lyrics

You were supposed to be my babe
You weren't supposed to be Charlie's babe
I bought a new guitar today
Was gonna show ya how that song got made
"Night Walking, Alone" by The Desperation Play

Sha la la la la la la
Oh, the evening drifter
Sha la la la
Try to not miss her, it's easier so
But love still grows
And Nobody knows

I was supposed to be your man
Yeah, you know Charlie he don't understand
But if that's the way, then that's the way
Turn on the radio and fade away
"Night Walking, Alone" by The Desperation Play

Remember when they played at Dark Hollow
And the lights blacked out?
My head bled something real...
I was barely 18
My hands knuckle-white
Neck stretched out
When they played “Gripped on to the Steel”
Or was it “Spinnin' My Wheels"?

Sha la la la la la la
Oh, that’s right they played “The Superstition”
Sha la la la
That's when my spine started shivering from head to toe

They played “Love Is the Great Unknown”
into “Night Walking, Alone”

Someday, I will rise from the grave
Haunt that old pool hall beside the bay
Live in the jukebox, watch people sway
Late at night make the jukebox play

"Night Walking, Alone"
"Night Walking, Alone"
"Night Walking, Alone"
