    The alarm clock woke my sleepin' I lay there for a minute
    With a million cobwebs clinging to my brain
    I stopped that bell from ringing about the times it takes a heartbeat
    Then I settled back and closed my eyes again

    Reached out for my baby for some early morning lovin'
    Terrible truth came staggerin' through my head
    Lord there was nothin' that goes on to lay around me
    That woman she wasn't beside the Killer in the bed

    (It's the mornin' after baby let me down
    It's the daybreak and the heartbreak that I found)
    Only silence to torment me no soft hands to touch me gently
    It's the mornin' after baby let me down

    There was nothing to hold on to but the sheets that fell around me
    My God I was tremblin' like a leaf
    How could that woman leave me she was more than just a lover
    Every bit a lady warm and sweet

    I can taste the salty teardrops it's gettin' hard to swallow
    But a glass of bourbon takes that lump away (yes it does)
    Ain't got no appetite for eatin' I got sick I got an empty feelin'
    What a good for nothing way to start the day

    (It's the mornin' after baby...
    Yeah it's the mornin' after baby...
