Soon After Midnight

Bob Dylan © 2012

(Official lyrics @

Jan/Mar 2012

  Tempest sessions, Groove Masters studio, Santa Monica CA  - jan/mar 2012  

I'm searchin' for phrases
To sing your praises
I need to tell someone
It's soon after midnight
And my day has just begun.

A gal named Honey
Took my money
She was passin' bye
It's soon after midnight
And the moon is in my eye.

My heart is cheerful
It's never fearful
I've been down on the killing floors
I'm in no great hurry
I'm not afraid of your fury
I've faced stronger walls than yours.

Charlotte's a harlot
Dresses in scarlet
Mary dresses in green
It's soon after midnight
And i've got a date with a fairy queen.

They chirp and they chatter
What does it matter?
They're lyin' an' they're dyin in their blood
Two-timin' Slim
Who's every heard of him?
I'll drag his corpse through the mud.

It's now or never
More than ever
When i met you i didn't think you do
It's soon after midnight
And i don't want nobody but you.  up
