Words by Jerry Leger / Music by Andrew Barker

lyrics

Just The Night Birds (Leger)
Just the night birds
And the drinkers remain
Early morning show down
At the imaginary saloon
Cowboys and cowgirls
junkies and beggars
The lonely and the desired
The hungry still get their fill
They'll let you smoke your smoke
Once they lock the door
And dim the lights
Hell,
You can have a piece of the surprise
If you like

Howlin Wolf shadow boxes
In the the jukebox
On the other end of the ring
And Betty Lou has a new pair of blues
she'll let you wear them
If you love her til the sun
Holds her unselfishly
Same town with a different name
The ballerinas are doing the twist
High off of that Tennessee sour mash
Getting dirty in the dance hall
They drop their heroes
For the aimless wanderers
Hitch hikers
Adventure ignitors
The pale horse and its riders

Maybe tomorrow or maybe today
Maybe the next set of lights
The flat top skids along
The fresh summer asphalt
Ribbons fly fall from strawberry curls
In a chevy bel air
And the drunks sing their lullabies
To the tune of
"This land is your land"
I believe it is
