As requested, here is the crd for because the night (the real version,
not the 10,000 maniacs one) which hopefully will wind up at nevada under
both bruce springsteen and patti smith.

Because the Night - Words and Music by Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith

I'm lifting this straight out of Springsteen Complete...sounds much
better on piano/keyboard than solo guitar IMO, but here it is
anyway...all chords are either open (D,G,A,C) or barres near the nut
(F#,Bm).

Intro: Bm, G, A, Bm, G, A, Bm

Verse:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/patti_smith/because_the_night_crd.html ]
Bm      G          A         Bm
Take me now, baby, here as I am.
	G	      A    Bm
Pull me close try and understand.
	  G		 A      Bm
Desire is hunger, is the fire I breathe.
	  G	     A        Bm
Love is a banquet on which we feed.
G       A            D    A
Come on now, try and understand
    Bm    G                     A
the way I feel when I'm in your hand.
D       G                A
Take my hand; come under cover.
     C                   Bm		     F#
They can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now.


Chorus:

Bm      G                 A
Because the night belongs to lovers.
Bm      G                 A  Bm
Because the night belongs to lust.
        G                 A
Because the night belongs to lovers.
Bm      G		  A  Bm
Because the night belongs to us.


Second verse:

Have I doubt when I'm alone?
Love is a ring on the telephone.
Love is an angel disguised as lust,
here in our bed until the morning comes.
Come on now, try and understand
the way I feel under your command.
Take my hand as the sun descends.
They can't touch you now, can't touch you now, can't touch you now.

Repeat chorus

Ending:

     D    A    	    D	       A      		   Bm   A
With love we sleep; with doubt the viscious circle turn and turns.
D	A	     Bm    A	   D        A
Without you I cannot live, forgive the yearning, burning
    G     D	   G
I believe in time, too real to feel,
   Bm		 D	       G              F#
so touch me now, touch me now, touch me now.

Repeat chorus and fade.
