Lyrics:
[Intro]
Verse 1:
Well I love the way we dance when there is no music playing
And even when you’re lying silently I can hear just what you’re saying
In your eyes I see a part of me that I have never known
Don’t worry, baby, tonight I’m coming home

Well I walk these concrete sidewalks in the early morning sunlight
Then I step upon a hardwood stage and sing until it’s midnight
Always try to show my gratitude for what has been and what’s to come
Don’t worry, baby, tonight I’m coming home

Chorus 1:
Then I’ll never be your gone boy I’ll stand steady by your side
Through the pain and through the laughter I’ll kiss the tears away from your eye
And many moons may pass before we even stop to realize
It’s been a good life

[Break: Guitar Solo]

Verse 2:
Well we pull into another town a quarter past eleven
With our name upon the marquee the doors open at seven
As we check into the motel I’ll sneak off to use the phone
Don’t worry, baby, tonight I’m coming home

It’s so good to hear your voice again, I miss the way you touch me
I swear that soon this tour will end and I’ll head back to Kentucky
My eyes are tired my pockets thin, but I can’t help pushing on
Don’t worry, baby, tonight I’m coming home

Chorus 2:
Then I’ll never be your gone boy I’ll stand steady by your side
Through the pain and through the laughter I’ll kiss the tears away from your eye
And many moons may pass before we even stop to realize
It’s been a good life, And I’ll never be your gone boy

No, I’ll never be your gone boy

[Out]
