Outtake version 1
One, two, three, four
Well I lost all my money, sometimes I think I lost my guts too, hmm
And I wish God would send me a word, and something I'm afraid to lose, hmm
Sitting in a room, walking prisoners for the rest of our lives
Sending shivers down my spine when you watch me in your jeweler's eyes
'Cause baby baby baby, well I wanna drive all night again to buy my baby some shoes and to taste her tender charm
And I wanna sleep tonight again in her arms, hmm
Tonight there's fallen angels down in the street
Beneath our window, babe, I hear them
Tonight there's calling strangers, moving in defeat, hmm
Tonight there's fallen angels and let them in their dance of the dead
But don't worry baby
La da da da, la da da da, go on the inside
'Cause babe, baby, I'll drive all night again just to buy you some shoes and to taste your tender charm
And I wanna sleep tonight again in your arms, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Hmm hmm hmm
The above lyrics are for a studio take of DRIVE ALL NIGHT recorded in June or August 1977 at Atlantic Studios in New York City, NY (see the album version for more details about the studio sessions). This is a short version that features some different lyrics from the album version and lacks Clarence Clemons' saxophone solo.
This outtake version of DRIVE ALL NIGHT can be found on The Lost Masters Vol. 2 (Labour Of Love) bootleg.
Thanks Jake (ol'catfishinthelake at BTX and Greasy Lake) for the lyrics help.
