Midnight and Broke Down

 

Midnight in London, lord Iím sinking low

Portrait of a train wreck on my soul

Greensboro Woman on my radio

That man always gave me some place to go

Some poor restless girl will share my lonely bed

I will drift away and rest my head

 

Midnight and broke down

Ainít no place to be

I will dream of another

Far across the sea

 

Sing it into sunrise. Water slips from my eyes

And falls to the floor of a jungle of crooked smiles

The foggy shadows call. The deep black dark will fall

And force its sullen silence in from the hall

For a pardon begs the mind, slipping slow behind

It cannot hold you close or make you shine

 

Midnight and broke down

Ainít no place to be

I will dream of another

Far across the sea
