(words & music by doc pomus - mort shuman)Night rider, night riderYou may think that it’s the breezeWhispering through the lonely treesBut it’s only him a’flying round the bendAs the day comes to that endNight rider, night riderHe came riding to townAs the sun was going downSaw my baby and he smiled her heart awayNow what will I do todayCautioned my baby to stay at homeNot to leave mama’s sideShe laughed when I told her take care, take careOr you’ll share in his midnight rideNight rider, night riderSince he stole around the sideI ain’t had no peace of mindNight rider, won’t you let my baby beCome on, send her back to me
