Burning The Midnight Oil
Recorded by Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton
written by Porter Wagoner

C G7
Here we sit looking at each other
Seems we're at a loss for what to say
Ties bind us both with someone else
C G7 C
We don't want to hurt but we must break away

G7 C
And tonight I'll sit home a thinking
G7 C
And tonight I'll sit home a drinking
We both live in separate homes where there's no love at all
C G7 C
Staying up late burning the midnight oil

Tomorrow we'll meet here in the same place
Where love and desires that just won't wait
In each others arms we'll dream for a little while
C G7 C
Then when it's time to leave it'll nearly drive us wild

Repeat #2
