Four In The Morning (Jerry Chesnut)
Recorded by Brendan Quinn & Cades County
1972 Velvet VE018 / Silver-Tongued Devil

It's four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me,
Wishing I'd never met her knowing if I'd forget her
How much better off she would be
The longer I hold on and the longer this goes on
The harder that it's gonna be.
But it's four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me

I've never deserved her God knows when I hurt her
That's the last thing that I want to do,
She tries but she can't tell how she feels but I know
Too well what she's going through,
If I love her so much I don't know why I can't do
The right thing and just let her be,
But it's four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me

Last night I told her this time it's all over making
Ten times I've told her goodbye,
Last night we broke up this morning I woke up
And for the tenth time I'm changing my mind,
I saw more love in her eyes when I left her
Than most foolish men will ever see,
And it's four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me.
