Patsy Cline (Alan Block and Donn Hecht, 1957)


4/4 | d - D u d - D u |
      1   2   3   4

I go out [C] walking after [C7] midnight
Out in the [F] moonlight just like we used to do
I'm always [C] walking after [F] midnight
[G7] Searching for [C] you [G7]

I walk for [C] miles along the [C7] highway
Well that's just [F] my way of saying I love you
I'm always [C] walking after [F] midnight
[G7] Searching for [C] you [C7]

I stopped to [F] see a weeping willow
Crying on his pillow [C] maybe he's crying for me [C7]
And [F] as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I'm [C] lonesome as I can [G7] be

I go out [C] walking after [C7] midnight
Out in the [F] starlight just hoping you may be
Somewhere a [C] walking after [F] midnight
[G7] Searching for [C] me [C7]

I stopped to [F] see a weeping willow
Crying on his pillow [C] maybe he's crying for me [C7]
And [F] as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I'm [C] lonesome as I can [G7] be

I go out [C] walking after [C7] midnight
Out in the [F] starlight just hoping you may be
Somewhere a [C] walking after [F] midnight
[G7] Searching for [C] me

[C] Somewhere a walking after [F] midnight
[G7] Searching for [C] me

[G] Yonder comes Miss [C] Rosie, how in the world do you [G] know
[G] I can tell her by her [D7] apron, and the dress she [G] wore
Umbrella on her [C] shoulder, a piece of paper in her [G] hand
[G] I heard her tell the [D7] captain, turn loose my [G] man

Chorus
Let the midnight [C] special, shine its light on [G] me
[G] Let the midnight [D7] special, shine its everlovin' light on [G] me

When you get up in the [C] mornin', when that big bell [G] rings
[G] You go marchin' to the [D7] table, you see the same old [G] thing
Knife and fork are on the [C] table, ain't nothin' in my [G] pan
[G] And you say a word a- [D7] bout it, you get in trouble with the [G] man

Chorus
Let the midnight [C] special, shine its light on [G] me
[G] Let the midnight [D7] special, shine its everlovin' light on [G] me

If you ever go to [C] Houston, boy you'd better walk [G] right
[G] And you better not [D7] gamble, and you better not [G] fight
Cuz Benson Crocker will ar- [C] rest you, and Jimmy Boone will take you [G] down
[G] And you can bet your bottom [D7] dollar, that you're Sugarland [G] bound

Chorus
Let the midnight [C] special, shine its light on [G] me

Well, jumpin' little [C] Judy, she was a mighty fine [G] gal
[G] She brought [D7] jumpin', to this whole round [G] world
Well, she brought it in the [C] mornin', just awhile 'fore [G] day
[G] Well, she brought me the [D7] news, that my wife was [G] dead

That started me to [C] grievin', whoopin', hollerin' and [G] cryin'
[G] Then I began to [D7] worry, 'bout my great long [G] time

Chorus
Let the midnight [C] special, shine its light on [G] me
[G] Let the midnight [D7] special, shine its everlovin' light on [G] me [G↓]
