FRENCHY BURRITO and the folk pistols

MIDNIGHT CAFES............written by: frenchy burrito/rodd willings

My good friends buy me drinks
I sing them songs
They tell me what they think
And I listen all night long
But no one ever sees
This man I used to be
Or this long and lonesome road
That I been on

And good-byes such a long way from now
And midnight cafes are all I've ever known
And my dreams seem to work out anyhow
And Im walking these etreet far from home

Now I'll buy another round
And drink to your health
And you might call me a fool
But I like you in spite of yourself
But no one ever sees
This man I used to be
Or this long and lonesome road
That I been on

And good-byes such a long way from now
And midnight cafes are all I've ever known
And my dreams seem to work out anyhow
And Im walking these streets far from home
