Lyrics:

A             E            F#m
The night she is a true companion

D            B
They shuffle in

D             E
They hear the sound

A              E
But by night's end

              F#m
It's night's abandon

D                    B
You look across the floor

D             E
Ain't anyone around


D       E
Closing time

A  E        F#m
Unplug them people

D             E
And send them home

              A
It's closing time


A                   E                 F#m
Now Kenny he's been mixing sound all evening

D           B
Sometimes I think that boy

D               E
He ain't got no ears

A              E
And Kathy's laughing

F#m
Kathy's always laughing

D             B
Well keep on laughing Kathy

D                   E
Just make it out of here


D        E
Closing time

A   E         F#m
Unplug them people

D              E
And send them home

              A
It's closing time


A               E                 Fm#
So stack those chairs upon those tables

D                B        D       E
And stack those empties upon that bar

A                E
And count your money

F#m
And count my money

D              B
And hear those bottles ringing

D                  E
You know where you are


D        E
Closing time

A  E         F#m
Unplug them people

D             E
And send them home

              A
It's closing time


D                      E
The night's all that's left behind

A        E             F#m
You take your part and I'll take mine

D         E
And go on home

             A
It's closing time

Introduction:

[G] [/D] [/G] [D]  

Ah, we're [G]drinking and we're dancing

and the band is really happening

and the [Em]Johnny Walker wisdom running high,

And my [Bm]very sweet companion,

she's the Angel of Compassion

and she's [Em]rubbing half the world against her thigh.

And every [C]drinker, every dancer

lifts a happy face to thank her

and the [G]fiddler fiddles [B7]something so sub[Em]lime

all the [D]women tear their blouses off

the men they dance on the polka dots

and it's [C]partner found and it's partner lost

and it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops

it's [G]CLOSING TIME

Yeah, the [C]women tear their blouses off

the men they dance on the polka dots

and it's [G]partner found and it's [B7]partner lost

and it's [Em]hell to pay when the [C]fiddler stops

it's [G]CLOSING TIME[D]

We're [G]lonely, we're romantic

and the cider's laced with acid

and the [Em]Holy Spirit's crying, "Where's the beef?"

And the [Bm]moon is swimming naked

and the summer night is fragrant

with a [Em]mighty expectation of relief

So we [C]struggle and we stagger

down the snakes and up the ladder

to the [G]tower where the [B7]blessed hours [Em]chime

and I [D]swear it happened just like this:

a sigh, a cry, a hungry kiss

the [C]Gates of Love they budged an inch

I can't say much has happened since

but [G]CLOSING TIME

I [C]swear it happned just like this:

a sigh, a cry, a hungry kiss

the [G]Gates of Love they [B7]budged an inch

I [Em]can't say much has [C]happened since

(can't say much has happned since, can't say much has happened since)

but [G]CLOSING TIME, [D]CLOSING TIME

I [Em]loved you for your beauty

but that doesn't make a fool of me

[Bm]you were in it for your beauty too

and I [Em]loved you for your body

there's a voice that sounds like God to me

[A]declaring (declaring) declaring ([A7]declaring)

[D]declaring that you're body's really you (really really really really)

I [C]loved you when our love was blessed

I love you now there's nothing left

but [G]sorrow and a [B7]sense of over[Em]time

and I [D]miss you since the place got wrecked

but I just don't care what happens next

[C]looks like freedom but it feels like death

it's something in between, I guess

it's [G]CLOSING TIME

Yeah. I [C]miss you since the place got wrecked

by the winds of change and the weeds of sex

[G]looks like freedom but it [B7]feels like death

it's [Em]something in be[C]tween, I guess

it's [G]CLOSING TIME[D]

Yeah, we're [G]drinking and we're dancing

but there's nothing really happening

The [Em]place is dead as Heaven on a Saturday night

And my [Bm]very close companion

gets me fumbing gets me laughing

she's a [Em]hundred but she's wearing something tight

And I [C]lift my glass to the Awful Truth

which you can't reveal to the Ears of Youth

ex[G]cept to say it [B7]isn't worth a [Em]dime

And the [D]whole damn place goes crazy twice

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

but the [C]Boss don't like these dizzy heights

we're busted in the blinding lights

of [G]CLOSING TIME

The [C]whole damn place goes crazy twice

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

but the [G]Boss don't like these [B7]dizzy heights

we're [Em]busted in the [C]blinding lights

(busted in the blinding lights)

busted in the blinding lights

of [G]CLOSING TIME, [D]CLOSING TIME

Oh, the [G]women tear their blouses off

and the men they dance on the polka dots, it's [D]CLOSING TIME

And it's [G]partner found, and it's partner lost

and it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops

it's [D]CLOSING TIME

I [G]swear it happned just like this:

