Rich, Charlie - Midnight Blues Lyrics

Midnite, you know you're doing me wrong
Midnite, doing me wrong
Keeping me up all night long
All night, all night long
Everytime I feel a little bit free
I hear those blues, midnite blues
Commence to calling me

Midnite, why don't you leave me alone
Leave me, leave me alone
I'm trying my best to make a happy home
Happy, happy home
Everytime I feel a little bit free
I hear those blues, midnite blues
Commence to calling me

I just can't help to feel a little bit ashamed
Everytime I hear you call my name
I'm blaming you for all the bad things I've done
Blame you for what I've done
Still I will admit that every once in a while it was fun

Yeah but midnite, don't keep me running around
Don't keep running around
I made up my mind, I'm gonna settle down
Ah ha, settle down
Everytime I feel a little bit free
I hear those blues, midnite blues
Blues, midnite blues
I hear those blues, midnite blues
Commence to calling me
That blues is a calling me
Midnite blues is a calling me

    Great song! Early songs are fantastic..more a jazzster than a Rocker and vocally Elvis inspired..

    He got his singing style from African Americans.

  5. Joe Kelly

    Had the pleasure of drumming for Charlie Rich in late 60's at a club called The Showboat in Hot Springs National Park - Arkansas.Last time I went through H.S the former Showboat is now a Chinese Restaurant.

    If you listen to this with headphones, you can hear him from 2:02 to 2:10 struggling with his breath. He's singing so far behind the beat and with so much restraint and the bass and drummer is such motherfuckers that it's eating him alive.

  7. Monica Onofre
