The Green Door
Jim Lowe Lyrics


Midnight, one more night without sleeping
Watching till the morning comes creeping
Green door, what's that secret you're keeping?

There's an old piano
And they play it hot behind the green door
Don't know what they're doing
But they laugh a lot behind the green door
Wish they'd let me in so I could find out
What's behind the green door

Knocked once, tried to tell them I'd been there
Door slammed, hospitality's thin there
Wonder just what's going on in there

Saw an eyeball peeping through a smoky cloud behind the green door
When I said "Joe sent me"
Someone laughed out loud behind the green door
All I want to do is join the happy crowd behind the green door

Midnight, one more night without sleeping
Watching till the morning comes creeping
Green door, what's that secret you're keeping?
Green door, what's that secret you're keeping?
Green door

So It Goes

Midnight, one more night without sleeping
Watching till the morning comes creeping
Green door, what's that secret you're keeping?
There's an old piano
And they play it hot behind the green door
Don't know what they're doing
But they laugh a lot behind the green door
Wish they'd let me in so I could find out
What's behind the green door
Knocked once, tried to tell them I'd been there
Door slammed, hospitality's thin there
Wonder just what's going on in there
Saw an eyeball peeping through a smoky cloud behind the green door
When I said "Joe sent me"
Someone laughed out loud behind the green door
All I want to do is join the happy crowd behind the green door
Midnight, one more night without sleeping
Watching till the morning comes creeping
Green door, what's that secret you're keeping?
Green door, what's that secret you're keeping?
Green door

First heard this on the radio in a passenger compartment of the San Francisco Chief, November 1956, overnight train
trip from Amarillo to Chicago. Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe priced the round trip fare at $62. per head ( about half that
to ride in a chair car) Domed glass topped observation car had a full-time bar tender and cocktail waitress. We lived
our lives at a slower tempo back then and enjoyed each day more than now in my opinion.

RIP Jim. One of the greatest songs of the 50's

Nothing like the oldies from the 50's.  This one will always have a place in my memories!

I was born in '54 and was just a toddler when this came out. My mom said I loved this song and used to dance when it came on,lol. So I decided to look it up and listen to it.... don't remember the words except "green door" but I do recognize the melody,lol
