Midnight Special



Leadbelly <A>

Keyboard Version <F>

Or <G> / <E>


Stompin' Dave version

You wake up in the morning hear the the big bell ring
Go marching to the table see the same dam thing

Not a thing upon the table just a knife a fork a pan
Say a thing about it your in trouble with the man

Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine it's ever loving light on me

If you ever go to Houston you better walk right
You better not squabble you better not fight

The Sherriff will arrest you and he'll follow you on down
Next thing you know about it your sugar land bound

Yonder comes the doctor tell me how do you know

Cause he gave me a tablet just the day before

But there never was a doctor travelling in this land

Who could cure the fever of a convict man


Well Jumping little Judy was a mighty fine girl

Well Judy bought jumping to this whole round world

Well she bought it in the morning just a while before day

She bought me the news that my wife was dead


Yonder comes my lady tell me how do you know
Know by the apron and the dress she wore
Umbrella on her shoulder piece of paper in her hand
She says to the captain I want my lifetime man
