Tonight's The Night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night.

Bruce berry was a working man
He used to load that econoline van.
A sparkle was in his eye
But his life was in his hands.

Well, late at night when the people were gone
He used to pick up my guitar
And sing a song in a shaky voice
That was real as the day was long.

Tonight's the night, yes it is, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, yes it is, tonight's the night.

Early in the mornin' at the break of day
He used to sleep until the afternoon.
If you never heard him sing
I guess you won't too soon.

'cause people let me tell you
It sent a chill up and down my spine
When I picked up the telephone
And heard that he'd died out on the mainline.

Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night.

Bruce berry was a working man
He used to load that econoline van.
Well, early in the morning at just about the break of day
He used to sleep until the afternoon.

Tonight's the night, yes it is, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night.back to top
Speakin' Out
I went to the movie the other night,
The plot was groovy, it was out of sight.
I sat with my popcorn, out lookin' for good times
Lost in the cartoon, I grabbed the lifeline.

I've been a searcher, I've been a fool,
But I've been a long time comin' to you.
I'm hopin' for your love to carry me through
You're holdin' my baby, and I'm holdin' you,
And it's all right.

Oh, tell me where the answer lies.
Is it in the notebook behind your eyes?
When your decision comes to view,
I'll be watchin' my tv, and it'll be watchin' you.

I've been a searcher, I've been a fool,
But I've been a long time comin' to you.
I'm hopin' for your love to carry me through
You're holdin' my baby, and I'm holdin' you,
Yes I am.

Speakin' out.back to top
World On A String
You know I lose, you know I win
You know I call for the shape I'm in.
It's just a game you see me play,
Only real in the way
That I feel from day to day.

Although the answer is not unknown,
I'm searchin', searchin', and how I've grown.
It's not all right to say goodbye,
And the world on a string
Doesn't mean a thing.

No, the world on a string
Doesn't mean a thing.
It's only real in the way
That I feel from day to day.
No, the world on a string
Doesn't mean a thing.back to top
Borrowed Tune
I'm climbin' this ladder,
My head in the clouds
I hope that it matters,
I'm havin' my doubts.

I'm watchin' the skaters
Fly by on the lake.
Ice frozen six feet deep,
How long does it take?

I look out on peaceful lands
With no war nearby,
An ocean of shakin' hands
That grab at the sky.

I'm singin' this borrowed tune
I took from the rolling stones,
Alone in this empty room
Too wasted to write my own.

I'm climbin' this ladder,
My heads in the clouds
I hope that it matters.back to top
Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown
Come on, baby, let's go downtown,
Let's go, let's go, let's go downtown.
Come on, baby, let's go downtown,
Let's go, let's go, let's go downtown.

Walk on, talk on, baby tell no lies.
Don't you be caught with a tear in your eye.

Sure enough, they'll be sellin' stuff
When the moon begins to rise.
Pretty bad when you're dealin' with the man,
And the light shines in your eyes.

Come on, baby, let's go downtown,
Let's go, let's go, let's go downtown.
Come on, baby, let's go downtown,
Let's go, let's go, let's go downtown.

Snake eyes, french fries and I got lots of gas.
Full moon and a jumpin' tune, now you don't have to ask.

Sure enough, they'll be sellin' stuff
When the moon begins to rise.
Pretty bad when you're dealin' with the man,
And the light shines in your eyes.

Come on, baby, let's go downtown,
Let's go, let's go, let's go downtown.
Come on, baby, let's go downtown,
Let's go, let's go, let's go downtown.

Walk on, talk on, baby tell no lies.
Don't you be caught with a tear in your eye.

Sure enough, they'll be sellin' stuff
When the moon begins to rise.
Pretty bad when you're dealin' with the man,
And the light shines in your eyes.

Pretty bad when you're dealin' with the man,
And the light shines in your eyes.back to top
Mellow My Mind
Baby mellow my mind,
Make me feel like a schoolboy on good time,
Jugglin' nickels and dimes,
Satisfied with the fish on the line.

