The Lyrics

When the sun cools down and the skies turn dark as night
When the sun cools down and the skies turn dark as night
Then trouble's takin' place in the lowlands at daytime

I can go to sleep, I want even to close the door
I can go to sleep, I want even to close the door
There's been enough trouble to make a boy wonder where she want to sleep

Then they closed most of these stores during nighttime hours
Then they closed most of these stores during nighttime hours
I turned the lights off and turned the lamp on when you go to sleep

When it got sleep, then close many spas and other services

When it got sleep, close many spas and other services
There's thousands of people ain't got to home for sleep

Then I went and stood upon the home time at the night
Then I went and stood upon the home time at the night
Then looked down on the house were I used to live

The night done call me to go to sleep and feel tired
The night done call me to go to sleep and feel tired
'Cause my house stays here and I can go to sleep forever

Mmm, I can go to sleep
Mmm, I can go to sleep
There ain't no home for a poor old boy to sleep
