SAN JOSÉ

Jack Tempchin, Warren Hughey

Well Lucky came in he was tall and thin
He said Hey now brothers where have you been?
I'm just like you I'm not the Lone Ranger
But I've been livin' on the edge of danger
Sometimes I might get down on my luck
Can one of you front me 'bout a million bucks
Then Willy came in as the sun went down
He said remember when we played on the streets downtown
The girls flew hot and the dollars flew heavy
When I sang about love in a 55 Chevy
Nowadays my life it's ain't so free
I wish I could remember who I used to be

And the moon rose high in the southern sky
And they said we'll be buddies 'til the day we die
They raised their glass in a silent way
And swore they'd meet again someday
Down by the bay in a small café
Way down in San José

We will meet again someday
Way down south in San José
We will meet again someday
Way down south in San José

Then Bear stood up and he raised his hand
Like a phophet of plenty from the promised land
And when he spoke, silence fell
His voice was deep as a wishing well
He said there's a star that'll shine so bright
It takes three fools just to see it's light
And sure as a fool is sometimes wise
I predict to both you guys
That some magic night in history
That star's gonna shine on you and me
And we'll be dancing wild and free
Back on the edge of the mystery
It's all just a trick of the mind and tongue
So let's stay high and let's stay young
And the runway lights were red and green
The harbor lights like a sailor's dream
When they raised their glass in a silent way
And swore they'd meet again someday
Down by the bay in a small café
Way down in San José

We will meet again someday
Way down south in San José
We will meet again someday
Way down south in San José
