LAWD, YOU MADE THE NIGHT TOO LONG (Victor Young (m) Sam M Lewis (l) 1932) as recorded by Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters With Don Redman & his Orchestra April 13th 1932 New York also recorded by - Randolph Sutton '32 Louis Armstrong & his Orchestra Lawd, you made the night too long! You made the river flow, The flowers grow, You made the weak and the strong, But Lawd, you made the night too long! You made the robin sing A song of Spring, And me you gave a lonely song, Oh Lawd, you made the night too long! I got a heart and I got a cabin, The door is open wide. What good's a heart and what good's a cabin If nobody lives inside? You made the mountains high, The earth, the sky, So who am I to say you're wrong? But Lawd, you made the night too long! You gave me arms but they're empty; You gave me hope, it's empty too! I'm singin' hallelujah, Hallelujah to ya, Believin' in you. Believin' in you! You made a river flow, You made the flowers grow, You made the weak and the strong, Lawd, you made the night too long! You made the robin bring A happy song of Spring; You gave a lonely song, Lawd, you made the night too long! I got a heart and I got a cabin, My door is open wide. What good's a heart, what good's a cabin, If nobody lives inside? You made the mountain,the earth and the sky, To say you're wrong, who am I? Lawd, you made the night too long! (humming) Oh Lawd, oh Lawd! note - see also "SAM, YOU MADE THE PANTS TOO LONG" (Transcribed by Peter Akers - October 2013)
