It isn't easy to cover Patsy Cline, but Cyndi Lauper makes it look effortless. 

Who would have thought that a classic country tune like, "Walkin' After Midnight" was in her wheelhouse? The "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" singer is best known for her pop tunes, but Lauper has something to offer country music. We love it! 

She burst onto the pop music scene in 1983 with her debut album, She's So Unusual. Fans fell in love. Her eclectic style, her talent, and her performance ability was unlike any other female artist at the time. She has been a force of nature ever since, selling over 50 million records in her career. She has won an Emmy and a Tony, just waiting on an Oscar award to hit the trifecta. 

As a pop icon, you wouldn't expect Lauper to be interested in one of Cline's classic country songs. Think again. Lauper has actually been recording her new album titled Detour in Nashville, and has also been coving other women in country, including Dolly Parton

Cline was one of the classic country originals. She paved the path for women in a male-dominated industry. Making careers for Parton, Loretta Lynn, and all the others who came after her possible. Sadly, Cline was taken from us too soon, but her music lives as a memory of the incredible impact she made. 

Cline recorded "Walkin' After Midnight" in 1957, and now almost sixty years later we still have the opportunity to hear it covered by one of the best. Thank you Cyndi! 

Watch her live performance of "Walkin' After Midnight" below. 

LYRICS BELOW 

I go out walkin' after midnight
Out in the moonlight, just like we used to do
I'm always walkin' after midnight
Searchin' for you

I walk for miles along the highway
Well, that's just my way of sayin' I love you
I'm always walkin' after midnight
Searchin' for you

I stop to see a weepin' willow
Cryin' on his pillow
Maybe he's cryin' for me
And as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I'm lonesome as I can be

I go out walkin' after midnight
Out in the starlight, just hoping you may be
Somewhere a-walkin' after midnight
Searchin' for me

I stop to see a weepin' willow
Cryin' on his pillow
Maybe he's cryin' for me
And as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I'm lonesome as I can be

I go out walkin' after midnight
Out in the starlight, just hoping you may be
Somewhere a-walkin' after midnight
Searchin' for me
