Stuck In My Ear: Night Ranger

Stuck In My Ear: Night Ranger

Live in early 1983.

There is an old truism in Rock and Roll: Never name your band after a song. Or a song after your band.

However, this song is a great jam tune. Always great live, although it only made it through the Dawn Patrol and Midnight Madness Tours.

I used to practice this song in my bedroom as a kid. With my small amp turned facedown on my waterbed, and covered with pillows.

And it still rattled the windows in our old brick house.

Night Ranger with…. Night Ranger from Dawn Patrol

In the cool city
In the heat of the night
Looking for adventure
On the face of the light
A Colorado school boy
Put his days on the line
Nights out of paperback
“Catcher In The Rye”

Night ranger
Where you gonna run to now
Night ranger (ranger)

He met her at a rock show
Skin tight jeans
Heavy metal leather
Hanging from her seams
He took her to a late night
She put her heart on the line
Left her standing in the doorway
Singing “Thanks for the good time”

Night ranger
Where you gonna run to now
Night ranger (ranger)
Night ranger
Where you gonna run to now
Night ranger (ranger)
I can hear you calling calling
I can hear you calling
Night ranger
I can see you falling falling
I can see you falling
Night ranger
Where you gonna run to now
Night ranger

In the hot city
On a cool summer night
Four letter words
Make it alright
A Colorado school boy
Put it all on the line
Under the street lights
Having a good time…
Night ranger…
Night ranger…
Night ranger…
Night ranger…

I can hear you calling calling
I can hear you calling
Night ranger
I can see you falling falling
I can see you falling
Night ranger
Where you gonna run to now
Night ranger
