THE NIGHT'S TOO LONG (Lucinda Williams) Recorded by : Lucinda Williams; Patty Loveless. Sylvia was workin' as a waitress in Beaumont She said I'm movin' away, I'm gonna get what I want I'm tired of these small-town boys that don't move fast enough I'm gonna find me one who wears a leather jacket and likes his livin' rough So she saved her tips and overtime and bought an old rusty car She sold most everything she had to make a brand new start She said I won't be needing these silly dresses and nylon hose 'Cause when I get to where I'm goin' I'm gonna buy me all new clothes The night's too long; It just drags on and on And then there's never enough; That's when the sun starts comin' up Don't let go of her hand; You just might be the right man She loves the night She loves the night She doesn't want the night Don't want it to end Don't want it to end She works in an office now and she guesses the pays all right She can buy a few new things to wear and still go out at night And as soon as she gets home from work she wants to be out with the crowd Where she can dance and toss her head back and laugh out loud Well the music's playin' fast and they just met He presses up against her and his shirt's all soaked with sweat And with her back against the bar she can listen to the band And she's holdin' a Corona and it's cold against her hand The night's too long; It just drags on and on And then there's never enough; That's when the sun starts comin' up Don't let go of her hand; You just might be the right man She loves the night She loves the night She doesn't want the night Don't want it to end Don't want it to end. (Transcribed by Nancy - August 2004)
