Tonight's The Night Lyrics

by Neil Young

Tonight's the night
Tonight's the night
Tonight's the night
Tonight's the night

Bruce Berry was a working man
He used to load that Econoline
A sparkle was in his eye
But his life was in his hands

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 was long

Tonight's the night
Tonight's the night
Tonight's the night
Tonight's the night

Well, early in the mornin' at the break of day
He used to sleep until the afternoon
And 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'd died out on the mainline

Tonight's the night
Tonight's the night
Tonight's the night
Tonight's the night

Bruce Berry was a working man
He used to load that Econoline, Econoline van
Late at night when the people were gone
He used to pick up my guitar

And sing a song in a shaky, shaky voice
That was real as the day was long
