Can I sleep in your arms tonight, sister?
Can I lay down with you here tonight?
I would shield you from the morning sun
We'll stroll arm and arm in the kingdom come
Can I sleep in your arms tonight?

You know I ain't never going back to Commerce City
Who knows how many times they've taken my last twenty dollar bill
There ain't no love lost there ain't no more time to kill

All my brothers they're up on Jersey landfill
And I ain't never going back to that town
Can I sleep in your arms tonight, sister?
Can I lay down with you here tonight?
And still your voice can remind me of better days
Yours is the voice that can carry me away
Let me sleep in your arms tonight

Darling, what was the truth that we learned?
As the whiskey finally eats your heart
And where was that place I was born tonight?
It's the one that leads straight to your heart
What was that truth that we learned?

Can I sleep in your arms tonight, sister?
Can I lay down with you here tonight?
Let me sleep in your arms tonight
Can I sleep in your arms tonight, sister?
