Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night

Bruce Berry was a workin' man
He used to load that Econoline Van
A sparkle was in his eyes
But his life was in his hand

Well, late at night when the people were gone
He used to pick up my guitar
And sing a song in a shaky voice
That was real as the day is long

Tonight's the night, yes it is, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, yes it is, tonight's the night

Early in the mornin' at the break of day
He used to sleep until the afternoon
If you never heard him sing
I guess you won't too soon

Cause people let me tell you
It sent a chill up and down my spine
When I picked up the telephone
And heard that he died out on the mainline

Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night

Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night

Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night

Bruce Berry was a workin' man
He used to load that Econoline Van
But early in the mornin', about the break of day
He used to sleep until the afternoon

Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night

Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night

Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
