Verse:
        Now here it is, three o'clock in the morning,
        Oh can't even close my eyes.  Oh yes.
        It's three o'clock in the morning baby,
        Oh, I can't even close my eyes.
        Well, you know I can't find my baby,
        Keep on lookin' be satisfied.

        I've looked around me, people,
        Hey, and my baby she knows she can't be found.
        Looked all around me, people,
        Oh, my baby, she can't be found.
        Well, you know if I don't find my baby,
        People, I'm going down to the Golden Ground.
        That's where the fellows hang out down there,
        They shoot pool, you know.

        Goodbye, everybody, 
        Oh, I do believe this is the end,
        Oh, oh, goodbye everybody,
        Oh I do believe that this is the end.
        Oh I want you to tell my baby,
        Oh, to forgive me for my sins.

                It's my own fault, baby,
                Treat me the way you wanna do,
                Oh, yes, my own fault, baby,
                Treat me the way you wanna do.
                Because when you would love me, baby, 
                Oh, a good time looked down,
                That wouldn't be true.

                 I go up on my feet and I had a lot of friends,
                 Now bad luck has hit me people,
                 And now I'm down again.
                 Oh, I wonder why?
                 Why does everything happen to me?
                 I'm blue and I'm lonesome, people,
                 My heart is filled with misery.

                 Once I had a lotta money,
                 They say the greatest man until
                 But bad luck has hit me now,
                 Pain has got me down.
                 Yes, I wonder why, people
                 Why does everything have to happen to me?
                 I say I'm blue and I'm lonesome, people,
                 My heart is filled with misery.

        would be as young as they are and to have as many people who seem
        to like me as they do today." -----B.B. King
