Verses:
Well you wake up in the morning, You hear the big bell ring.
You go marching to the table, See the same damn thing.
Well it's on a one table, Knife and fork and a pan.
And if you say anything about it, You're in trouble with the man.

If you ever go to Houston, You better walk right.
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 Sugarland bound.
 
Chorus:
Let the Midnight Special, shine her light on me.
Let the Midnight Special, shine her ever lovin' light on me.
