Alan Jackson – Midnight In Montgomery lyrics

Midnight in Montgomery, silver eagle, lonely road

I was on my way to Mobile for a big New Years Eve show

I stopped for just a minute to see a friend outside of town

Put my collar up, found his name, and felt the wind die down

Then a drunk man in a cowboy hat took me by surprise

Wearing shiny boots, a Nudi suit and haunting haunted eyes

He said "Friend it’s good to see you, it’s nice to know you care"

Then the wind picked up and he was gone

Was he ever really there

‘Cause it’s midnight in Montgomery

Just hear that whippoorwill

See the stars light up the purple sky

Feel that lonesome chill

When the wind it’s right, you’ll hear his songs

Smell whiskey in the air

Midnight in Montgomery

He’s always singing there

I climbed back on my eagle, took one last look around

Through red tail lights a shadow moved slow across the ground

Off somewhere a midnight train is slowly passing by

I could hear that whistle moaning

I’m so lonesome I could cry

‘Cause it’s midnight in Montgomery

Just hear that whippoorwill

See the stars light up the purple sky

Feel that lonesome chill

When the wind is right, you’ll hear his songs

Smell whiskey in the air

Midnight in Montgomery

He’s always singing there

He’s always singing there

Hank’s always singing there
