A Night On The Town – Bruce Hornsby And The Range

Van and Willie went out one night
Once they get out on the road
Well then everything is alright
Had to get away from the kids and the wives
Well they ran into some city boys that didn’t walk just right
And the line was drawn for another showdown
Like they’d always seen it done
And when the lights came up on the little woods town
Ther was an old man bailing out a son

Going out for a night on the town
Going out to the smoke and trees
Going out for a night on the town
Going out for a look and see
Said do what your daddy told you
Well I just went out and did that
Van and Willie went out one night

There’s a green table down at the midway
Where they rack up the balls for the games
And reputations are made
There’s a green forest full of oaks and pines
Where they cleared a cleared a space in the middle
Where secret scores are settled
And the claim was made round the table that night
And they rode off through the trees
And the young boys tell how the city boys tried
And how one man fell to his knees

Going out for a night on the town
Going out to the smoke and trees
Going out for a night on the town
Going out for a look and see
Said what made you go and do that
Well we were just having a little fun
Van and Willie went out one night

And the line was drawn for another showdown
Like they’d always seen and done
And one mans night for a drunken old time
Left a scar on on another one

Going out for a night on the town
Going out to the smoke and trees
Going out for a night on the town
Going out for a look and see
Said do what your daddy told you
Well I just went out and did that
Van and Willie went out one night

Walk In The Sun – Bruce Hornsby And The Range

My name is Vernon James and I live to the south of town
I work my window watching the women go round and round
Some people come here for love
Some people come for fantasy
When two in the morning comes round
My baby comes around for me

Someone come, come my someone
Take the clouds from my eyes, my one
I know that sometime soon
One day we’ll walk in the sun

I’m taking tickets and watching
the men always looking down
Sometimes I feel like an animal in
the zoo staring out
No one looks me in the eye
They save it for the girls inside
I don’t care much what they see
I know she saves it all for me

Someone come, come my someone
Take the clouds from my eyes, my one
I know that sometime soon
One day we’ll walk in the sun

Some people come here for love
Some come for curiosity
I know there will be a day
I know we’ll figure out a way

Someone come, come my someone
Take the clouds from my eyes, my one
I know that sometime soon
One day we’ll walk in the sun

Jacob’s Ladder – Bruce Hornsby And The Range

I met a fan dancer down in southside Birmingham
She was running from a fat man selling salvation in his hand
She said he’s tryin’ to save me
But I’m doin’ alright, the best that i can
Just a pair of fallen angels tryin’ to get through the night

Step by step, one by one, higher and higher
Step by step, one by one, climbing Jacob’s ladder

Comin’ over the airwaves the man says I’m overdue
Sing a song, send money, join the chosen few
But mister I’m not in a hurry, and I don’t want to be like you
All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today

Step by step, one by one, higher and higher
Step by step, one by one, climbing Jacob’s ladder

All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today
Step by step, one by one, higher and higher
Step by step, one by one, climbing Jacob’s ladder
