[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.

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.

You really need to go all the way with an OPEN " G " TUNING! The high " E " needs to drop to a " D "
