Frankie Miller – Drunken Nights In The City lyrics

I'll tell you a story about a night in the town,
Started off drinking at five.
By the time I was through,
I had worn out my shoes,
And had visited every known dive.

All the lights in the alley,
Fall dim on the ground, When your trying to see your
Way home.
And the all night ladies,
In their perfume so fine,
They won't leave a poor boy alone.

You know the price of a gambler
Is staked in the sin,
When the cards are all spread on the floor.
The six and the seven,
Are needed to win,
But you can't seem to bluff any more.

So you stand to your feet,
And you figure discretly,
The best way to pay what you owe.
When she hands you a line,
Tells you thanks for the time,
You might have brung grace to the show.

Chorus:
Drunken nights in the city,
Are showing their toll,
They'll take you for all that you know.
You can't judge a book,
And you can't judge a crook,
Down where the buffalo go.

It was early next morning,
I rose up so bad,
My eyes were as red as the light.
My pockets were empty,
And so was my heart,
I promised to put things right.
I went down to the preacher,
I fell on my knees,
Asked the preacher,
To right all the wrongs,

But he just shook his head,
And looked sorry when he said,
'You've been on the streets far too long'

Drunken nights in the city,
Are showing their toll,
They'll take you for all that you owe.
You can't judge a book,
And you can't judge a crook,
Down where the bandaleen go.

Drunken nights in the city,
Are showing their toll,
They'll take you for all that you know.
You can't judge a book,
And you can't judge a crook,
Down where the bufallo go.

No
Woah no
