Lyrics:

It’s been a long, long day
I got some run-down shoes
Ain’t got no place to stay
But any old place will be okay
It’s been a long, long day

Good night
Good night
Oh, my love

I’ve sure been on this road
Done nearly fourteen years
Can’t say my name’s well known
You don’t see my face in Rolling Stone
But I sure been on this road

Good night
Good night
Oh, my love

When I see him standing there
I said, “Hey, there’s a guy who needs a laugh” (Slow motion)
That’s what I said to myself (Half a dollar bill)

What the hell, we’re both alone
And I’m just standing here
Jukebox in the corner
Shooting to kill
And it’s been a …

It’s been a long, long day
I sure could use a friend
Don’t know what else to say
I hate to abuse an old cliché
But it’s been a long, long day
It’s been a long, long day
