Well you wake up in the morning you hear the work bell ring
Ain't no food upon the table and no pork up in the pan.

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me

By the way she wears her apron, and the clothes she wore.
She come to see the gov´nor, she wants to free her man.
If you´re ever in Houston, well, you better do the right;
Or the sheriff will grab ya and the boys will bring you down.
