A Girl In The Night Song Lyrics and Chords by Hank Thompson

 

A Girl In The Night
Written and Recorded by Hank Thompson
C 
She lives her life in honky tonks and  
F 
crowded backstreet bars
 
The  
G7 
world of make believe that knows no  
C 
sun or moon or  
G7 
stars
 
Just  
C 
a glitter of a great white way and the  
F 
glare of city lights
 
Where  
G7 
music's loud she's in the crowd a girl in the  
C 
night
 
I  
F 
wonder if she's thinking of  
C 
dreams that didn't last
 
I  
D7 
wonder if she's haunted by  
G7 
heartaches from the past
C 
Perhaps there is a story of a  
F 
love that wasn't right
 
Now  
G7 
shadows hide her empty pride a girl in the  
C 
night
 
She's sitting there so lonely as  
F 
she lights a cigarette
 
The  
G7 
smoke rings rise and in her eyes there  
C 
seems to be re
G7 
gret
 
Is she  
C 
there to tempt the lover in a  
F 
dress that hugs her tight
 
A  
G7 
glass of wine to pass the time a girl in the  
C 
night
Repeat #2

 
Now  
G7 
shadows hide her empty pride a girl in the  
C 
night

Who is Hank Thompson?
- Henry William Thompson (September 3, 1925 - November 6, 2007) was an American country music singer-songwriter and musician whose career spanned seven decades.
Thompson's musical style, characterized as honky-tonk Western swing, was a mixture of fiddles, electric guitar, and steel guitar that featured his distinctive, smooth baritone vocals.
His backing band, The Brazos Valley Boys, was voted the top Country Western Band for 14 years in a row by Billboard. Thompson pursued a "light" version of the Western swing sound that Bob Wills and others played the primary difference between his music and that of Bob Wills was that Thompson, who used the swing beat and instrumentation to enhance his vocals, discouraged the intense instrumental soloing from his musicians that Wills encouraged however, the "Hank Thompson sound" exceeded Bob Wills in top-40 country hits.
Although not as prominent on the top country charts in later decades, Thompson remained a recording artist and concert draw well into his 80s.
The 2013 game Grand Theft Auto V featured his song "It Don't Hurt Anymore" in the fictional radio show, Rebel Radio.
The 1987 novel Crazy Heart by Thomas Cobb was inspired by Thompson's life, specifically by his practice of picking up a local band to back him when he toured. In 2009, Cobb's novel was turned into a successful film directed by Scott Cooper and starring Jeff Bridges in an Academy Award-winning performance.
