Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You (December 4, 1975)

Throw my ticket in the wind
Throw my mattress out there too
Throw my letters in the sand
Cause you’ve got to understand
That tonight I’ll be staying here with you

I could have left this town by noon
By tonight I’d’ve been to someplace new
But I was feeling a little bit scattered
And your love was all that mattered

So tonight, I’ll be staying here with you
Get ready, cause tonight, I’ll be staying here with you

Is it really any wonder
The changes we put on each other’s heads
You came down on me like rolling thunder

I left my dreams on the riverbed

I can hear that lonesome whistle blowing
I hear them semis rolling, too
If there’s a driver on the road
Then let him have my load
‘Cause tonight I’ll be staying here with you

Throw my ticket out the window
Throw my suitcase out there too
Throw my troubles out the door
I don’t need them anymore
‘Cause tonight I’ll be staying here with you

I should have left this town this morning
But it was more than I could do
For your love comes on so strong
And I’ve waited all day long
For tonight when I’ll be staying here with you

Is it really any wonder
The love that a stranger might receive
You cast your spell and I went under
I find it so difficult to leave

I can hear that whistle blowing
I see that stationmaster too
If there’s a poor boy on the street
Then let him have my seat
‘Cause tonight I’ll be staying her with you
