Verse 1: 

Up all night I could not sleep,
The whiskey that I drank was cheap,
With shakin' hands I went and I lit up my last cigarette.

Well the sun came, the night had fled,
And sleepy eyed I reached my bed,
I saw you sleepy dreamin' there all covered and warm.

Chorus:

South city midnight lady,
I'm much obliged indeed, 
You sure have saved this man whose soul was in need.

I thought there was no reason,
For all these things I do, 
But the smile that I sent out returned with you.

Verse 2:

When day has left the night behind,
And shadows roll across my mind,
I sometimes find myself alone out walkin' the streets.

Yes and when I'm feelin' down and blue,
Then all I do is think of you,
And all my foolish problems seem to fade away.



Patrick doesn't actually play the harmonics after the first chorus in
the song, but if you're playing on an acoustic it gives you a nice
little substitution for the slide that's actually playing in the studio
version, so I decided to throw it in there for good taste. Also I didn't 
include the solos since I'm not great with the slide, so that, and the 
timing you'll have to figure out. Sorry, but hope this is helpful, as
I'm pretty sure it's accurate. Comments please!

Thank you very much for this. I didn't know the guitar was tuned differently for his song. I now think that the high E string is also tuned down to D, so that the open strings play a G major chord.
