Song Description

One writer's experience at a diner, during the late night "graveyard shift", and what he sees all aroung him, including a hobo named gabriel, and even some singing angels. Poignant meanings deeper than the actual "story"...it's about one's life man!

Story Behind the Song

Broadjam Member Reviews

Lyrically, and with the loping melody, it has the appeal of Bob Seger's "Main Street." It's a good story about the working person's America. Terrific short intro. Essential to any song is a good melody and lyrics, which this has, and the addition of midi instrumentation compliments the tune very well. It has every man's voice, which is a better choice than the beautiful voice preferred by so many producers, and has more expression.

    - John Walradt

If you could rate more than five stars for originality, I would. That's what grabs me the most about this song. Very soulful. Sounds like something that would be written at 3AM in a truckstop somewhere after a night of hard drinkin'. Great chord changes here also. Sounds like a pleasant mixture of Pink Floyd and Paul Simon. I could listen to music like this all night long. Hope somebody more important than me agrees with that assessment. Really good and original song!

Lyrics

The Graveyard Shift
©2011, 2012 Words and Music by Warren Hein

In this blurry cafe
I write a song that tries to fit
Till daylight comes
No one here cares how long I sit
Tonight I look through dinosaur eyes
But man I'm no T-Rex, I won't slowly die
Another napkin attempt
To pen something the planet likes
But at this hour can I say it right?
It's the graveyard shift

That pretty waitress calls me angel
Can I find the nerve to talk to her?
Was that her skirt that brushed my table
Love at first sight, or for a bigger tip?
Hell who knows
It's the graveyard shift

When I add it all up
I'd live my stories again
When it's added up
I'll get a 7--no 8 out of 10
I'm the fool who limped those extra miles
Another suburb hero clicks through life's turnstile
This might be a helluva stretch
When God shines his big flashlight,
If not half bad I'll be half right
In this graveyard shift...

Outside that hobo talks to angels
He looks up and briefly our eyes meet
The late night crew says his name is Gabriel
In that neon glow his dancing is our gift
And so ironic
Even for the graveyard shift

It's the graveyard shift
The graveyard shift
The graveyard shift
