A PLACE FOR US
Paradise is a hard to find world, been a long time comin’
I’m a rocker, have you heard the New York serenade?
I used to practice at my father’s house, he was jack of all trades,
He was a real man who would tell you things point blank.
Once he bought me a pink Cadillac, I wish I were blind,
Growin up in Reno wasn’t so bad, It wasn’t magic.
My beautiful reward was when I met my Sherry darling,
It was a place called Jacob’s Ladder on highway 29.
We were both just looking for a little human touch,
Something we were both missing, I said I wanna be with you.
It wasn’t a line, It was real, she makes me feel like I’m on fire,
I told her I’d prove it all night and I’d be here in the light of day.
We have been together for a while now, ‘I told her’ I’ll work for your love,
I talked to a woman named Mrs. McGrath,
I’m going down to see about a place for us.
I told her I’m doing this for you, for us,
I have a good eye for the beauty I see in you,
Sherry darling, I wanna marry you.