I've been down the road and I've come back
Lonesome whistle on the railroad track
Ain't got nothing on those feelings that I had.

Something so hard to find,
A situation that can casualize your mind.

I've been down the road and I've come back
Lonesome whistle on the railroad track
Ain't got nothing on those feelings that I had.

Baby mellow my mind,
Make me feel like a schoolboy on good time,
Jugglin' nickels and dimes,
Satisfied with the fish on the line.back to top
Roll Another Number (For The Road)
It's too dark
to put the keys
in my ignition,
And the mornin' sun is yet
to climb my hood ornament.
But before too long I might
see those flashing red lights
Look out, mama,
'cause I'm comin' home tonight.

Think I'll
roll another number
for the road,
I feel able to get under any load.
Though my feet
aren't on the ground,
I been standin' on the sound
Of some open-hearted people
goin' down.

I'm not goin' back
to Woodstock for a while,
Though I long to hear
that lonesome hippie smile.
I'm a million miles away
from that helicopter day
No, I don't believe
I'll be goin' back that way.

Think I'll
roll another number
for the road,
I feel able to get under any load.
Though my feet
aren't on the ground,
I been standin' on the sound
Of some open-hearted people
goin' down.back to top
Albuquerque
Well, they say that santa fe is less than ninety miles away,
And I got time to roll a number and rent a car.
Oh, albuquerque.

I've been flyin' down the road, and I've been starvin' to be alone,
And independent from the scene that I've known.
Albuquerque.

So I'll stop when I can, find some fried eggs and country ham.
I'll find somewhere where they don't care who I am.
Oh, albuquerque,
Albuquerque.back to top
New Mama
New mama's got a sun in her eyes
No clouds are in my changing skies
Each morning when I wake up to rise
I'm livin' in a dreamland.

Changing times, ancient reasons, that turn to lies
Throw them all away
Head in hand, gift of wonders to understand
And open all the way.

New mama's got a sun in her eyes
No clouds are in my changing skies
Each morning when I wake up to rise
I'm livin' in a dreamland.back to top
Lookout Joe
A hip drag queen and a side-walkin' street wheeler,
Comin' down the avenue.
They're all your friends, you'll come to love 'em
There's a load of 'em waitin' for you.

Lookout joe, you're comin' home.
Old times were good times,
Old times were good times.

Remember millie from down in philly?
She took my brain and forgot my name.
The woman you were with was about the same
She took your money and left town.

Lookout joe, you're comin' home.
Old times were good times,
Old times were good times.

Glory hallelujah!
Will I lay my burden down?
Singin' on the streets around:
Look at that crazy clown.

Remember bill from up on the hill?
A cadillac put a hole in his arm.
But old bill, he's up there still,
Havin' a ball rollin' to the bottom.

Lookout joe, you're comin' home.
Old times were good times,
Old times were good times.back to top
Tired Eyes
Well he shot four men in a cocaine deal
And he left them lyin' in an open field
Full of old cars with bullet holes in the mirrors.
He tried to do his best but he could not.

Please take my advice, please take my advice
Please take my advice.
Open up the tired eyes,
Open up the tired eyes.

Well, it wasn't supposed to go down that way.
But they burned his brother, you know,
And they left him lying in the driveway.
They let him down with nothin'.
He tried to do his best but he could not.

Please take my advice, please take my advice
Please take my advice.
Open up the tired eyes,
Open up the tired eyes.

Well tell me more, tell me more, tell me more
I mean was he a heavy doper or was he just a loser?
He was a friend of yours.
What do you mean, he had bullet holes in his mirrors?
He tried to do his best but he could not.

Please take my advice, please take my advice
Please take my advice.
Open up the tired eyes,
Open up the tired eyes.

Please take my advice, please take my advice
Please take my advice.
Open up the tired eyes,
Open up the tired eyes.back to top
