Late In The Evening

The first thing I remember
I was lying in my bed
I couldn’t of been no more than one or two
I remember there’s a radio
Comin’ from the room next door
And my mother laughed the way some ladies do

When it’s late in the evening
And all the music’s seeping through

The next thing I remember
I am walking down the street
I’m feeling all right I’m with my boys, I’m with my troops, yeah
And down along the avenue
Some guys were shooting pool
And I — heard the sound of acappella groups, yeah

Singing late in the evening
And all the girls out on the stoops, yeah

Then I learned to play some lead guitar
I was underage in this funky bar
And I stepped outside to smoke myself a “J”
And when I came back to the room
Everybody just seemed to move
And I turned my amp up loud and I began to play

And it was late in the evening
And I blew that room away

(Instrumental)

The first thing I remember
When you came into my life
I said I’m gonna get that girl no matter what I do
Well I guess I’d been in love before
And — once or twice I been on the floor
But I never loved no one, the way that I loved you

And it was late in the evening
And all the music seeping through

Instrumental

Repeat and fade
