By Gregg Allman

I've got to run to keep from hiding
And I'm bound to keep on riding;
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let `em catch me, no.
Not gonna let `em catch the midnight rider.
I don't own the clothes I'm wearing
And the road goes on forever
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let `em catch me, no
Not gonna let `em catch the midnight rider.
I've gone by the point of caring.
Some old bed I'll soon be sharing
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let `em catch me, no.
Not gonna let `em catch the midnight rider.
No, I'm not gonna let `em catch me, no.
Not gonna let `em catch the midnight rider;
No, I'm not gonna let `em catch me no.
No, I'm not gonna let `em catch the midnight rider.
