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.
