 E
She's just a night bird flyin' through the night
Fly on
She's just a night bird making a midnight, midnight flight
Sail on, sail on
Yeah, yeah
             A       G     E               G             D       B
Well, she's flyin' down to me, but 'til tomorrow got to set her free
Set her free

So all we got, baby, is one precious night
All we got is one precious night
Throw your blues and shoes and things
and lay it down under the bed
Just wrap me up in your beautiful wings,
better hear what I say, yeah
Oh, carry me home

Please take me through your dreams,
inside your world I want to be

Until tomorrow no tears will be shed
Hold on 'til the sun gets out of bed
Hold on, hold on, baby
Fly on baby

(Solo)
Sail on, sail on, sail on
Sail on
Rise on, take it
