G                        C
Well, you wake up in the morning, boy.
                       G
You hear the ding dong ring.
                       D
Then you look upon the table, boy.
                      G
You see the same darn thing.

You find no food upon the table, boy.
                          G
There's no fork up in the pan.
                      D
But you better not complain, boy.
                               G
You'll get in trouble with the man.

Let the midnight special, shine it's light on me.

Well, yonder comes Miss Rosie, boy.
                        G
How in the world do you know?
                         D
By the way she wears her apron, boy.
                    G
And the clothes she wore.

#4.
G                   C
The umbrella on her shoulder,
                      G
Piece of paper in her hand.
                          D
Well, she come to see the Governor,
                      G
She wants to free her man.

Let the midnight special, shine it's light on me.

G7                     C
Now, if you're ever in Houston, boy.
                    G
Well, you better do right.
                    D
Hey, you better not gamble, boy.
                   G
And you better not fight.

#6.
G                       C
Boy, the sheriff, he'll grab you.
                           G
And the boys will pull you down.
                       D
And the next thing you know, boy.
              G
You're prison bound.

CHORUS:
G7               C                            G
Let the midnight special, shine it's light on me.
                 D                                       G
