    Lyrics

    Oh, let the midnight special, shine her light on me
    Oh, let the midnight special shine her everlovin' light on me

    Now you get up in the morning, you hear the ding dong ring
    And you go marching to the table, you see the same old thing
    Well it's on the table, a knife a fork and the pan
    If you say anything about it, you're in trouble with the man

    Oh let the midnight special shine her light on me
    Oh let the midnight special shine her everlovin' light on me

    Well, if you ever go to Houston, than you'd better walk right
    And you have better not stagger and you'd better not fight
    Because the sheriff will arrest you, he's gonna take you down
    And when the jury finds you guilty, you're penitentiary bound

    Oh let the midnight special shine her light on me
    Oh let the midnight special shine her everlovin' light on me

    Well, yonder comes Miss Rosie, how in the world did I know?
    Well, I know her by her apron and the dress she wore
    An umbrella on her shoulder, a piece of paper in her hand
    She goes marching to the captain, she says "I want my man"

    Oh let the midnight special shine her light on me
    Oh let the midnight special shine her everlovin' light on me

    Everlovin' light on me
