Bobby Bare - Too Many Nights Alone Lyrics

Midnight flights and barroom lights and rollin' for three days and nights
And motel rooms have been my only home
They gave me these sad knowing eyes and old age lines before my time
I guess I spent too many nights alone.

Denver trains and LA games taxis through the New York rain
On everybody's party but my own
Tellin' myself love could wait now maybe girl you've come too late
I may have spent too many nights alone.

I never let nobody any closer than my body
And I never needed someone till now
And you know I want so much to reach out my soul and touch you
But I don't know if I know how.

'Cause midnight flights and barroom lights
And rollin' for three days and nights
And open roads have been my only home
Learnin' ways to say goodbye and songs that only make me cry
I guess I spent too many nights alone, too many nights alone...

    Fantastic! Thanks for posting, I haven't heard this for years. Originally written and sung by Even Stevens whose version is great but Bobby's is harder and sadder, just great!

    You're welcome!  I'll have to try to check out that Even Stevens version.  Thanks for listening!

    @the winner Even Stevens co-wrote the majority of Eddie Rabbitt's hits.

    This song was co-written by that great songwriter Shel Silverstein!
