen the storm before

(Repeat Intro.)

A#               C               Dm
Well, what's the matter with you baby
A#               C
Baby, what's the matter now
Tell me what's the matter your running in the shadows
                        Gm       A7
Every time you hear the wild man howl

(Repeat chorus, intro, then chorus twice while solo is being played,
then intro again.)

Verse 3:
A#              C         Dm
Lightning gonna strike at midnight
A#            C
Thunder gonna shake the ground
Don't you flinch don't give an inch
             Gm         A7
Just let the flood come down

(Repeat chorus twice, then intro.)


A# | C | Dm
