			"Midnight Confessions"
			     (Lou Josie)

Originally done by the Evergreen Blues (Mercury 72756) earlier in 1968; the
Grass Roots' arrangement is more-or-less a note-for-note copy of theirs.

	  v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v

	 G#m                E     F#  A      [5/4 bar]
	  v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v   v
	|---------4-6-4---|-----------------|-----------------X---|  X: snare

Verse 1:
[ Tab from: ]
	The sound of your footsteps
	Telling me that you're near
	Your soft gentle motion, baby
	D#m                            C#
	Brings out the need in me that no-one can hear, except


	F#        C#
	In my midnight confessions
	G#m                  C#
	When I tell all the world that I love you
	F#        C#
	In my midnight confessions
	G#m                 C#
	When I say all the things that I want to
	[spoken:] I love you


	E                  B                     F#            C#
	But a little gold ring you wear on your hand makes me understand
	E                  B                       F#
	There's another before me, you'll never be mine
	I'm wasting my time

	[repeat first four bars of intro, then 3/4 bar w/snare on 3]

Verse 2:

	Staggering through the daytime
	Your image on my mind
	Passing so close beside you baby
	Sometimes the feelings are so hard to hide, except

	[repeat chorus]

Horn break:

	F#       C#       E        B
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /   [2x]

	/ / / /  / / / /

	[repeat bridge]

	[repeat chorus; first two lines over arpeggiated organ chords only]

Coda [repeat to fade]
	F#           C#
	Na na-na     na na na na-na
	E            B
	Na na-na     na na na na na
