The following are lyrics to the song The Night Before. The song was written by Wendell Mobley, Neil Thrasher, and Jimmy Olander.


Sittin' up on the roof, sneakin' a smoke by the chimney

Checkin' out the moon and the city lights

He takes off his flannel shirt, and he drapes it around her shoulders

Slides up behind her and holds on tight

And she says, I don't want this night to end

Why does it have to end

Tomorrow she'll be rollin' down I-10 Baton Rouge, LSU

Eighteen years in her rearview

He's got a Friday paycheck lined up down the block

At Daddy's shop, it ain't much but it's a job

They've been dreadin' this moment all summer long

The night before life goes on

Ooh, a tear falls off her cheek

And right when it hits his arm he says,

C'mon baby, let's get out of here

They take one last drive around town, and man, it already looks different

He bangs the wheel and says, life ain't fair

And this growin' up stuff, man I don't know

I just don't wanna let you go

Tomorrow she'll be rollin' down I-10 Baton Rouge, LSU

Eighteen years in her rearview

He's got a Friday paycheck lined up down the block

At Daddy's shop, it ain't much but it's a job

They've been dreadin' this moment all summer long

The night before life goes on

Yeah, that's what my mama told me

And just like those kids, I didn't wanna listen to no one

Yeah, there's nothin' you can do, there's nothin' you can say

And I know how it feels when love goes away

Tomorrow she'll be rollin' down I-10 Baton Rouge, LSU

Eighteen years in her rearview

He's got a Friday paycheck lined up down the block

At Daddy's shop, it ain't much but it's a job

They've been dreadin' this moment all summer long

But here it is, they don't have long

The night before life goes on

Yeah, yeah, yeah
