Half past two in the morning

BluesMatters 2019


Half past two in the morning

Folks have left the music hall

Across the room a barmaid’s yawning

A cleaner’s wiping by the wall


Half past two in the morning well in to the night

Half past two in the morning well in to the night


Lights are out on this murky stage

Empty chairs and tables on the floor

Our gig just wrote another page

Faint voices from the back-stage door


Half past two in the morning well in to the night

Half past two in the morning well in to the night


One last beer now makes the round

And smoke is in the air

Soon we all are homeward bound

A brimming ashtray on the snare


With blisters on our fingertips

Our voices rather hoarse

Aching heads and creaky hips

But excitement high of course


Half past two in the morning well in to the night

Half past two in the morning well in to the night


Half past two in the morning

Tunes are ringing through our head

Soon a new day is dawning

But now it’s time for bed
