  • Lyrics
  • I go out walkin' after midnight
    Out in the moonlight
    Just like we used to do
    I'm always walkin' after midnight searchin' for you

    I walk for miles along the highway
    Well, that's just my way
    Of sayin' I love you
    I'm always walkin' after midnight, searchin' for you

    I stop to see a weepin' willow
    Cryin' on his pillow
    Maybe he's cryin' for me
    And as the skies turn gloomy
    Night winds whisper to me
    I'm lonesome as I can be

    I go out walkin' after midnight
    Out in the starlight
    Just hopin' you may be
    Somewhere a-walkin' after midnight, searchin' for me

    I stop to see a weepin' willow
    Cryin' on his pillow
    Maybe he's cryin' for me
    And as the skies turn gloomy
    Night winds whisper to me
    I'm lonesome as I can be

    I go out walkin' after midnight
    Out in the starlight
    Just hopin' you may be
    Somewhere a-walkin' after midnight, searchin' for meWriter/s: ALAN BLOCK, ALAN W. BLOCK, DON HECHT

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 21st 1957, Patsy Cline performed "Walkin' After Midnight" on the CBS-TV program 'Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts'; and was judged by the audience (via applause meter) as that night's winner...
    And less than a month later on February 17th her covered version entered Billboard's Top 100 chart; eventually it peaked at #12 and spent 16 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #2 on Billboard's C&W Tracks chart...
    It would be three years before she would enter the Top 100 again; in 1961 her "I Fall To Pieces" peaked at #12 and "Crazy" reached #9...
    R.I.P. Ms. Cline, born Virginia Patterson Hensley, (1932 - 1963).
  • Carolyn from Knoville, TnI think Patsy's unique voice was perfect for this. I'd love to hear some country music like this today.
  • Annie from El Paso, TxNot to put down Patsy, but Nina Diaz from the band Girl in a Coma totally improved this song. Her voice is so captivating!
  • Briar from Hazard, KyI do like this song. Nobody could do it better than Patsy. On a side note, Garth Brooks covered this song (Why Lord Why?) and ruined it.
  • Krista from Carbondale, PaKellie Pickler's version of this song is really good.
