Country Lyrics: "All Night Long" By Ricky Hale

Updated on November 9, 2011
Source

Most of you all know me by thelyricwriter, but my name is Richard Hale and I go by "Ricky". I have wrote lyrics for as long as I can remember. A lot of my lyrics are not complete entirely or they need revised and edited. This country song was one of the first songs I ever wrote. Writing lyrics has always came naturally for myself. Most of the songs that I am writing on here were wrote in 10 minutes or less. These lyrics are full ownership of Richard Hale and can't be used unless given permission by Richard Hale.

This is the first song that I have posted and I plan on posting more. I want to give special thanks to all my friends that I have met here on Hubpages. I thank you for all your thoughtful comments and expertise. In due time, I will be finished with my "giving thanks" hub to the appropriate members that have been loyal to me. I just want you to know you all are special friends and I hope you feel the same. I have learn many things from you all and I hope you have from me as well. Thank you for your constant support and I wish you all nothing but the best. Love one another, help one another, and provide for one another. Life is beautiful, so explore it. Be yourself, you are special just the way you are. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

All Night Long

This song is a higher paced country song about a young couple enjoying a night out together. The scene is placed out in the country.


It's a perfect night

To get away

We can stay out

Til the break of day

The stars light up

In the midnight sky

Just for you and me

In the moonlight


CHORUS

Let's ride up the holler

Nowhere to be

We're close together

Just you and me

Turn that music up

Their playing our song

Let's keep it going baby

All night long


Park over in the field

Let's get out

Enjoy this time together

Cause I have no doubt

That this will be the first

Of many nights like this

Let's make special memories

That we'll be sure to miss


CHORUS

Let's ride up the holler

Nowhere to be

We're close together

Just you and me

Turn that music up

Their playing our song

Let's keep it going baby

All night long


Ohhhhh....

Have you ever wished

Upon a shooting star

I mean truly wished

Straight from the heart

Have you ever had

A dream come true

Well I have baby

Tonight with you


CHORUS

Let's ride up the holler

Nowhere to be

We're close together

Just you and me

Turn that music up

Their playing our song

Let's keep it going baby

All night long


You and me baby

Singing our song

Just holding one another

All night long

      Hey I like this one! Not many people are going to know what a "holler" is, but being an old country gal, I sure do. Would love to hear this set to music. Good job.

      You're right. I didn't know what "holler" meant until I looked it up. It's a hollow, right? Pretty cool song. Have you put it to music? I play the piano and the drums. Thanks again for your comments on my Hub, "The Wreck." Here's to music and lyrics that soothes our soul. Sending you golden Light. May peace be with you....Gary

      Coach, you are very welcome and I haven't had a chance to put anything to music yet. I hope so in the near future though Coach. I wish I was able to concentrate on it full time, but at this point in my life, I just can't. Your a very wise man and I am a follower of your work. Well, let's just say I believe in your message. Your outlook on emotions and life are remarkable and you have strong points. It has been a pleasure.

      Very romantic and catchy. I loved it. Seems like it would be a song that would keep playing inside one's head for awhile after hearing it, especially the chorus.

      Voted up across the board except for funny.

      Can't believe you can write things like this in 10 minutes! Glad you're going to be sharing more songs with us and I'm proud to be one of your loyal followers.

      Hey there Will. Thanks for coming by. Although I know I should, this one, no. I never worked with professionals until recently. I have written over 300 complete songs and nearly 700 drafts. I have a lot of editing to do, but I hope I can get all of that done in the next few months.

      Hi Ricky,

      I could listen to these lyrics "All Night Long."

      Thank you so much Sueswan. I wish you could see my other song, but Hubpages keeps saying it has duplicated information. I believe someone is doing it purposely. Nothing on it is duplicated. I have resubmit it 23 times in the past 2 days. But, I appreciate the comment and vote:)

      What a pain that is Ricky!

      Have you asked on the forum if anybody else has encountered this problem and if it was rectified.

      Take Care and have a good evening.

      It truly is a big pain Sueswan. Yes I asked the forum but I don't have an answer. They keep saying, "something must be copied". No it isn't! Nothing is copied. This is not the first time. This site needs to address these matters. Thanks for the concern though.

      Thata is such a shame Ricky. This needs to be sorted out by hubpages.

      However I do love your lyrics, song writing is your natural talent, if you can come up with something like this in 10 minutes then you do have a gift for it.

      I do wish you well and hope that you do find a future in music.

      Voting up all the way.

      Thanks Rosemay. It just comes natural to me. I have written a few just over 7 minutes. I can ususally get 2 verses in and the chorus in 5 minutes. The bridge and last touches are the hardest for me, well, per say. It all comes easy, just the last takes more time. I decided to remove the last song. I know it wasn't put no where else online and it is mine. I just don't know?

      I don't know about putting your songs on here, Lyricwriter. You get praise, but how many people will take off with your words? Be cautious.

      You do make a good point Ann, but I do have them all under copyright, plus these are bottom tier songs that I have wrote, in my opinion that is. I never publish my good songs or the ones that have been negotiated. I see your point though.

      Deb, thanks again for taking the time to read this song. I do sing a little, but I am much better at writing them I believe. I sing good enough to do a demo cd though. Would give anything to get them to a country singer.
