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

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
         Bb                             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
              Bb                  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
