Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes – All Night Long lyrics

(B. Bandiera/J. Lyon)

Snuck in the barroom, I was just 14
Man he used to shake 'em down
He'd turn it up and then he'd make it scream
But then he put it down

I used to go just to watch him play
All night long
Now all I ever see him do is pray
All night long
All night long

I got a letter from a friend of mine
It knocked me off my feet
He said he saw a girl I used to know
Workin' on the street
She's the one who helped me find my way
All night long
Now you tell me that she's gone astray
Well, man, I hope you're wrong
I hope you're wrong
Well I don't know about it, it's a mystery
Wish I knew how to walk the straight and narrow
And still be me, still be me

I still go back there every now and then
Just to walk around
I can't get caught up in them memories
I'm afraid I'll drown

I used to try to drink my life away
All night long
Now I try to take it day by day
Right or wrong
People tell me there's a better way
All night long
All I ever want to do is play
All night long
All night long
