about

Life on the road is hard on a couple of musicians trying to keep their long distance romance alive. But I know everything will be all right if I can make it through tonight.

This rocker crosses over into country with twangy riffs. The acoustic guitar in the back was left in the studio by the legendary master of the telecaster, Marty Stuart, with a personal note written right into the top.

lyrics

Johnny come lately
He comes around most every night
Got a little girl down in Nashville
You know he doesn’t treat her right

He sings that sex sells magazines
And you’re the sweetest thing baby I’ve ever seen
And baby I know everything will be alright
If I can make it through the night

Sally sings sweetly
She’s got a sweet song street siren
She’s singing about true love in other tongues
I don’t think she knows
Just exactly what she means

She says my love’s like a heart attack
I see you go and I always take you back
But baby I know everything will be alright
If I can make it through tonight

She says, I get by
Singing that same old cliche sad lullaby
goes something like

I’m falling in and out of love just about most every day
It’s funny how when we’re apart, baby, those little things
Just up and seem to slip away
Don’t know why i love you so
Don’t know why you’ve always got to go
but baby I know everything will be alright
If I can make it through tonight.

Johnny come nightly
Cause he’s got nowhere else to go
Once upon a time down in Neverland he had a girl
But he never knew that he loved her so
It’s kind of hard to hold on to your dreams
with a three chord symphony
and a pair of faded jeans
and baby I know everything will be alright
If I can make it through tonight

She says, I get by
Singing that same old cliche sad lullaby
goes something like

I’m falling in and out of love just about most every day
It’s funny how when we’re apart, baby, those little things
Just up and seem to slip away
Don’t know why i love you so
Don’t know why you’ve always got to go
but baby I know everything will be alright
If I can make it through tonight.
