No More Ballads

Lyrics: Dawson?, Kemp?
Music: Dawson?, Kemp?

This is from a New Riders of the Purple Sage concert on 20 January 1984. That was a concert where they introduced a number of new songs, and I assume this is another one. The title is a guess. It was never recorded for one of their albums.

I just got laid off my job too
[?] but it will do
I thought times was hard but now they're bad

Friday night don't matter now
we're going to this club downtown
Tonight I just got to have the band

Chorus
No more ballads just boogie tonight
No slow songs just get us high
I keep dancing and I feel all right
So no more ballads just boogie tonight

I've been working all my life
For my kids and for my wife
We ain't got our dreams but we get by

Oh we know the world ain't right
But we still have our fun at night
And if we can't get rich we still get high

[chorus]

I've been working all my life
For my kids and for my wife
We ain't got our dreams but we get by

Oh we know the world ain't right
But we still have our boogie nights
And if we can't get rich we still get high

[chorus]
