D                       A       A7
Music is playing in the darkness
      Bm                    G    Gm
and a lantern goes swinging by
D                  A           Asus4  A
Shadows flickering, my heart's jittering
G     D   A/E D    A
 Just you and I
Not tonight, come tomorrow
     D                            D7
When everything's sunny and bright
 No no no, come tomorrow 'cause
E                             A
then we'll be waiting for the moonlight

         G   D          F7  E
We'll go walking in the moonlight
C       G      Bb  A    A7
Walking in the moonlight

Laughter ringing in the darkness
       Bm               G         Gm
People drinking for days gone by
Time don't mean a thing
A           Asus4  A
When you're by my side
G       D    A/E D    A
 Please stay a while

F#                                   Bm
   You know I never could forsee the future years
   You know I never could see
               Bm            A
Where life was leading me
D                             A   F#
   But will we be together forever?
What will be my love?
          E               A          A7
Can't you see that I just don't know?

-Solo- [Verse chords]

No no, not tonight, not tomorrow
Everything's gonna be alright (sunny and bright)
Wait and see if tomorrow we'll be
as happy as we're feeling tonight
We'll go walking in the moonlight (we'll be happy)
Walking in the moonlight

I can hear the music in the darkness
Floating softly to where we lie
No more questions now
Let's enjoy tonight
G     D   A/E D  A
(Just you and I)
G    D   A   D
Just you and I

D - Dsus4 - D - Dsus4  (play around with these until the end)
Just you and I
Can't you see that we've gotta be together
Be together just you and I just you and I
No more questions just you and I


For the last line of the verse, where the chord progression goes like this:  G - D - A/E 
- D, I like to do a little fast picking on strings 4-6 (low E to D), as the chord 
progression sounds kind of awkward.
What I do is:

Of course, these can be strummed, and then it would go [320xxx]-[200xxx]-[x02xxx]-[xx0232]

Another thing, I add the Asus4 to the third line of the verse, just for added color, but 
it can easily be skipped.
