Midnight Special

yonder comes miss Rosy
how in the world do you know
well I know her by her apron
and the dress she wears
umbrella on her shoulder
piece of paper in her hand
‘I gonna ask the governor
to turn a-loose my man’

let the midnight special
shine her light on me
let the midnight special
shine her everlovin’ light on me

when you wake up in the mornin’
when that big bell rings
gonna march around the table
meet the same ol’ things
knife and fork on the table
with nothing in my pan
if you say anything about it
you’re in trouble with the man

if you ever get to Houston
boy, you’d better walk right
and you’d better not squabble
and you’d better not fight
Betz & Brookner will arrest you
Patton & Boone will take you down
you can bet your bottom dollar
you’re Sugerland bound

well jumpin’ little Judy
she was a mighty fine gal
and Judy brought a-jumpin’
to the whole wide world
she brought me in the mornin’
just a while before day
she brought me the news
that my wife was dead
that started me to grievin’,
whoopin’, hollerin’ and a-cryin’
and I began to worry
about my great long time

let the midnight special
shine her light on me
let the midnight special
shine her everlovin’ light on me
