[Intro: D Am C G]

G
Midnight on the prairie,
C
When the stars are bright,
G
Like great ghostly lanterns
D
Away up on high.

[Guitar: G C G D]

G
Midnight on the prairie,
C
Now the owl's weird cry,
G
Like a scary echo
D
Goes floating by.

[Guitar: G C G C]

[Interlude: D Am C G]

G
Midnight on the prairie,
C
Coyotes start to prowl,
G
Off in the distance
D
Hear their eerie howl.
[Guitar: G C G D]

G
Midnight on the prairie
C
On a lonely night
G
The wide sweeping prairie
D
When the stars are bright.

[Guitar: G C G C]
[Outro: D Am C G] or Repeat
