Shut Out The Light Lyrics

Well the runway rushed up at him
As he felt the wheels touch down
He stood out on the blacktop
And took a taxi into town
He got off down on main street
Went into a local bar
He ordered a drink
and found a seat in a corner off the dark

Well she called up her mama
Made sure the kids were out of the house
She checked herself out in the dining room mirror
Undid an extra button on her blouse
He felt her lying next to him
When the clock said 4 AM
He was staring at the ceiling
And he could'nt even move his hands

Oh mama mama mama come quick
I've got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
Throw your arms around me in the cold dark night
Hey there Mama don't you shut out the light
don't you shut out the light
don't you shut out the lights
don't you shut out the light
don't you shut out the lights

Well on his porch they'd spread a banner
It said Johnny welcome home
Bobby pulled his Ford out of the garage
And they polished up the chrome
His mama said Johnny Oh Johnny
I'm so glad to have you back with me
His Pa said he was sure they'd give him his job back
Down at the factory

Oh mama mama mama come quick
I've got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
Throw your arms around me in the cold dark night
Hey there Mama don't you shut out the light
don't you shut out the light
don't you shut out the lights
don't you shut out the light
don't you shut out the lights

Well deep in the darkest forest
The forest filled with rain
Beyond a stretch of Maryland Pine
There's a river without a name
In the cold dark waters
Johnson Lineir stands
He stares across the lights of the city
And dreams about where he's been

Oh mama mama mama come quick
I've got the shakes and i'm gonna be sick
Throw your arms around me in the cold dark night
Hey there Mama don't you shut out the light
don't you shut out the light
don't you shut out the lights
don't you shut out the light
don't you shut out the lights
don't you shut out the light
don't you shut out the lights
