About Tomorrow Night

"Tomorrow Night" is a 1939 song written by Sam Coslow and Will Grosz. A version by Horace Heidt and His Musical Knights (vocal by The Heidtlites) was very popular in 1939. In 1948, Lonnie Johnson had a crossover hit on King Records (Johnson had also previously recorded the song for Paradise records in 1947) with the song, which had Johnson on guitar and Simeon Hatch on piano. Lonnie Johnson's version hit number one on the R&B charts for seven non consecutive weeks and peaked at number nineteen on the pop chart. Actually, the Paradise and King recordings are the same basic recording, however King Records overdubbed a vocal chorus over the original Paradise version, and it's the overdubbed recording that became the hit. A "stereo" version is known to exist where the Paradise basic track is heard on the left channel and the overdubbed version with the chorus is heard on the right channel Lonnie Johnson's version of "Tomorrow Night" would become his theme song and transformed the song into a blues standard.

Tomorrow night
Will you remember what you said tonight?
Tomorrow night
Will all thrills be gone?
Tomorrow night
Will it be just another memory,
Or just another lovely song
That's in my full heart to linger on?

Your lips are so tender,
Your heart is beating fast
And you're willing to surrender.
Tell me, darling, will it last?

Tomorrow night
Will you be with me when the moon's bright?
Tomorrow night
Will you say those lovely things you said tonight?

Tomorrow night
Will it be just another memory
Or just another lovely song
That's in my full heart to linger on?

Your lips are so tender,
Your heart is beating fast
And you're willing to surrender.
Tell me, darling, will it last?

Tomorrow night
Will you remember what you said tonight?
Tomorrow night
Will you say those lovely things you said tonight?
