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 cowoy hat
Took me by surprise
He said, "Friend it's good to see you,
It's nice to you know ya 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 songs,
Smell whiskey in the air
Midnight in Montgomery
He's always singing there
Well I climbed back on that eagle
Took one last look around
Through red tail lights, the shadow moved slow across the ground
And off somewhere a midnight train is slowly passing by
I could hear that whistle moan
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 songs,
Smell whiskey in the air
Midnight in Montgomery, he's always singing there
He's always singing there
Hank's always singing there
End
