Midnight In Montgomery Song Lyrics

Midnight in Montgomery,

Silver Eagle, Lonely Road,

I was on my way to Mobile,

For a big New Year’s Eve show,

Stopped for just a minute,

To see a friend outside of town,

With my collar up, I found his name,

And felt the wind die down,

And a drunk man in a cowboy hat,

Took me by surprise,

Wearin’ shiny boots, a nudie suit, and haunted, haunted eyes,

He said: “Friend, it’s good to see you,

It’s nice to know you care”

Then the wind picked up and he was gone,

Was he ever really there?

******

‘Cause it’s midnight in Montgomery,

Just hear that whip-poor-will

See the stars light up the purple sky,

Feel that lonesome chill,

‘Cause when the wind is right,

You’ll hear his song,

Smell whisky in the air,

Midnight in Montgomery,

He’s always singin’ there,

******

Well, I climbed back on that eagle,

Took one last look around,

Red tail lights, shadow moves slow across the ground,

And off somewhere a midnight train is slowly passin’ by,

I can hear that wistle moanin’,

I’m so lonesome I could cry,

*******

‘Cause it’s midnight in Montgomery,

Just hear that whip-poor-will

See the stars light up the purple sky,

Feel that lonesome chill,

‘Cause when the wind is right,

You’ll hear his song,

Smell whisky in the air,

Midnight in Montgomery,

He’s always singin’ there,

He’s always singin’ there

Well, Hank’s always singin’ there….

Midnight In Montgomery Song Chords


Midnight in Montgomery

Silver Eagle, Lonely Road

I was on my way to Mobile

For a big New Year’s Eve show

Stopped for just a minute

To see a friend outside of town

My collar up, I found his name

Felt the wind die down

And a drunk man in a cowboy hat

took me by surprise

wearin’ shiny boots, a nudie suit

and haunted, haunted eyes

he said, friend its good to see you

its nice to know you care

and the wind picked up and he was gone or was he

ever really there


Cause it’s midnight in Montgomery

Just hear that whip-poor-will

See the stars light up the purple sky

Feel that lonesome chill

Cause when the wind is right you’ll hear his song,

Smell whiskey in the air

Midnight in Montgomery

He’s always singin’ there


I climbed back on that eagle

took one last look around

red tail lights, shadow moves slow across the ground

off somewhere a midnight train

slowly passes by

I can hear that whistle blowin’

I’m so lonesome I could cry


Cause it’s midnight in Montgomery

Just hear that whip-poor-will

See the stars light up the purple sky

Feel that lonesome chill

Cause when the wind is right you’ll hear his song,

Smell whiskey in the air

Midnight in Montgomery

He’s always singin’ there

He’s always singin’ there

Well Hank’s always singin’ there
