Leadbelly – Midnight Special tab
This song is in G. If you can't sing that key, just capo up or change the key. sang this in different keys, like most of his songs. It is in a basic I, IV, V (G, C, D) chord so it shouldn't be very hard to change the key. C G Yonder come Miss-a Rosie, how in the world do you know? D G Well, I knows her by the apron and the dress she wore C G Umbrella on her shoulder, piece of paper in her hand D G Well she gonna tell the Governor "Please turn a-loose my man" Chorus C G Let the midnight special shine its light on me D G Let the midnight special shine its everlovin' light on me When you wake up in the mornin', when the ding-dong ring Go marchin' to the table, meet the same old thing Knife & fork are on the table, nothin' in my pan Ever say anything about it, have trouble with the man Chorus If you ever go to Houston, boy, you better walk right Well, you better not squabble and you better not fight Cuz the sheriff will arrest you and he'll take you down And the judge will sentence you, you're penitentiary bound Chorus I'm goin' away to leave you, cuz my time ain't long The Man is gonna call me and I'll be gone Be done all my weepin', whoppin', holl'in' and cryin' Be done all my studyin' about my great long time Chorus
