Ray Price – Night Life lyrics

When the evenin' sun goes down
You will find me hangin' 'round...

Intro, spoken:

Well, Hi, neighbors
It is sundown at our house
As we make this new Columbia album for you
We want to thank you for bein' so nice on our last album
It was wonderful the way you accepted it
And, tonight, we've chosen some of the songs that we
Sing and play on our dances across the country
Songs that reflect the emotions
Of the people that live in the night life
Songs of happiness, sadness, heartbreak
Songs of the night life
And we hope that you enjoy yourself tonight
As you listen to our latest one
This first song was written especially for me
By a boy from down in Texas way
And it's accepted so good on our dances
We hope you like it
It's a little different from what we normally do
But we hope it will be pleasing to you
So, me and the Cherokee Cowboys
Are knockin' on your record player once more
And we hope that you can just kind of sit back
Kick off your shoes
And relax just a little bit
And listen to our latest album
And if you like it, tell us about it, won't you
And we'll try to do more things for you
The way we're doin' this one...

When the evenin' sun goes down
You will find me hangin' 'round
Oh, the night life ain't no good life
But it's my life

Many people just like me
Dreaming of old used-to-be
Oh, the night life ain't no good life
But it's my life

Well, listen to the blues they're playin'
Yeah, listen to what the blues are sayin'

Mine is just another scene
From the world of broken dreams
Oh, the night life ain't no good life
But it's my life

(Repeat first two verses)

Repeat chorus

(Repeat last verse
