[Verse]
D
Sherry was a waitress at the only joint in town
G
She had a reputation as a girl who'd been around
D
Down Main Street after midnight, a brand new pack of cigs
G
A fresh one hanging from her lips, a beer between her legs
A
She'd ride down to the river, meet with all her friends
G
The road goes on forever and the party never ends

[Verse]
D
Sonny was a loner, older than the rest
G
He was goin' in the Navy, but he couldn't pass the test
D
So he hung around town, sold a little pot
G
The Law caught wind of Sonny, one day he got caught
A
He was back in business when they set him free again
G
The road goes on forever and the party never ends

[Verse]
D
Sonny's playing eight ball at the joint where Sherry works
G
When some drunkin' out of towner put his hands up Sherry's skirt
D
Sonny took his pool cue, lay the drunk out on the floor
G
Stuck a dollar in her tip jar, and walked on out the door
A
She's running right beside him, reaching for his hand
G
The road goes on forever and the party never ends

[Verse]
D
They jump into his pickup, Sonny jammed her into gear
G
He looked on over at Sherry and said, "Let's get on out of here"
D
The stars were high above them, the moon was in the East
G
The sun was setting on them when they reached Miami Beach
A
They got a hotel by the water, a quart of Bombay gin
G
The road goes on forever and the party never ends

[Verse]
D
They soon ran out of money, but Sonny knew a man
G
Who knew some Cuban refugees who dealt in contraband
D
Sonny met the Cubans at a house just off the route
G
With a briefcase full of money and a pistol in his boot
A
The cards were on the table when the Law came bustin' in
G
The road goes on forever and the party never ends

[Verse]
D
The Cubans grabbed the goodies, Sonny grabbed the jack
G
Broke the bathroom window and crawled on out the back
D
Sherry had drove the pickup through the alley on the side
G
Where a lawman tackled Sonny and was reading him his rights
A
Sherry stepped in the alley with a single shot .410
G
The road goes on forever and the party never ends

[Verse]
D
They left the lawman lying, they made their getaway
G
Got back to the hotel just before the break of day
D
Sonny gave her all the money, and he blew a little kiss
G
If they ask you how this happened say I forced you into this
A
She watched as his taillights disappeared around the bend
G
The road goes on forever and the party never ends

[Verse]
D
It's Main Street after midnight, just like it was before
G
Twenty one months later at the local grocery store
D
Sherry buys a paper, a cold six pack of beer
G
Headlines read that Sonny's goin' to the chair
A
She drives out onto Main Street in her new Mercedes Benz
G
The road goes on forever and the party never ends
