Verse:

D                                    C         G    Em
I remember standing on the corner at midnight,
                 D          C     G       Em
Tryin' to get my courage up
               D                               C             G   Em
There was this long, lovely dancer in a little club downtown
                     D          C G Em
I loved to watch her do her stuff
            Bm           Bsus2       Bm        Bsus2    F#m
Through the long, lonely nights, she filled my sleep,
                G               Em        G/A
Her body softly swayin' to that smoky beat


Chorus (w/riff):
        D         C     G   Em
Down on Mainstreet
Down on Mainstreet


In the pool halls, the hustlers and the losers,
I used to watch 'em through the glass
Well I'd stand outside at closing time
Just to watch her walk on past
Unlike all the other ladies, she looked so young and sweet
As she made her way alone down that empty street


Down on Mainstreet
Down on Mainstreet


Solo (over chords)


And sometimes even now, when I'm feelin' lonely and beat,
I drift back in time, and I find my feet


Down on Mainstreet, down on Mainstreet
Down on Mainstreet, down on Mainstreet
Down on Mainstreet, down on Mainstreet


The main riff is changed slightly during each chorus (it gets
simpler each time) and there is a piano accompaniment throughout.
Sorry I don?t have the solo yet; this is my first tab.

About the artist behind Mainstreet Tab:

Bob Seger (born May 5, 1945) is an American rock and roll singer-songwriter and musician.

After years of local Detroit-area success, recording and performing in the mid-1960s, Seger achieved superstar status by the mid-1970s and continuing through the 1980s with the Silver Bullet Band. A roots rocker with a classic raspy, shouting voice, Seger was first inspired by Little Richard and Elvis Presley. He wrote and recorded songs that dealt with blue-collar themes. Seger has recorded many rock and roll hits, including "Night Moves", "We've Got Tonight", "Like a Rock" and also co-wrote the Eagles number one hit "Heartache Tonight." His iconic signature song "Old Time Rock and Roll" was named one of the Songs of the Century in 2001. With a career spanning five decades, Seger continues to perform and record today.

Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
