  1. Lady of the evening

    She's got my picture in her locket
    I got my hand in her back pocket
    Walkin' through the night in our home town
    We take our time as we go strollin'
    We might go to a movie, might go bowling
    She just says we'll take on what the night will bring

    'Cause she's a lady of the evening
    But only just for me, man
    I'm a wonderin' why she set her likes on me
    She's got me overflowing
    'Cause she keeps me knowin'
    I'll be doin' my leavin'
    With a lady of the evening tonight

    It was the first time that I asked her
    In the hallway when I passed her
    To go with me to the drive-in, in my daddy's car
    Well, we called it rockin' and reelin'
    Oh and I still get that old feelin'
    When she looks in my eyes the way she still can

    'Cause she's a lady of the evening
    But only just for me, man
    I'm a wonderin' why she set her likes on me
    She's got me overflowing
    'Cause she keeps me knowin'
    I'll be doin' my leavin'
    With a lady of the evening tonight

    'Cause she's a lady of the evening
    But only just for me, man
    I'm a wonderin' why she set her likes on me
    She's got me overflowing
    'Cause she keeps me knowin'
    I'll be doin' my leavin'
    With a lady of the evening tonight

  2. Better be some tears

     

    First Verse:

                Some other fool with his head in the clouds

                Might let you get away with what you done

                But not me, Baby, not me

                You fall out of love and now you’re comin’ around

                Any time you want to get back on

                We’ll see, Baby, we’ll see

                I won’t be waitin’ here forever

                Right now I’m tellin’ you

    Chorus:

                There better be some tears

                I wanna see some cryin’

                Now you do a little dying

                To show me you’re sincere

                There better be some tears

                After the way you left me

                Baby if you wanna get me

                To let you come back here

                There better be some tears           

    Second Verse:

                I don’t want to hear another feeble excuse

                About how anyone can make a mistake

                What’s new, Baby, tell me what’s new

                You can tell me a lie or you can tell me the truth

                It doesn’t really matter what you say

                It’s what you do, Baby, it’s what you do

                You say you want me more than ever

                Why aren’t your eyes a little wetter

    Chorus     

    Bridge

                I’m gonna wait until you start comin’ unwound

                I wanna be there when the walls come a tumblin’ down

                And if you really got a heart in there

                Baby if you really care

    Chorus

    Repeat Chorus

  3. Not ready to let you go

    Look at us now
    Livin' on the edge of it's all over
    I'm wondering how we got to be this way at all
    Hearts on the line
    Got us lookin' in both directions
    There's so much at stake
    We've come too far
    Oh, to stand back and watch it fall

    I'm not ready to let you go
    Every time I look into your eyes
    My heart lets me know
    The love we leave behind, we can't afford to lose and so
    Not on a bet
    I'm not ready yet
    Not ready to let you go

    It's so hard to see
    Down the road when we're lookin' behind us
    Where will we be if we don't give it one more try
    Let's turn around
    'Cause the only thing that really matters
    Is sayin' we'll stay, just through the night
    It's much better than sayin' goodbye

    I'm not ready to let you go
    Every time I look into your eyes
    My heart lets me know
    The love we leave behind, we can't afford to lose and so
    Not on a bet
    I'm not ready yet
    Not ready to let you go

    The love we leave behind, we can't afford to lose and so
    Not on a bet
    I'm not ready yet
    Not ready to let you go

    First Verse:

                Well the stage is set and the lights go down

                They say if you go a messin’ then you’re gonna learn a lesson

                Take the cold hard cash we’ll have a ballroom bash

                It took a long time to make it and we know we gonna take it

                If we talk that trash

                I gotta take that beat and feel it way down deep

                And you can’t retreat

    Chorus

  6. New shoes

     

    First Verse:

                She put me down and left me flat

  7. Graveyard shift

     

    The only way to make a livin' round here 
    Is down there on the loading dock
    My daddy done it for 35 years
    And old is all he ever got
     
    Guess I was meant to follow in his footsteps
    Just like an assembly line
    But it's amazing how long the nights get 
    When I'm working on the graveyard shift
    Yes I'm working on the graveyard shift
     
    Wishin' I could give someone a piece of my mind
    There must be somethin' better than this
    Bein' buried alive where the sun never shines
    Workin' on the graveyard shift
     
    I've got some plans about leaving this place
    Made 'em back in '79
    But come next August I'll be up for a raise
    Maybe even get off the line
    So every mornin' over coffee at Denny's 
    Starin out at I-95
    I cuss the part of my soul that keeps sending me
    Down there on the graveyard shift
    Yes I'm working on the graveyard shift
     
    Wishing I could give someone a piece of my mind
    There must be somethin' better than this
    Being buried alive where the sun never shines
    Working on the graveyard shift
     
    ~~Instrumental~~
     
    There'll be a better day
    I know I'll find a way
    That's what we learn to say
    Working on the graveyard shift
     
    Wishing I could give someone a piece of my mind
    There must be somethin' better than this
    Being buried alive where the sun never shines
    Working on the graveyard shift
     
    Yes I'm working on the graveyard shift
    Wishing I could give someone a piece of my mind
    There must be something better than this
    Being buried alive where the sun never shines
    Working on the graveyard shift
     
    Yes I'm working, whoa-o
    Wishing I could give someone a piece of my mind
    There must be something better than this
    Being buried alive where the sun never shines
    Working on the graveyard shift

  10. Gypsies on parade

    We pulled out of Charlotte
    The snow is fallin' down
    We make our way in a one eagle sleigh
    'Till we reach another town
    Our name is in lights on the billboard sign
    In every town we play
    But if you may, all it really need say
    Are gypsies, gypsies on parade

    We pull in to a diner
    Folks just stop and stare
    You here 'em say man
    It's a rock-n-roll band
    By the look and the clothes they wear
    Then you telephone home
    'Cause you're feelin' alone
    And try to think of somethin' to say
    Seems all you get
    Are tears of regret
    For being gypsies, gypsies on parade

    chorus
    Gypsies on parade
    Vagabonds that got it made
