B.B. King – Midnight Blues lyrics

Well, the clock is strikin' twelve
Baby, somebody's gotta go
I said the clock is strikin' twelve
Baby, somebody's gotta go
Gee, but I know I'm gonna miss you, honey
That’s one thing I know

When it's twelve o'clock in Memphis
It's one o'clock in San Antone
Twelve o'clock in Memphis, baby
One o'clock in San Antone
When it's midnight in California
Oh, I'll be so all alone

If midnight is an awful hour
Baby, why does it come so soon?
Midnight is an awful hour
Baby, why does it come so soon?
It never brings me happiness
Always leave me filled with gloom

Don't ever gamble, buddy
Unless you're sure that you can't lose
Hey, don't ever gamble, buddy
Unless you're sure that you can't lose
You better take my advice
Unless you want those midnight blues
