Alan Jackson spent an evening one stormy night in Montgomery Alabama and payed a visit to the local cemetery to pay his respects to Hank Williams who is buried there. Upon returning to Nashville, Jackson sat down with a dong writing friend of his Don Sampson and together co-wrote this song called Midnight In Montgomery as a tribute song to Hank Williams.

MIDNIGHT IN MONTGOMERY Lyrics


Midnight in Montgomery Silver Eagle, Lonely Road
I was on my way to Mobile, for a big New Year's Eve show
Stopped for just a minute, to see a friend outside of town
With my collar up, I found his name , and felt the wind die down

And a drunk man in a cowboy hat , took me by surprise
Wearin' shiny boots, a nudie suit, and haunted, haunted eyes
He said: "Friend, it's good to see you , It's nice to know you care"
Then the wind picked up and he was gone , was he ever really there?

'Cause it's midnight in Montgomery
Just hear that whip-poor-will
See the stars light up the purple sky
Feel that lonesome chill
'Cause when the wind is right, you'll hear his song smell whisky in the air
Midnight in Montgomery , He's always singin' there

Well, I climbed back on that eagle, took one last look around
Red tail lights, shadow moves slow across the ground
And off somewhere a midnight train is slowly passin' by
I can hear that wistle moanin', I'm so lonesome I could cry

'Cause it's midnight in Montgomery
Just hear that whip-poor-will
See the stars light up the purple sky
Feel that lonesome chill
'Cause when the wind is right you'll hear his song, smell whisky in the air
Midnight in Montgomery
He's always singin' there, he's always singin' there
Well, Hank's always singin' there

MIDNIGHT IN MONTGOMERY - IN MEMORY OF HANK
