5:01 Blues
Recorded by Merle Haggard
Written by Michael Garvin and Jeff Tweel

G7 C F
I got those 5:01 blues another work day is over
C G7
Time to go home but no one to go home to
That whistle just blew bad news
I'll punch out and put in another long night again missin' you
I got these 5:01 blues

I used to watch that old clock on the wall
Wishin' I could make time fly

But ever since you walked out on me
C F G7
Quittin' time just makes me want to cry

Repeat #1

I could go out and find somebody new
But I'd only spoil her fun

My mind still says that it's time to love you
C F G7
When the clock says the work day is done

Repeat 1 x2
