Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes – Shake 'em Down lyrics

(S. Van Zandt)

I ride the top of the line, I can't settle for less
I came here tonight to do what I do best
Hold tight, babe, I'm breakin' down the doors
I got mine, I'm hopin' you got yours

We're gonna rock until the morning
We're gonna ride till we die
I gotta keep movin till I'm satisfied
Come on, come on it's gonna be alright
We're gonna shake 'em down, baby, tonight

I can't back down when the goin' gets rough
This is all we got, baby, it's got to be enough
I'd like to try to quit it, but I don't know how
I needed it then and, baby, I need it right now

We're gonna rock until the morning
We're gonna ride till we die
I gotta keep movin till I'm satisfied
Come on, come on it's gonna be alright
We're gonna shake 'em down, baby, tonight
Goodnight

I've sacrificed everything I've known and loved
I've lost too much time, I spilled too much blood
I ain't felt nothin' since '65
There's only one thing left keeping me alive

We're gonna rock until the morning
We're gonna ride till we die
I gotta keep movin till I'm satisfied
Come on, come on it's gonna be alright
We're gonna shake 'em down, baby, tonight

We're gonna rock until the morning
We're gonna ride till we die
I gotta keep movin till I'm satisfied
Come on, come on it's gonna be alright
We're gonna shake 'em down, baby, tonight
Shake 'em down baby tonight
Shake 'em down baby tonight
Shake 'em down baby tonight
