Where Are You Tonight?
There's a young man in the corner playing 'Crazy' all night long Quarters piled high upon the table He orders Wild Turkey and with a quick wit and a smile He says, 'My darling, you're the one I'll drape in sable' But his baseball cap and this bar-room rap Tell me a different story That this is not my prince to grant all my wishes Just another lonely country-boy grown weary of the night Just another boy with a sink full of dirty dishes Where are you tonight? When I left you in my dreams last night You promised me that we would be breaking free Where are you tonight? He tells me of the back roads And how we'll drive them all night long How the days will fade and the moon will hang forever And how the cloud of dust we'll kick up will linger like a song And the myth will grow about the two who refused to surrender Then I catch us in the bar-room mirror With his arm around my shoulder This girl I see has grown so unfamiliar And as she stands to leave with a stranger by her side She can't help but laugh at a life grown so peculiar Where are you tonight? I don't think I can face tomorrow's light Not knowing if you'll be there to guide me Where are you tonight? Where are you tonight? I think that I'll make it through all right, But I'd love to have you just one more time beside me
