South city midnight lady
I'm much obliged, indeed
You sure have saved this man whose soul was in need
A rarely used expression of thanks; gratitude. When you hear it now, perhaps in an old movie or in an outdated rock song, it feels odd.
I has become an antiquated expression.
Maybe you have an Uncle who says this- maybe you have heard actors use the phrase in a play. What you don't hear is regular people using it in regular conversation.
Which is too bad. Because this phrase is not just "thanks" It is a much more polite, thoughtful expression of appreciation. It implies that the speaker is now in your debt- so perhaps it has been replaced with "I owe you one"
Perhaps. If so, that's a pity
