Shawn Mullins — Up All Night lyrics

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 band ever heard
But she got tired of the 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 whisky 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 too long
To get cuffed by the cops
And right about now
He's a 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 thru anything
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
