Let the midnight special
Shine your light on me
Let the midnight special
Shine your ever livin' lights on me

Then you git up in the mo'nin
When the ding-dong ring (dong-ding)
You'll make it to the table
See the same old thing

Ain't nothin' on the table
But the pots and the pans, Lordy
Say anything about it
Have trouble with the man

Let the midnight special
Shine your light on me
Let the midnight special
Shine ya ever lovin' lights on me

Yonder come a little Nora
How do you know?
I know by the apron
In the dress she wear

Umbrella over shoulder
Piece a paper in her hand
Lookin' for some sargeant
To release her man

You git up in the mo'nin
When the ding-dong ring
You make it to the table
See the same old thing
If ya say anything about it
Have trouble with the man

Let the midnight special
Shine your light on me
Let the midnight special
Shine ya ever lovin' lights on me

(guitar)

Yonder come a little Nora
How do you know?
I know by the apron
In the dress she wear

Umbrella over her shoulder
Piece a paper in her hand
Lookin' for some sargeant
To release her man

Let the midnight special
Shine your light on me
Let the midnight special
Shine ya ever lovin' lights on me

Let the midnight special
Shine ya ever lovin' lights on me.
