"Three O'clock Blues" as written by Jules Bihari and Riley B. King....
Now here it is three o' clock in the mornin'
Can't even close my eyes
Oh, three o' clock in the mornin', baby
Can't even close my eyes
Well, I can't find my baby
Lord, and I can't be satisfied

Lord, I've looked around me
Whoa, my baby can't be found
Whoa, looked all around me, people
Whoa, my baby can't be found
Well, if I don't find my baby
I'm goin' down to the boilin' ground, that's where the mens hang out

Well, I'm bound to find her
Yeah
Come here, baby

Well, goodbye, everybody
Lord, I believe this is the end
Oh, goodbye, everybody
Lord, I believe this is the end

Well, you can tell my baby
To forgive me for my sins

    General CommentI think this song is about a man who is up at 3 in the morning and can't sleep because he's thinking about a woman who he used to have.

    he's looked all around for someone else like her but he hasn't been able to find anyone who can match her. So he's going to the "Golden Ground" which i would interpret as heaven.

    He says good bye, and tells his ex to forgive him for killing himself/what he did poorly in the relationship.
