    Lyrics

    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.
    Yeah, but she got tired of the Georgia clay
    and a drunk musician
    who couldn't even play
    so she took the 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
    shes out there
    searchin somewhere
    for somethin of her own

    Well old Will kept makin bad music worse
    but the whiskey and the pills
    wouldnt quench his thirst no more
    so he stuck a needle in his arm.

    Then he lost his band
    he started liftin' shops
    it didnt take 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
    shes out there
    searchin somewhere
    for somethin of her own

    To get where you need to be
    you'll go through anything
    yes you will
    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 something of our own
    It keeps us up all night
    We're out there
    searchin somewhere
    for something of our own
