The Morning After Baby Let Me Down
Mel Tillis
Album: Heart Healer - 1977


Capo 1 (Recorded in G#)

Intro: G-D-G-D

     G
The alarm clock woke my sleepin' but I lay there for a minute
         C                             G
With a million cobwebs clingin' to my brain

I stopped the bell from ringin' in the times it takes a heartbeat
         A                              D
Then I settled back and closed my eyes again

    G
I reached out for my baby for some early morning loving
           C                                        G
Then the terrible truth came staggering through my head
            C                               G               C
There was nothing but the fragrance of her perfume on the pillow
      G             D              G
Baby wasn't there beside me in the bed

G                       C           G
It's the mornin' after baby let me down
                                            D
It's the daybreak and a heartbreak that I found
       G                        C
Only silence to torment me, no soft hands to touch me gently
           G            D           G  D-G-D
It's the mornin' after baby let me down

           G
There was nothing to hold on to except the sheets that fell around me
        C                            G
And I started into tremblin' like a leaf

How could that woman leave me she was more than just a lover
              A                   D
She was every bit a lady warm and sweet

       G
I can taste the salty teardrops and it's gettin' hard to swallow
          C                                  G
I hope a glass of bourbon can take the pain away
          C                          G              C
I got no appetite for eatin' just a sick and empty feelin'
        G               D                G
What a good for nothing way to start the day


G                       C           G
It's the mornin' after baby let me down
                                            D
It's the daybreak and a heartbreak that I found
       G                        C
Only silence to torment me, no soft hands to touch me gently
           G            D           G
It's the mornin' after baby let me down

G                       C           G
It's the mornin' after baby let me down
                                            D
It's the daybreak and a heartbreak that I found
