Don't Turn Out The Light
Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
Scarecrow and a yellow moon
and a roadhouse on the edge of town.
Hear that midnight rooster crow
well I'll have one more before I go
but Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think I'm in the mood for love tonight

The night is cool beneath the stars
ridin' home in John's old car
got my head out in the wind
here I am drunked up again
but Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think I'm in the mood for love tonight

Me and John in a pickup truck
bottle of gin and a paper cup
Runnin' wild and livin' hard
I passed out in our front yard
but Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think I'm in the mood for love tonight

INSTRUMENTAL

The moon is high, the sun is down
Honey came out in her night gown
On the porch at a quarter to three
talkin' to the deputy sherrif and me
but Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think I'm in the mood for love tonight

I said Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think i'm in the mood for love tonight
I said Honey, don't turn out the light
'cause I think i'm in the mood for love tonight
