Enjoy watching the Faron Young It's Four in the Morning video that was the first country music performance to air on CMT . . .

The Faron Young It’s Four in the Morning song was released in 1971 and was his first No. 1 hit single on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart since his 1961 hit song “Hello Walls”.  On March 5, 1983, country music fans got their first view of the fledgling country music video landscape, when CMT (then called CMTV) aired its first music video (Faron Young’s “It’s Four in the Morning”).  The video aired at 6:19 pm CT. Like many of country music’s earliest promotional music videos, the clip is simply Young performing the song.

Faron Young (February 25, 1932 — December 10, 1996) was an American country music singer and songwriter from the early 1950s into the mid-1980s and one of its most successful and colorful stars.  Watch the music video and see the written lyrics below.

Faron Young It’s Four in the Morning Lyrics

It’s four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me
Wishing I’d never met her, knowing if I’d forget her
How much better off she would be
The longer I hold on and the longer this goes on
The harder that it’s gonna be
But it’s four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me
I’ve never deserved her, God knows when I hurt her
That’s the last thing that I want to do
She tries but she can’t tell how she feels
But I know too well what she’s going through
If I love her so much, I don’t know why I can’t do
The right thing and just let her be
But it’s four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me
Last night, I told her this time it’s all over
Making ten times I’ve told her goodbye
Last night we broke up, this morning I woke up
And for the tenth time I’m changing my mind
I saw more love in her eyes when I left her
Than most foolish men will ever see
And it’s four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me
It’s four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me
