Jerry Lee Lewis – Twilight lyrics

With robbie robertson
Writer robbie robertson

Over by the wildwood
Hot summer night
We lay in the tall grass
Til the mornin' light
If I had my way I'd never
Get the urge to roam
A young man serves his country
And an old man guards the home
Never gave a second thought
Never crossed my mind
What's right and what's not
I'm not the judgin' kind
I could take the darkness oh
Storms in the skies
But we all got certain trials
Burnin' up inside
Don't send me no distant salutations
Or silly souvenirs from far away
Don't leave me alone in the twilight
Twilight is the loneliest time a day
Don't put me in a frame upon the mantel
'Fore memories turn dusty old and grey
Don't leave me alone in the twilight
Twilight is the loneliest time a day
