Steve Winwood – Midnight Special lyrics

Get your ticket at the station, get your dinner on board
Well you know I have to leave you but I don't wanna go
Let the Midnight Special shine it's light on me
The Midnight Special to Santa Fe

If you ever go to Houston, oh you better walk right
Well you better not stagger and you better not fight
'Cause the sheriff will arrest you and he'll carry you down
You can bet your bottom dollar, you're penitentiary bound

Wake up early in the morning, hear the ding dong ring
Go walkin' to the table, see the same damn (thing)
Let the Midnight Special shine it's light on me
The Midnight Special to Santa Fe

When you wake up in the morning, hear the rooster crow
Don't wanna work but I got to go
Don't wanna leave my baby, leave her all alone
'Cause when I get back, she may be gone

Get your ticket at the station, get your dinner on board
Well you know I have to leave you but I don't wanna go
Let the Midnight Special shine it's light on me
The Midnight Special to Santa Fe
