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
