Van Morrison - "Midnight Special (in abum The Skiffle Sessions-Live In Bel" lyrics

Well you wake up in the mornin'

When the ding-dong ring (ding 'em man, ding 'em)

Go over to the table

See the same old (damn) thing

Nothing put upon the table

And nothin' in my pan

Say anything about it

I get in trouble with the man

Let the midnight special

Shine a light on me

Let the midnight special

Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

If you ever go to Houston

Oh well you better walk right

You better not stagger

And you better not fight

Or the sheriff gonna 'rrest you

Lord, and carry you down

And if the jury find you guilty

You're penitentiary bound

But let the midnight special

Shine a light on me

Let the midnight special

Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

Let the midnight special (hoo)

Shine a light on me
Let the midnight special

Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

Yonder comes Miss Rosie (yeah) (oh yeah)

How in the world do you know' (I be low)

Well I know her by her apron (oh yeah)

And the dress she wore

Umbrella on her shoulder

Piece of paper in her hand (yeah)

She's a-gonna tell the Captain

You tell him listen man

Let the midnight special

Shine a light on me

Let the midnight special

Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

(Me, me, me)

Let the midnight special

Shine a light on me

Well let the midnight special

Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

Well I done my time boy (well, yeah)

Who they caught with a crime

Well the man ain't call me

He done be ridin' down the line

But let the midnight special

Shine a light on me (yeah)

Let the midnight special

Shine it's ever lovin' light on me
