"Midnight at the Movies" as written by and Justin Townes Earle....
well the couple in the corner
been goin' at it all night long
man in the back puttin' bets out on the phone
and i ain't got nowhere to be
ain't nobody waitin' at home for me
and there's nothin' lonelier than
midnight at the movies again

there's a girl named martha
that meets me here on saturday night
never says too much
she just sits down beside me
and puts her hand in mine
she's got a gentle way
that keeps me from feelin' so lonely
she always shows up late
and leaves before the credits roll
and i never watch her leave
i just close my eyes and pretend i'm asleep
until the second feature begins
midnight at the movies again

so it's
half price
double feature
two and a quarter after seven o'clock
and there's
no smokin'
no drinkin'
get your candies and your red hots
get your candies and your red hots

so shut out the lights
and tell those fools down front to take a seat
and if you see my martha
tell her i'm in the corner and just wake me if i'm asleep
