The actual title is "I’ve got those late night all right summers almost over but the headlights too bright better pull it over cause the wife is gonna kill me if I don’t arrive completely sober blues, again" but it's a little long.

Lyrics
All I can remember was I was driving
Somewhere out on I95
And if I had a clue where I had come from
I might get a clue where I'd arrive
 
Hold back the rain, hold back the night
It’s warm in here and so cold outside
Hold back the rain, hold back the night
I don’t want to ever say goodbye/ say goodbye
 
And the more I think about it all the more I just don’t care
So I drive and I drive and but I don’t get anywhere
 
I’ve got those late night all right summers almost over but the headlights too bright better pull it over cause the wife is gonna kill me if I don’t arrive completely sober blues, again
 
Now drinking all alone has its advantage
I don’t have to answer to nobody but me
And though I’ve had a few I didn’t care for
I never had a drink that I didn’t need
 
Hold back the rain, hold back the night
It’s warm in here and so cold outside
Hold back the rain, hold back the night
I don’t want to ever say goodbye/ say goodbye
 
And the more I think about it all the more I just don’t care
So I drive and I drive and but I don’t get anywhere
 
I’ve got those late night all right summers almost over but the headlights too bright better pull it over cause the wife is gonna kill me if I don’t arrive completely sober blues, again
 
And I don't know why I’m just a Barfly
 
Now I’ve been tossed and turned and accosted
(Hold back the rain, hold back the night)
By demons and conspiracies
(Hold back the rain, hold back the night)
When all of my alternatives have been exhausted
(Hold back the rain, hold back the night
I turn to the killer that comforts me
( I don’t wanna ever say goodbye, say goodbye)
 
And the more I think about it all the more I just don’t care
So I drive and I drive and but I don’t get anywhere
