Midnight Special

This song is by The Spencer Davis Group and appears on the album Autumn '66 (1966) and on the album Eight Gigs A Week: The Steve Winwood Years (1996).

Traditional

Get your ticket at the station, get your dinner on board
Well, you know I have to leave you but I don't wanna go
Let the Midnight Special shine its light on me
The Midnight Special to Santa Fe.

If you ever go to Houston, oh you better walk right
Well, you better not stagger and you better not fight
'Cause the sheriff will arrest you and he'll carry you down
You can bet your bottom dollar, you're penitentiary bound.

Wake up early in the morning, hear the ding dong ring
Go walkin' to the table, see the same damn thing
Let the Midnight Special shine its light on me
The Midnight Special to Santa Fe.

When you wake up in the morning, hear the rooster crow
Don't wanna work but I got to go
Don't wanna leave my baby, leave her all alone
'Cause when I get back, she may be gone.

Get your ticket at the station, get your dinner on board
Well, you know I have to leave you but I don't wanna go
Let the Midnight Special shine its light on me
The Midnight Special to Santa Fe.
