{c:Verso 1}
[D]Well, you wake up in the mornin' [G]
You hear the work bell ring [D]
And they march you to the table [A7]
You see the same old thing [D]
Ain't no food upon the table [G]
And no fork up in the pan [D]
But you'd better not complain, boy [A7]
You'll get in trouble with the [D]man

{c:Estribillo}
[D]Let the midnight [G]special, Shine the light on [D]me
Let the midnight [A7]special, Shine the light on [D]me
Let the midnight [G]special, Shine the light on [D]me
Let the midnight [A7]special, Shine the ever-lovin' [D]light on me
{eoc}

{c:Verso 2}
[D]Yonder come Miss [G]Rosie
How in the world did you [D]know
By the way she wears her [A7]apron
And the clothes she [D]wore
Umbrella on her [G]shoulder
Piece of paper in her [D]hand
She come to see the [A7]gov'nor
She wanna free her [D]man

{c:Estribillo}
[D]Let the midnight [G]special, Shine the light on [D]me
Let the midnight [A7]special, Shine the light on [D]me
Let the midnight [G]special, Shine the light on [D]me
Let the midnight [A7]special, Shine the ever-lovin' [D]light on me
{eoc}

{c:Verso 3}
[D]If you're ever in [G]Houston
Ooh, you'd better do [D]right
You'd better not [A7]gamble
And you'd better not [D]fight
Or the sheriff will [G]grab ya
And the boys'll bring you [D]down
The next thing you [A7]know, boy
Ooh, you're prison-[D]bound

{c:Estribillo}
[D]Let the midnight [G]special, Shine the light on [D]me
Let the midnight [A7]special, Shine the light on [D]me
Let the midnight [G]special, Shine the light on [D]me
Let the midnight [A7]special, Shine the ever-lovin' [D]light on me
