Lyrics

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me

Let the Midnight Special shine a ever lovin' light on me

Well you wake up in the morning, hear the ding dong ring

You go marching to the table, see the same old thing

Well it's on one table, knife and fork and can

and 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 a ever lovin' light on me

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me

Yeah yeah hey! Let the Midnight Special shine a ever lovin' light on me

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me

Yeah yeah!

Let the Midnight Special shine a ever lovin' light on me!

Yeah hey hey hey!
