Country Lament #252

It’s so early in the morning
Where are you? Where are you?
It’s so early in the morning
Where are you?
I cannot seem to find you
How that morning sun can blind you
Oh, it’s so early in the morning
Where are you?

Seems I woke up just to miss you
Seems I’ll never be the same
Seems this heart’ll have to make do
That’s the one rule of this game

Oh these tossed and turmoiled sheets
And my fuzzy scrambled head
Them satellites circle above me
And this is what they said

It’s so early in the morning
Where are you? Where are you?
It’s so early in the morning
Where are you?
I cannot seem to find you
How that morning sun can blind you
Oh, it’s so early in the morning
Where are you?

My bare feet touch the cold floor
Then I shuffle down the hall
Tired bones they fuss and sputter
This old house with bare white walls

I step out on the back porch
Pray this day will bring you here
Along with birdsong, new bright blossoms
And your voice ticklin’ my ears

It’s so early in the morning
Where are you? Where are you?
It’s so early in the morning
Where are you?
I cannot seem to find you
How that morning sun can blind you
Oh, it’s so early in the morning
Where are you?

I didn’t mean to scare you
Little darling, precious light
Never thought I might upset you
With the words I spoke last night

Now you’ve gone and up and left me
Sweet lord, what have you left me?
It’s so lonely here this morning
Without you

It’s so early in the morning
Where are you? Where are you?
It’s so early in the morning
Where are you?
I cannot seem to find you
How that morning sun can blind you
Oh, it’s so early in the morning
Where are you?
