Well, Johnny Mae and William J, hitched a ride from sunny L.A.
With a soldier who'd gone AWOL, stockade bound and they got off
In the Texas rain and they hopped a southern diesel train
Headed to Atlanta, my hometown
Where she danced all night in a go, go bar

And he tried his best to play bass guitar
In the absolute worst punk band ever heard
But she got tired of the Georgia clay
And a drunk musician who couldn't even play

So she took a bus to Boston without a word
He never got to say goodbye and he has to wonder why
It keeps him up all night, the way she wore her hair
It keeps him up all night her voice is everywhere

It keeps him up all night, she's out there
Searchin' somewhere for somethin' of her own
Well, old Will kept makin' bad music worse
But the whiskey and the pills

Wouldn't quench his thirst no more
So he stuck a needle in his arm then he lost his band
He started liftin' shops it didn't take too long
To get cuffed by the cops and right about now

He's a workin' on the county farm
It's never easier to say goodbye and she has to wonder why
It keeps her up all night the way he held her hand
It keeps her up all night, he was her only man

It keeps her up all night, she's out there
Searchin' somewhere for somethin' of her own
To get where you need to be, you'll go through anything
And on your way to be free, you know, love is everything

Baby, love is everything, it keeps us up all night
Yes, love is everything, it keeps us up all night
Yes, love is everything, it keeps us up all night
We're out there

Searchin' somewhere, for somethin' of our own
It keeps us up all night, we're out there
Searchin' somewhere for somethin' of our own
