MORNIN' AFTER BABY LET ME DOWN, THE (Ray Griff) Ray Griff - 1970 Loretta Lynn - 1971 Bill Anderson - 1971 Jerry Lee Lewis - 1973 Ray Price - 1976 Mel Tillis - 1976 Carroll Baker - 1977 The alarm clock woke my sleeping, but I lay there for a minute With a million cobwebs clinging to my brain I stopped that bell from ringin' in the time it takes a heartbeat Then I settled back and closed my eyes again I reached out for my baby for some early mornin' lovin' Then the terrible truth came staggering through my head There was just an empty pillow and the mem'ry of his kisses Baby wasn't there beside me in the bed It's the morning after baby let me down It's the daybreak and the heartbreak that I found Only silence to torment me, no strong hands to touch me gently It's the morning after baby let me down There was nothing to hold on to, but the sheets that fell around me And I started into trembling like a leaf How could he ever leave me, he was more than just a lover And he knew all the ways to make me feel complete I can taste the salty teardrops, God, it's gettin' hard to swallow Hope a glass of wine will take his love away Got no appetite for eatin' just a sick and empty feeling What a good for nothing way to start the day It's the morning after baby let me down It's the daybreak and the heartbreak that I found Only silence to torment me, no strong hands to touch me gently It's the morning after baby let me down ************************* As recorded by JERRY LEE LEWIS: The alarm clock woke my sleeping, I lay there for a minute With a million cobwebs clingin' to my brain I stopped that bell from ringin' in about the time it takes a heartbeat Settled back and closed my eyes again Reached out for my baby for some early mornin' lovin' Terrible truth came staggering through my head Lord, there was nothin' to hold on to, but what lay around me That woman, she wasn't beside the Killer in the bed, and that's bad (It's the mornin' after baby let me down) Ooooh, she let me down (It's the daybreak and the heartbreak that I found) Ooh, get me down Only silence to torment me, no soft hand to touch me gently It's the mornin' after baby let me down There was nothin' to hold on to but the sheets that fell around me And, my God, I was tremblin' like a leaf How could that woman leave me, she was more than just a lover Every bit a lady warm and sweet I can taste the salt teardrops, it's gettin' hard to swallow But a glass of bourbon will take that lump away, yes it does Ain't got an appetite for eatin', I'm sick and I got an empty feelin' What a good for nothin' way to start the day, yeah (It's the mornin' after baby) Let me down, let me down (It's the daybreak and the heartbreak) Ooohh, Jerry Lee Lewis is down Only silence to torment me, no soft hand to touch me gently It's the mornin' after baby let me down Yeah, it's the mornin' after baby let me down (It's the daybreak) It's the daybreak and the heartbreak that I found Only silence to torment me, no soft hand gonna touch Jerry gently It's the mornin' after baby let me down It's the mornin' after Norma let me down Oh God, she let me down My dear wife did, she let me down Yeah, I'm tellin' it like it is My woman let the Killer down (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2012) ************************* As recorded by RAY PRICE: The alarm clock woke my sleeping and I lay there for a minute With a million cobwebs clinging to my brain I stopped that bell from ringing in the time it takes a heartbeat Then I settled back and closed my eyes again I reached out for my baby for some early mornin' lovin' And then the truth came staggering through my head There was nothing but the fragrance of her perfume on the pillow Baby wasn't there beside me in the bed It's the mornin' after baby let me down It's the daybreak and a heatache that I've found Only silence to torment me, no soft hand to touch me gently It's the mornin' after baby let me down I can taste the salty teardrops and it's gettin' hard to swallow Hope a glass of bourbon takes the lump away Got no appetite for eating, just a sick and empty feeling What a good for nothin' way to start the day It's the mornin' after baby let me down It's the daybreak and a heatache that I've found Only silence to torment me, no soft hand to touch me gently It's the mornin' after baby let me down It's the mornin' after baby let me down (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2012)
