 This is a great VU song, sung by Mo Tucker and covered I understand by 
 REM. Play this on an acoustic and drop the tuning a half-step. 
 
 
 AFTERHOURS
 
 
 
 
 (1,2,3)
        C         A7
 If you close the door
     Dm                  G
 The night could last forever
           C        A7
 Leave the sunshine out
     Dm             G
 And say hello to never
 
 
 
         C                              C7
 All the people are talking and they're having such fun
   F                         Fm
 I wish this could happen to me
            C         A7
 But if you close the door
      Dm            G            C
 I'll never have to see the day again

 
 
 
            C         A7
 But if you close the door
     Dm                  G
 The night could last forever
           C          A7
 Leave the wine glass out
     Dm               G
 And drink a toast to never
 
 
 C                           C7
 Someday I know someone will look into my eyes
            F
 And say hello
                        Fm
 You're my very special one
            C         A7
 But if you close the door
      Dm            G           C        (Bass line to bridge: C-B-Bb)
 I'll never have to see the day again
 
 
 
 Bridge:
 
 Am         E7          Am       E7
 Dark party bars, shiny Cadillac cars
     Am        E7          Am        Am-G#-G       
 And people on subways and trains
         Dm          A7           Dm         A7
 Looking grey in the rain as they stand disarrayed
       F                       G
 Oh but people look well in the dark
 
 
 
        C         A7
 If you close the door
     Dm                  G
 The night could last forever
           C        A7  
 Leave the sunshine out
     Dm           G
 And say hello to never
 C                           C7
 Someday I know someone will look into my eyes
         F  
 And say hello
                        Fm
 You're my very special one
            C         A7
 But if you close the door
      Dm            G           C       A7
 I'll never have to see the day again
     Dm            G           C       A7
 I'll never have to see the day again (once more)
      Dm            G           C
 I'll never have to see the day again
 
 
 
 
 
    Am                                      E7

About the artist behind After Hours Chords:

The Velvet Underground was an American rock band first active from 1965 to 1970 (and 1970 to 1973 in a different incarnation). Its best-known members were Lou Reed and John Cale. Although never commercially successful while together, the Velvet Underground are often cited by critics as one of the most important and influential groups of their era.[1] A famous remark, often attributed to British musician Brian Eno, is that while only a few thousand people bought the first Velvet Underground record upon its release, almost every single one of them was inspired to start a band.[2]
