"Midnight'" is a 1952 single recorded by Red Foley, written by Boudleaux Bryant and Chet Atkins. "Midnight" would be Red Foley's ninth number one on the Country & Western charts, spending one week at number one and a total of eleven weeks on the chart.[1]

Hank Williams, on his final road trip the day before he died, sang an a cappella "Midnight" in the passenger seat. According to his driver, Charles Carr, it was the last song he remembers Hank singing.[2]
