Early in the Morning – Charlie Feathers demo, w/lyrics

___________________________

Early in the Morning (Quinton Claunch, Charles Feathers) — Charlie Feathers demo, recorded c.1958-1961

.

(below) lyric transcribed by me (doc), 7 November 2011:

Well, early in the morning it’s so hard to get up
Before I get my coffee it’s so doggone rough
Though I gotta hit the floor, I’d like to sleep a little more
Early in the morning it’s so hard to get up

So sad
Feeling bad

Well, I wish I was a banker so I could sleep late
And they can bring me my breakfast on a silver plate
I’m just a ordinary man doing the best I can
Early in the morning it’s so hard to get up

So sad
Feeling bad

Well, the Lord delivered Daniel from a lion’s den
And little Davy Crockett got the bear after him
But their troubles don’t compare with the ones I have to bear
Early in the morning it’s so hard to get up

So sad
Feeling bad

Well, early in the morning it’s so hard to get up
Early in the morning it’s so hard to get up

A couple of the lines are slightly changed in Don Bach’s 1961 version, see below, and he doesn’t include the “So sad…” section. The recordings of the song by Charlie Feathers and Don Bach are the only two that I’m aware of.
