Odetta - "Midnight Special"
From the album Odetta - "Livin' With The Blues"
[Lyrics to "Midnight Special"]

Well you wake up in the morning. Hear the ding dong ring, You go a-marching to the table, You see the same old things; All on one table, Knife, a fork and a pan, And if you say a thing about it, You're in trouble with the man.

cho: Let the midnight special Shine her light on me; Let the midnight special Shine her ever-loving light on me.

If you ever go to Houston. Than you better walk right; You better not stagger, You Know you better not fight; Sheriff Benson will arrest you, He'll carry you down, And if the jury finds you guilty, You're Penitentiary bound.

cho: Let the midnight special Shine her light on me; Let the midnight special Shine her ever-loving light on me.

[Hang on?] comes with Rosie, How in the world did you know, Well l know her by her apron, And the dress she wore. Umbrella on her shoulder, Piece of paper in her hand, She goes a-walking to the captain, Said, "Turn-a loos my man".

cho: Let the midnight special Shine her light on me; Let the midnight special Shine her ever-loving light on me.
