Joe Cocker – Midnight Rider lyrics

Well, I know my time ain't easy
And the line is growing long
For my baby, she's still waiting

But I, I ain't gonna
Let em catch me, no
I ain't gonna let em
Catch the midnight rider

Well, my home is on the south side
But my heart is in between
And the passions I've been saving

But I ain't gonna
Let em catch me, no
Ain't gonna let em
Catch the midnight rider

(Ain't gonna let em catch me)
(Ain't gonna let em catch me)

I ain't gonna let em catch me
I ain't gonna let em catch
The midnight rider

(Ain't gonna let em catch me)
(Ain't gonna let em catch me)

Like a beast without a home
That will shine both day and night
I will always be returning

But I ain't gonna
Let em catch me, no
Ain't gonna let em
Catch the midnight rider

(Ain't gonna let em catch me)
(Ain't gonna let em catch me)

I ain't gonna let em catch me
Ain't gonna let em catch
The midnight rider

(Ain't gonna let em catch me)
(Ain't gonna let em catch me)

I know the time ain't easy
And the line is growing long
Cause my baby, she's still waiting

But I ain't gonna
Let em catch me, no
I ain't gonna let em
Catch the midnight rider

(Ain't gonna let em catch me)
(Ain't gonna let em catch me)

I ain't gonna let em catch me
I ain't gonna let em catch
The midnight rider

(Ain't gonna let em catch me)
(Ain't gonna let em catch me)
