ALL THE WAY HOME

live 07 Aug 1992 version


[Spoken intro:] A special guest Southside Johnny gonna come and sing a song with us (cheers). (Southside: "You know these people? Who are these people? I don't know, they look like relatives to me, Bruce...") ??? they were here. Alright, here's a little tune I wrote for him, he hasn't thanked me enough for it yet but he'll get around to it ??? (Southside: "It's a lot bigger than I thought it would be...") You haven't even seen it yet!

[Southside]
I know what it's like to have failed baby
With the whole world lookin' on
I know what it's like to have been so sure
And I wake up and find it all gone

[Bruce]
Now I know you've got no reason to trust me, no no
And tonight my confidence is a little rusty
But it's getting late
If you don't feel like leavin' alone
Won't you let me walk you baby
All the way home

[Southside]
Our old fears and failures
Whoa they do linger
[Bruce]
Like the shadow of that ring
That was on your finger
[Southside]
Oh but those days darling
All those days are dead and gone
Oh I could walk you baby
All the way home

[Bruce and Southside]
Now there's things no one can rearrange
We both have yesterdays oh that we can't change

[Southside]
Don't you know it's closing time baby
The bartenders ringing last call, last call baby
[Bruce]
Tonight I can't stand on pride and
I ain't afraid to take a fall
[Southside]
But the time has come
And if your first choice, ??? he's gone
Whoa that's alright baby
'Cause I can walk you all the way home
[Bruce and Southside]
All the way home
I walk you all the way home
I walk you all the way home baby
I walk you all the way home baby
I walk you all the way home baby
I walk you all the way home
I walk you all the way home, whoaaa

[Southside]
Thanks for the song Bruce
