Midnight Special (At The Royal Albert Hall / London, UK / April 14, 1970) lyrics

by

Creedence Clearwater Revival


[Verse 1]
Well, you wake up in the mornin'
You hear the work bell ring
And they march you to the table
You see the same old thing
Ain't no food upon the table
And no pork up in the pan
But you better not complain, boy
You get in trouble with the man

[Chorus]
Let the midnight special
Shine a light on me
Let the midnight special
Shine a light on me (Alright)
Let the midnight special
Shine a light on me
Let the midnight special
Shine a ever-lovin' light on me

[Verse 2]
Yonder come miss Rosie
How in the world did you know?
By the way she wears her apron
And the clothes she wore, no
Umbrella on her shoulder
Piece of paper in her hand
She come to see the gov'nor
She wants to free her man

[Chorus]
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 ever-lovin' light on me

[Verse 3]
If you're ever in Houston
Well, you better do right
You better not gamble
And you better not fight, no
Or the sheriff, he'll grab you
And the boys will bring you down
The next thing you know, boy
Oh, you're prison bound
[Chorus]
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 (Alright, y'all)
Let the midnight special
Shine a ever-lovin' light on me
