Ya get up in the mornin` You hear the ding-dong ring Now you look upon the table You see the same darn thing You find no food upon the table No pork up in the pan But if you say a thing about it You be in trouble with the man A-let the Midnight Special Shine a light on me Whoah let the Midnight Special Shine its ever-lovin` light on me Now if you ever in a Houston Whoa, you better walk right Ah, ya better not gamble, boy I say you better not fight Well now the sheriff, he will grab you And the boys`ll pull you down And then before you know it You`re penitentiary bound Ah, let the Midnight Special Shine a light on me Wooo let the Midnight Special Shine its ever-lovin` light on me [interlude] Here comes Miss Lucy How in the world do you know? I can tell by her apron And by the clothes she wore An umbrella on her shoulder She got a paper in her hand She gonna see the warden To try to free her man. So let the Midnight Special Shine a light on me Oh let the Midnight Special Shine its ever-lovin` light on me I said let the Midnight Special Shine a light on me Whoa let the Midnight Special Shine its ever-lovin` light on me.
