Midnight Hour Blues
By Leroy Carr

In the wee midnight hour, long before the break of day
In the wee midnight hour, long before the break of day
When the blues creep up on you and carry your mind away

While I lay in my bed and cannot go to sleep
While I lay in my bed and cannot go to sleep
While my heart's in trouble and my mind is sinking deep

My mind was running back to days of long ago
My mind was running back to days of long ago
And the one I love, I don't see her any more


Blues, why do you worry me, why do you stay so long?
Blues, why do you worry me, why do you stay so long?
You come to me yesterday, been with me all night long

I'd been so worried, I didn't know what to do
I'd been so worried, I didn't know what to do
So I guess that's why I've had these midnight hour blues

What a GREAT tune. By a GREAT singer, with GREAT piano and Scrapper Blackwell's guitar. Leroy Carr is my favorite blues singer, and this is one of his all-time best cuts. Thanks -- even thinking about it makes me feel good.

The album that Columbia put out of Carr and Blackwell was always one of my treasured records. I've never seen it listed as re-issued on CD, but one day I was looking through used CDs and there it was... what a find! I like Blues Before Sunrise even better..

Midnight Hour Blues, Blues Before Sunrise, Take a Walk Around the Corner, Mean Mistreater, Do That Bobo, I Believe I'll Make a Change -- some of the Leroy Carr tunes that will get me through the long drive to IBMA.

"Midnight Hour Blues" served as a model for "From Four Till Late" by Robert Johnson. Leroy Carr was highly influential of his contemporaries and Robert Johnson was no exception. His "Kind Hearted Woman Blues" and "Love In Vain" also had strong references to the popular piano player.
