About Bloody Mary Morning

"Bloody Mary Morning" is a song written by American country music singer-songwriter Willie Nelson. Nelson wrote the song inspired by his struggles to become a "better parent". It was originally released in the 1970 RCA Records release Both Sides Now with the title "Bloody Merry Morning". During a party in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1972, Nelson performed the song along with others he planned to include on an upcoming concept album. Nelson impressed another guest at the party, Atlantic Records vice-president Jerry Wexler. Wexler offered him a contract to be a part of the new country music division of Atlantic, which Nelson accepted after ending his unsuccessful run with RCA. "Bloody Mary Morning" was included in Nelson's concept album Phases and Stages, where the meaning of the song was shifted by the context of the album, changing the theme to a man who is left by his wife. Released as a single, it peaked at number 17 in Billboard's Country singles in 1974, later becoming an essential part of Nelson's live performances repertoire.

Well, it's a bloody Mary morning
Baby left me without warning 
Sometime in the night
So I'm flyin' down to Houston 
Forgetting her's the nature of my flight

As we taxi toward the runway 
With the smog and haze 
Reminding me of how I feel
Just a country boy who's learnin' 
That the pitfalls of the city 
Are extremely real

All the night life and the parties 
And temptation and deceit 
The order of the day
Well it's a bloody Mary mornin' 
'Cause I'm leavin' baby somewhere in LA

Well, it's a bloody Mary morning
Baby left me without warning 
Sometime in the night
So I'm flyin' down to Houston 
Forgetting her's the nature of my flight

Our golden jet is airborne 
And flight fifty cuts a path 
Across the mornin' sky
And a voice comes through the speaker 
Reassuring us flight fifty 
Is the way to fly

And a hostess takes our order 
Coffee, tea or something stronger 
To start off the day
Well it's a bloody Mary morning 
'Cause I'm leavin' baby somewhere in LA

Well, it's a bloody Mary morning
Baby left me without warning 
Sometime in the night
So I'm flyin' down to Houston 
Forgetting her's the nature of my flight
Yeah I'm flyin' down to Houston 
Forgetting her's the nature of my flight

Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. more »
