night ride home lyrics – joni mitchell

once in a while in a big blue moon
there comes a night like this
like some surrealist
invented this 4th of july
night ride home

hula girls
and caterpillar tractors in the sand
the ukulele man
the fireworks, this 4th of july
and night ride home

i love the man beside me
we love the open road
no phones till friday
far from the overkill
far from the overload

back at the bar, the band tears down
but out here in the headlight beams
the silver power lines
gleam on this 4th of july
and night ride home

round the curve and a big dark horse
red taillights on his hide
is keeping right alongside
rev for stride, 4th of july
night ride home

i love the man beside me
we love the open road
no phones till friday
far from the undertow
far from the overload

once in a while in a big blue moon
there comes a night like this
like some surrealist
invented this 4th of july
night ride home

night ride home
night ride home
on a night ride home
on a night ride home
