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, night had fled, and sleepy-eyed, I reached my bed
I saw you sleepy dreamin' there, all covered and warm

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

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

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

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
Hey, but the smile that I sent out, returned with you
