Where Are You Tonight Lyrics

    There's a young man in the corner playing 'crazy' all night long
    Quarters piled high upon the table
    He orders wild turkey and with a quick wit and a smile
    He says, 'my darling, you're the one i'll drape in sable'
    But his baseball cap and this bar-room rap
    Tell me a different story
    That this is not my prince to grant all my wishes
    Just another lonely country-boy grown weary of the night
    Just another boy with a sink full of dirty dishes

    Where are you tonight?
    When i left you in my dreams last night
    You promised me that we would be breaking free
    Where are you tonight?

    He tells me of the back roads
    And how we'll drive them all night long
    How the days will fade and the moon will hang forever
    And how the cloud of dust we'll kick up will linger like a song
    And the myth will grow about the two who refused to surrender

    Then i catch us in the bar-room mirror
    With his arm around my shoulder
    This girl i see has grown so unfamiliar
    And as she stands to leave with a stranger by her side
    She can't help but laugh at a life grown so peculiar

    Where are you tonight?
    I don't think i can face tomorrow's light
    Not knowing if you'll be there to guide me
    Where are you tonight?

    Where are you tonight?
    I think that i'll make it through all right,
    But i'd love to have you just one more time beside me
