Pipe Liner Blues


Oven Pan Abstracts : 47qbt – 50qbt


Midnight, I’ve spent another lonely day, thinkin’ of you
Midnight, tomorrow is on it’s way, empty and blue
I’m so lonely, so lonely at midnight for you.

Midnight, oh what a lonely time to weep, I ought to know
Midnight, I should have been fast asleep hours ago
Still I’m crying, I’m crying ’cause I miss you so

Midnight, I lie in bed awake and stare at nothing at all
Wonderin’, wonderin’ why you don’t care, wishing you’d call
Tears keep flowing like drops from a waterfall



MIdnight was composed by Boudleaux Bryant & Chet Atkins. It is said that this was the last song Hank Williams sang before he died.

Howard M. Biggs (October 13, 1916 – November 24, 1999) was an American pianist, songwriter, and arranger. He is noted for his involvement with doo-wop, and various styles, including jazz. He was influential in the first days of rock and roll as an arranger.  There seems to be no information about the singer, Joe Costa. Perhaps, readers may provide some background.

The Abstract Oven Pan Blues

I’ve got those Oven Pan Blues,

Oh it’s driving me to distraction –

How Love’s an abstraction

baked in twos.

Oh how I’ve got

those Oven Pan Blues.

Oh here comes

those Oven Pan Blues,


Now, somebody just gotta choose.

Well, that’s how that cookie crumbles,

breaking hearts  in two –

You watch that Gingerbread man tumble

with the Oven Pan Blues.

Got to get out of this hot kitchen,

Before I burn my shoes

Dancing to these Oven Pan Blues.

Oh how I’ve got

those abstract Oven Pan Blues.
