Overnight Cafe (Chicago)

All alone on the road near the other side of town; In the dark of the night and the rain was fallin' down; Up ahead, said a sign, was the Overnight Cafe; Maybe one for the road just to pass the night away. Then she came in the room and she moved across the floor With the look of a woman who's been through it all before; Then she smiled as she spoke, and it made me realize That the time was right, and the love was in her eyes; That the time was right, and the love was in her eyes. Then she asked and I told her that I was due in town. Hey mama, can you tell me what's on your mind? Then she told me that she'd like to see me hang around. And maybe I could take her home, Never know what could happen when we're both alone. Now I'm back on the road and I'm running overtime; Turn around if I could, and you know it crossed my mind; But I know I'll be back 'cause she made me realize That the time was right, and the love was in her eyes; That the time was right, and the love was in her eyes.
