Streets of Danville

When I lay down last night, my body tired and tight

Sleep came for a while, but wouldn’t stay

So I tossed and I turned, I lay awake and burned

To be with the one I love so far away

 

Then I went walking through the streets of Danville

Hoping I might get her off my mind

At three in the morning all was quiet at still

Except for me all wide awake, and walking through the streets of Danville

 

Now the people here are kind, none better will you find

They’ve made me feel as welcome as can be

But the one that I love, she’s all I’m thinking of

And in her arms is where I long to be

 

In a couple days I’ll be headed back her way

And my eyes will be smiling at the sight

But I’ve promised to keep

And the boss is watching me

Here’s hoping I can get some sleep tonight
