The Charlie Daniels Band Midnight Wind Lyrics

Last updated: 06/06/2012 12:00:00 PM

He blew in town at midnight and he didn't mean to stay
He found her just at closing time at the Alamo Cafe
And the way he smiled and carried on it kinda made her day
So by the time that she left he left with her
And she let him borrow money and she let him drive her car
She didn't really trust him but she done and gone too far

When the midnight moon is shining when it's shining down the way
If he blew in on the midnight wind he may never pass this way again

She knew down in her heart that he would only stay awhile
But sometimes she was a woman and sometimes she was a child
Then just about the time that she was learning how to smile
One Tuesday night he came up missing
And sometimes now she thinks she hears his footsteps cross the floor
But it's just that midnight wind howling around the door

When the midnight moon is shining...
When the midnight moon is shining...
