OPEN ALL NIGHT from Nebraska 


INTRO:  F#


Well, I had the carburettor, baby, cleaned and checked 
With her line blown out she's humming like a turbojet
            B
Propped her up in the backyard on concrete blocks 
      F#
For a new clutch plate and a new set of shocks
         C#
Took her down to the carwash, check the plugs and points
          F#
Well, I'm going out tonight I'm gonna rock that joint
Early North Jersey industrial skyline 
I'm a all-set cobra jet creeping through the nighttime
B
Gotta find a gas station, gotta find a payphone 
     F#
This turnpike sure is spooky at night when you're all alone
C#
Gotta hit the gas, baby, I'm running late
         F#
This New Jersey in the morning like a lunar landscape


BREAK:  B  C#


         F#
Now, the boss don't dig me, so he put me on the nightshift
Takes me two hours to get back to where my baby lives
       B
In the wee wee hours your mind gets hazy 
      F#
Radio relay towers, won't you lead me to my baby?
C#
Underneath the overpass, trooper hits his party light switch
F#
Goodnight good luck one two power shift
I met Wanda when she was employed behind the counter at route 60 
          B
Bob's Big Boy Fried Chicken on the front seat, she's sitting in my lap
      F#
We're wiping our fingers on a Texaco roadmap
C#                                                F#
I remember Wanda up on scrap metal hill with them big brown eyes 
That make your heart stand still


BREAK:  B  C#


         F#
Well, at five AM oil pressure's sinking fast
I make a pit stop, wipe the windshield, check the gas
B
Gotta call my baby on the telephone
        F#
Let her know that her daddy's coming on home
    C#
Sit tight, little mama, I'm a coming round 
      F#
I got three more hours, but I'm covering ground
Your eyes get itchy in the wee wee hours 
Sun's just a red ball rising over them refinery towers
B
Radio's jammed up with gospel stations 
F#
Lost souls calling long distance salvation
C#
Hey, mister DJ, wont ya hear my last prayer 
F#
Hey, ho, rock'n'roll, deliver me from nowhere
Hey a lay da di da lay da di da da yodle
Hey a lay da di da lay da di da da yodle
B
Hey a lay da di da lay da di da da yodle

NOTES: 

TUNING: The guitar is slightly out of tune. Less than a semitone flat. If you 
don't have a capo the best way to play the song is in 'E' (F#=E, B=A and C#=B) 

INTRO: The whole song is played with a delay on the guitar. There is almost 
definately a capo on the second fret aswell.
