Well Johnny Mae And William J
Hitched a ride from sunny L.A.
With a soldier who'd gone AWOL Stockade bound
And they got off in the Texas rain
And they hopped a southern diesel train
Headed to Atlanta
My hometown
Where she danced all night
In a go-go bar
And he tried his best
To play bass guitar
In the absolute worst punk bar ever heard
Yeah, but she got tired of that Georgia clay
And a drunk musician
Who couldn't even play
So she took a bus to Boston
Without a word
He never got to say goodbye
And he has to wonder why
It keeps him up all night
The way she wore her hair
It keeps him up all night
Her voice is everywhere
It keeps him up all night
She's out there
Searchin' somewhere
For somethin' of her own
Well old Will kept makin' bad music worse
But the whiskey and the pills
Wouldn't quench his thirst no more
So he stuck a needle in his arm
Then he lost his band
He started liftin' shops
It didn't take long
To get cuffed by the cops
And right about now
He's workin' on the county farm
It's never easier to say goodbye
And she has to wonder why
It keeps her up all night
The way he held her hand
It keeps her up all night
He was her only man
It keeps her up all night
She's out there
Searchin' somewhere
For somethin' of her own
To get where you need to be
You'll go through anything
Yes, you will
And on your way to be free
You know, love is everything
Baby, love is everything
It keeps us up all night
Yes, love is everything
It keeps us up all night
Yes, love is everything
It keeps us up all night
We're out there
Searchin' somewhere
For somethin' of our own
It keeps us up all night
We're out there
Searchin' somewhere
For somethin' of our own
Yeah, keep on searchin you