A sigh, a cry, a hungry kiss, it's [D]CLOSING TIME

The [G]gates of love they budged an inch

I can't say much has happned since but [D]CLOSING TIME

I [G]loved you when our love was blessed

I love you now, there's nothing left but [D]CLOSING TIME

And I [G]missed you since our place gor wrecked

by the winds of change and the weeds of sex, it's [D]CLOSING TIME

CLOSING TIME (L. Cohen)

Introduction:

[G] [/D] [/G] [D]  

Ah, we're [G]drinking and we're dancing

and the band is really happening

and the [Em]Johnny Walker wisdom running high,

And my [Bm]very sweet companion,

she's the Angel of Compassion

and she's [Em]rubbing half the world against her thigh.

And every [C]drinker, every dancer

lifts a happy face to thank her

and the [G]fiddler fiddles [B7]something so sub[Em]lime

all the [D]women tear their blouses off

the men they dance on the polka dots

and it's [C]partner found and it's partner lost

and it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops

it's [G]CLOSING TIME

Yeah, the [C]women tear their blouses off

the men they dance on the polka dots

and it's [G]partner found and it's [B7]partner lost

and it's [Em]hell to pay when the [C]fiddler stops

it's [G]CLOSING TIME[D]

We're [G]lonely, we're romantic

and the cider's laced with acid

and the [Em]Holy Spirit's crying, "Where's the beef?"

And the [Bm]moon is swimming naked

and the summer night is fragrant

with a [Em]mighty expectation of relief

So we [C]struggle and we stagger

down the snakes and up the ladder

to the [G]tower where the [B7]blessed hours [Em]chime

and I [D]swear it happened just like this:

a sigh, a cry, a hungry kiss

the [C]Gates of Love they budged an inch

I can't say much has happened since

but [G]CLOSING TIME

I [C]swear it happned just like this:

a sigh, a cry, a hungry kiss

the [G]Gates of Love they [B7]budged an inch

I [Em]can't say much has [C]happened since

(can't say much has happned since, can't say much has happened since)

but [G]CLOSING TIME, [D]CLOSING TIME

I [Em]loved you for your beauty

but that doesn't make a fool of me

[Bm]you were in it for your beauty too

and I [Em]loved you for your body

there's a voice that sounds like God to me

[A]declaring (declaring) declaring ([A7]declaring)

[D]declaring that you're body's really you (really really really really)

I [C]loved you when our love was blessed

I love you now there's nothing left

but [G]sorrow and a [B7]sense of over[Em]time

and I [D]miss you since the place got wrecked

but I just don't care what happens next

[C]looks like freedom but it feels like death

it's something in between, I guess

it's [G]CLOSING TIME

Yeah. I [C]miss you since the place got wrecked

[G]looks like freedom but it [B7]feels like death

it's [Em]something in be[C]tween, I guess

it's [G]CLOSING TIME[D]

Yeah, we're [G]drinking and we're dancing

but there's nothing really happening

The [Em]place is dead as Heaven on a Saturday night

And my [Bm]very close companion

gets me fumbing gets me laughing

she's a [Em]hundred but she's wearing something tight

And I [C]lift my glass to the Awful Truth

which you can't reveal to the Ears of Youth

ex[G]cept to say it [B7]isn't worth a [Em]dime

And the [D]whole damn place goes crazy twice

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

but the [C]Boss don't like these dizzy heights

we're busted in the blinding lights

of [G]CLOSING TIME

The [C]whole damn place goes crazy twice

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

but the [G]Boss don't like these [B7]dizzy heights

we're [Em]busted in the [C]blinding lights

(busted in the blinding lights)

busted in the blinding lights

of [G]CLOSING TIME, [D]CLOSING TIME

Oh, the [G]women tear their blouses off

and the men they dance on the polka dots, it's [D]CLOSING TIME

And it's [G]partner found, and it's partner lost

and it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops

it's [D]CLOSING TIME

I [G]swear it happned just like this:

A sigh, a cry, a hungry kiss, it's [D]CLOSING TIME

The [G]gates of love they budged an inch

I can't say much has happned since but [D]CLOSING TIME

I [G]loved you when our love was blessed

I love you now, there's nothing left but [D]CLOSING TIME

And I [G]missed you since our place gor wrecked
