​Midnight Special

This song is by Eric Bibb and appears on the Live album Lead Belly's Gold (2015).

Yonder come Miss Rosie
How in the world you know?
Well I knows about her apron
And the dress she wore

Umbrella on her shoulder
Piece of paper in her hand
Well I'm calling to the Gov'ner
Turn a-lose my man

Let the midnight special
Shine a light on me
Let the midnight special
Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

When he gets up in the mornin'
You hear the big bell ring
You go marching to the table
It's the same damn thing

Not a fork on the table
And nothin' in my pan
If you say a thing about it
You're in trouble with the man

Let the midnight special
Shine a light on me
Let the midnight special
Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

If you ever go to Houston
Boy you better walk right
And you better not stagger
And you better not fight

Or the sheriff gonna 'rrest you
Lord, and carry you down
And you can bet your bottom dollar
You're penitentiary bound

Let the midnight special
Shine a light - Shine a light on me
Let the midnight special
Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

Now jumpin' little Judie
What a fine girl
Well Judie brought jumpin'
To the whole wide world

When the midnight special
Shine a light on me
When the midnight special
Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

When the midnight special
Shine a light on me
When the midnight special
Shine it's ever lovin' light on me
