Lyrics

Tonight

I used to read the paper with the kids at the table
Something cookin’, sun going down
I had my daily troubles, my simmering hopes
I wondered what to do with that hole in the roof
And I wondered if the kids were gonna ruin the game
And I wondered if the sky was gonna rain tonight… but now
I wonder where I will sleep tonight

Tonight I got the kids in the back of the Chevy
I’ll read a story to them ‘fore it gets dark
Tonight I’ll tuck their feet into a quilt in the backseat
I hope it’s okay to just sleep in this car
Tonight..

I had my taxes coming and my papers to gather
I wondered why the government was takin’ so much
I had my leases and payments and that brand new TV
That I wondered how would look in that living room hutch
And I wondered if I’d ever get a break from this job
And I wondered how many days ‘til I was done for good…but now…
I wonder where I will sleep tonight…

Tonight I hear the temperature’s dropping to 20
I hear the mission beds were filled before dark
Tonight a few more blankets may just keep out the chill
I hope it’s okay to just sleep in this car
Tonight

I wonder if the morning will bring a change in the weather
I wonder if the morning will bring a change in my luck
I wonder if I stand here by this phone on the corner someone will call me
… will somebody call me?

Tonight I got the kids in the back of the Chevy
I’ll read a story to them ‘fore it gets dark
Tonight I’ll tuck their feet into a quilt in the backseat
I hope it’s okay to just sleep in this car
Tonight I hear the temperature’s dropping to 20
a few more blankets may just keep out the chill
Tonight I hear the mission beds were filled before dark
I hope it’s okay to just sleep in this park
