Big Midnight Special

Song Author Wilma Lee Cooper Performer: Wilma Lee Cooper Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Big midnight [F]special shine your light on [C]me  
Big midnight [G7]special shine your ever loving light on [C]me  

Woke up this [F]morning heard the whistle [C]blow
The jailer said [G7]come boy it's time to [C]go  

[C]Big midnight [F]special shine your light on [C]me  
Big midnight [G7]special shine your ever loving light on [C]me  

I´ve never had the [F]blues so in my life [C]before
Till my baby [G7]left me at the station [C]door

[C]Big midnight [F]special shine your light on [C]me  
Big midnight [G7]special shine your ever loving light on [C]me  

They put him in a [F]Pullman guards around his [C]door
Sent you off to [G7]Atlanta to serve ten years [C]more

[C]Big midnight [F]special shine your light on [C]me  
Big midnight [G7]special shine your ever loving light on [C]me  

He looked all [F]around him in the Pullman [C]car  
Saw the men wearing [G7]cloth hats smoking big [C]cigars

[C]Big midnight [F]special shine your light on [C]me  
Big midnight [G7]special shine your ever loving light on [C]me  

Took him off in [F]Atlanta at the end of the [C]line
Said you start serving [G7]time boy for your awful [C]crime

[C]Big midnight [F]special shine your light on [C]me  
Big midnight [G7]special shine your ever loving light on [C]me  

That whistle makes me [F]lonesome on the midnight [C]train
But he knows I'm a [G7]waiting till it brings him home [C]again

[C]Big midnight [F]special shine your light on [C]me  
Big midnight [G7]special shine your ever loving light on [C]me  


Big midnight special shine your light on me
Big midnight special shine your ever loving light on me

Woke up this morning heard the whistle blow
The jailer said come boy it's time to go

Big midnight special shine your light on me
Big midnight special shine your ever loving light on me

I´ve never had the blues so in my life before
Till my baby left me at the station door

Big midnight special shine your light on me
Big midnight special shine your ever loving light on me

They put him in a Pullman guards around his door
Sent you off to Atlanta to serve ten years more

Big midnight special shine your light on me
Big midnight special shine your ever loving light on me

He looked all around him in the Pullman car
Saw the men wearing cloth hats smoking big cigars

Big midnight special shine your light on me
Big midnight special shine your ever loving light on me

Took him off in Atlanta at the end of the line
Said you start serving time boy for your awful crime

Big midnight special shine your light on me
Big midnight special shine your ever loving light on me

That whistle makes me lonesome on the midnight train
But he knows I'm a waiting till it brings him home again

Big midnight special shine your light on me
Big midnight special shine your ever loving light on me
