BURNING THE MIDNIGHT OIL (Porter Wagoner) Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton - 1971 BOTH: Here we sit lookin' at each other Seems we're at a loss for what to say Ties bind us both with someone else We don't want to hurt, but we must break away DOLLY: And tonight I'll sit home a-thinkin' PORTER: And tonight I'll sit home a-drinkin' BOTH: We both live in seperate homes where there's no love at all Stayin' up late, burnin' the midnight oil (Instrumental Break) BOTH: Tomorrow we'll meet here in this same place With love and desire that just won't wait In each other's arms we'll dream for a little while Then when it's time to leave it'll nearly drive us wild DOLLY: And tonight again I'll sit home a-thinkin' PORTER: And tonight again I'll sit home a-drinkin' BOTH: We both live in seperate homes where there's no love at all Stayin' up late, burnin' the midnight oil Stayin' up late, burnin' the midnight oil (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2011)
