1. I go out walk-in' af-ter mid-night
              F7                               C
   Out in the moon-light, just like we used to do
               C               F7
   I'm al-ways walk-in' af-ter mid-night
   G7             C     C     G7
   Search-in' for you |    -     |

2. I walk for miles a-long the high-way
                     F7                       C
   Well, that's just my way of say-in' I love you

Chorus: I stop to see a weep-in' wil-low

        Cry-in' on his pil-low
        C                       C7
        May-be he's cry-in' for me
            F 
        And as the skies turn gloom-y

        Night winds whis-per to me 
            C                    G      G7

              F7                               C
   Out in the star-light, just hop-ing you may be 
                C               F7
   Some-where a-walk-in' af-ter mid-night
   G7             C      C     G7
   Search-in' for me  |     -      |
