Three Hours Past Midnight

Album: Three Hours Past Midnight (1956)
  • It is three hours past midnight
    And my baby's nowhere around
    Yes three hours past midnight
    And my baby's nowhere around

    Well, I listen so hard to hear her footsteps
    I ain't even heard a sound
    Well, I toss and tumble on my pillow
    But I just can't close my eyes

    Oh, I toss and tumble on my pillow
    But I just can't close my eyes
    If my baby don't come back pretty soon
    Yes, I just can't be satisfied now

    Look out
    Look out
    Keep right on

    Well, I tried so hard to take
    But my baby's drivin' me insane
    Well, I tried so hard to take
    Oh yeah

    But my baby's drivin' me insane
    Well if she's don't come back pretty soon
    Yeah, gonna catch that midnight train
    Yeah
