Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers — Nightwatchman lyrics

I'm the nightwatchman
I make the rounds
I'm the nightwatchman
I gotta keep my nose to the ground

Honey this ain't no job
For a man like me
I got potential
I could be just what you need
You got to think
About the pros and cons
You could be right
You could be wrong

I'm the nightwatchman
I am security
I'm the nightwatchman
How safe do you wanna be

I sit around at night
And listen to the radio
If I get real bored
I might have a little smoke
Yeah I got a permit
To wear this .38
But listen, my life's worth more
Than the minimum wage

{Repeat choruses}
[ Lyrics from: ]
