Hee Haw Gospel Quartet performs "Walking After Midnight"

 

"Walkin' After Midnight" is a song written by Alan Block and Donn Hecht and recorded by American country music artist Patsy Cline. The song was originally given to pop singer Kay Starr; however, her label rejected it. The song was left unused until Hecht rediscovered it when writing for Four Star Records. Originally Cline was not fond of "Walkin' After Midnight", but after making a compromise with her label she recorded it.

In January 1957, Cline performed the song on an episode of the CBS television program, Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts. It garnered a strong response from viewers and was therefore rush-released as a single February 11, 1957. "Walkin' After Midnight" became Cline's first major hit single, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard country music chart and No. 12 on its pop chart. Although the song was her only hit until 1961, the single version sold over one million copies and is often included on authoritative lists of the all-time greatest songs in country music.

On The Jericho Road lyrics

 

As you travel along on the Jericho Road

Does the world seem all wrong and heavy your load

Just bring it to Christ, your sins all confess

On the Jericho Road your heart will be blessed

 

On the Jericho Road there's room for just two

No more and no less just Jesus and you

Each burden He'll bear, each sorrow He'll share

There's never a care for Jesus is there

 

Oh, brother to you this message I bring

Though hope may be gone He'll cause you to sing

At Jesus' command sins shackles must fall

On the Jericho Road will you answer His call

 

On the Jericho Road there's room for just two

No more and no less just Jesus and you

Each burden He'll bear, each sorrow He'll share

There's never a care for Jesus is there

On the Jericho Road
