King of the Nighttime Cowboys - From the album Deaf Gods of Babylon
© 1989 UNI Records

Johnny come home late every night
Never on time, try as he might
Then one day I heard a telephone ring
Johnny been selected, and now he's the king
He's gonna be The KING OF THE NIGHTTIME COWBOYS

With a Hi Hi Ho, an' a yippy-I-A
No more cryin' 'bout the one that got away
Then one day I heard a radio flash
Johnny been collectin' highway trash
He's got to be The KING OF THE NIGHTTIME COWBOYS

Everybody see the new sensation
Johnny's on the front page cover of a magazine yeah
Sweepin' across the nation
Get your tickets now!
He's playin' on the silver screen
Whoa yeah!

Johnny come home late every night
Never on time, try as Johnny might try
Then one day I heard a telephone ring
Johnny been selected, and baby he's the king
The KING OF THE NIGHTTIME COWBOYS
