(steve bogard/colin linden)
(track 8 - time 3:35)

Sally's puttin' on her perfume - slippin' into high-heeled shoes
Sally used to have a boyfriend play the blues
Billy's puttin' gas in the pick-up - combin' his hair just right
Money burnin' holes in his pocket till tonight

'cause it's nine o'clock - time to rock
Goin' downtown - gonna hear a little guitar talk

Mama does her time at the factory
Daddy minds the local store
Nothin' much to say about it anymore
When they get lost in the music - under the dancehall lights
Mama still makes lovin' daddy feel all right

'cause it's nine o'clock - time to rock
Goin' downtown - gonna hear a little guitar talk

When the guitar talks, when the bass man walks
There's a place down deep inside your heart it will unlock
When there's singin' strings, and the guitar rings
Everywhere around the world the message is the same

Weatherman tells the weather - tv man reads the news
But there's nothin' like a fender talkin' 'bout blue suede shoes
And if your baby leaves you, and if it's been a low down day
Listen what a good old six-string has to say

'cause it's nine o'clock - time to rock
Goin' downtown - gonna hear a little guitar talk

All around the block - we're all gonna rock
Goin' downtown - goona hear a little guitar talk
Hear a little guitar talk
Hear a little guitar talk
Hear a little guitar talk
Hear a little guitar talk
