What Southern rock artist awoke in the middle of the night with a new song in his head. He couldn't find anything to write with so he used lipstick to write the lyrics on an ironing board. Name the artist and the song.

The song is from 1970. It doesn't appear to have made the Billboard charts although It was played on rock stations. A member of this band played in another band with Eric Clapton. The other band featuring Eric Clapton had a hit song about George Harrison's wife.

I'm only guessing here. Maybe 'Midnight Flyer' by the Allman Brothers Band.

The Artist 'Allman Brothers' is correct. The title of this thread is a hint.

Pete,

You are correct! I heard years ago in a radio interview that Greg Allman (I believe it was Greg) passed out at a party. He woke up in the middle of the night with the new song lyrics in his head. He couldn't find a pencil so he wrote the lyrics using lipstick onto an ironing board (without starch)
