The Midnight Special

In the style of

Creedence Clearwater Revival

Lyrics

well you wake up
in the mornin'
you hear
the work bell ring

and they'll march you
to the table
you see
the same old thing

ain't no food
upon the table
there's no pork
up in the pan
but ya better not
complain boy
you get in trouble
with the man

let the
midnight special
shine a light on me
let the
midnight special
shine a light on me

let the
midnight special
shine a light on me
let the
midnight special
shine a everlovin'
light on me

yonder come
miss rosie
how in the world
did you know
by the way
she wears a apron
and the clothes
she wore

umbrella
on her shoulder
piece of paper
in her hand
she come to see
the governor
she want to
free her man aw

let the
midnight special
shine a light on me
let the
midnight special
shine a light on me

let the
midnight special
shine a light on me
let the
midnight special
shine a everlovin'
light on me

oh if you're ever
in houston
woh you better
do right
you better not
gamble
and you better not
fight lord

woh the sheriff
will grab ya
and the boys'll
bring you down
the next thing
you know boy
woh you're
prison-bound

oh let the
midnight special
shine a light on me
let the
midnight special
shine a light on me

a-let the
midnight special
shine a light on me
let the
midnight special
shine a everlovin'
light on me

a-let the
midnight special
shine a light on me
let the
midnight special
shine a light on me

let the
midnight special
shine a light on me
let the
midnight special

shine a everlovin'
light
on
me
