It’s three in the mornin’ and I’m closin’ the doors You seem like a good man and I’m sorry you’re low, But it’s three in the mornin’, and time to go home”. Thank you dear Bonnie for treatin’ me so kind It’s been a good night everybody’s feelin’ fine I walked out the door and I breathed the cold night air It’s three in the mornin’ and nobody cares. Chorus One more mile and I’ll be home I’ll hang my hat and I’ll rest these weary bones Goodbye sorrows, I’m leavin’ you this morn It’s three in the mornin’ and I’m goin’ home. Verse 3 Well the thoughts that cross a mind, they ain’t hardly fair Sorrows and heartaches bound to take their share Hold on just a while, there’s a sweet release It’s three in the mornin’ and I’m beggin’ please (Chorus) Verse 4 Well the road was windin’ and the trees were flyin’ past Tears were fallin’ as I felt the crash Goodbye mean ol’ world, this will be my last It’s three in the mornin’ and I’m fadin’ fast (Chorus) Tag It’s three in the mornin’ and I’m goin’ home
