  • Whoa, here it comes
    Here comes the night
    Here comes the night
    Whoa whoa whoa yeah

    I could see right out my window
    Walkin' down the street, my girl
    With another guy

    His arm around her
    Like it used to be with me
    Whoa, it makes me want to die
    Yeah yeah yeah

    Well, here it comes
    Here comes the night
    Here comes the night
    Whoa whoa whoa whoa yeah

    There they go
    It's funny how they look so good together
    Wonder what is wrong with me
    Why can't I, accept the fact she's chosen him
    And simply let them be
    Whoa whoa whoa

    Well, here it comes
    Here comes the night
    Here comes the night
    Whoa whoa whoa yeah

    She's with him he's turning down the lights
    And now he's holding her
    The way I used to do

    I could see, her closing her eyes
    And tellin' him lies
    Exactly like she told me, too
    Yeah yeah yeah

    Well, here it comes
    Here comes the night
    The long, the long and lonely night
    Night, night, night, night, night, night

    Whoa, here comes the night Writer/s: JAMES MC CULLOCH, NICK GILDER

  • Bluedaddy47 from Ontario CanadaActually the song " Here Comes The Night " was written by Canadian Hank Noble and recorded by Billy Guitar and Nighthawks on Decca Records in 1957-58. Same title different song.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn April 17th 1964, Them, with Van Morrison, appeared in concert for the first time, the event took place at the Maritime Hotel in Belfast, Ireland...
    One year and one month later in May 1965 the Irish quintet’s first two records released in the U.S. would enter Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; on May 16th "Gloria" entered the chart at #93 for a one week stay, then a year later on April 17, 1966 it re-entered the Top 100 for six more weeks, and on its last week on the chart it peaked at #71...
    "Here Comes the Night" entered the Top 100 on May 22nd, 1965 at #74; seven weeks later on July 11th, 1965 it would peak at #24 {for 2 weeks} and spent 10 weeks on the Top 100.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyThree other records titled "Here Comes The Night" have charted, each a completely different version. Nick Gilder version peaked at No. 44 in 1978, The Beach Boys reached No. 44 in 1979, and Ben E. King topped out at No. 81 in 1961!!!
  • Jonathan from Newark, NyI was 15 yrs old and learning how to play guitar form buddy Richie ( he took lessons) Them is one the groups that inspired my playing Immensely. Jonathan- Rochester Ny
  • Ted from Phoenix, AzOne of the many pleasures of this song is the change in rhythm between the verses (fast) and the chorus (midtempo).
  • Paul from Rothesay, New Brunswick , CanadaWest Canadian rockers Streetheart covered this song.
  • Rich from Elkins, WvThis song always reminds me of early Rolling Stones...Good tune and vocals ...especally if you like Van Morrison...His Greatest Hits album/CD
    is worth the buy...
  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScGood song. I guess Them wasn't a popular group over hear in the States. I think I can count the number of times I've heard this on the radio. That's three or four maximum. Radio stations don't play "Gloria" either that much. Them was a good band though.
