The Midnight Special

Song Author Traditional Lyrics by: Traditional Performer: Creedence Clearwater Revival Submitted by: Larus
[G]Well you wake up in the [C]mornin'
you hear the work bell [C]ring
And they march you to the [D7]table
to see the same old [G]thing.
Ain´t no food upon the [C]table
and no pork up in the [G]pan.
But you better not complain [D7]boy   
you get in trouble with the [G]man.

[G]Let the Midnight [C]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [D7]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [C7]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [D7]Special shine a everlovin' light on [G]me.  

[G]Yonder come miss [C7]Rosie,
how in the world did you [G]know?
By the way she wears her a[D7]pron,
and the clothes she [G]wore.
Umbrella on her [C7]shoulder,
piece of paper in her [G]hand;
She come to see the [D7]gov'nor,
she wants to free her [G]man.

[G]Let the Midnight [C]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [D7]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [C7]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [D7]Special shine a everlovin' light on [G]me.  

[G]If you're ever in [C7]Houston,
well, you better do the [G]right;
You better not [D7]gamble,
there, you better not [G]fight,
Or the sheriff will [C7]grab ya
and the boys will bring you d[G]own.
The next thing you know, [D7]boy,   
Oh! You're prison [G]bound.

[G]Let the Midnight [C]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [D7]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [C7]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [D7]Special shine a everlovin' light on [G]me..

[G]Let the Midnight [C]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [D7]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [C7]Special shine a light on [G]me  
Let the Midnight [D7]Special shine a everlovin' light on [G]me.  

Well you wake up in the mornin'
you hear the work bell ring
And they march you to the table
to see the same old thing.
Ain´t no food upon the table
and no pork up in the pan.
But you better not complain boy
you get in trouble with the man.

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a everlovin' light on me.

Yonder come miss Rosie,
how in the world did you know?
By the way she wears her apron,
and the clothes she wore.
Umbrella on her shoulder,
piece of paper in her hand;
She come to see the gov'nor,
she wants to free her man.

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a everlovin' light on me.

If you're ever in Houston,
well, you better do the right;
You better not gamble,
there, you better not fight,
Or the sheriff will grab ya
and the boys will bring you down.
The next thing you know, boy,
Oh! You're prison bound.

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a everlovin' light on me..

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a everlovin' light on me.
