Big Midnight Special Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Big midnight special shine your light on me
Big midnight special shine your ever lovin' light on me
Verse 2
Woke up this morning I heard the whistle blow
The jailor says come on boy cause it's time to go
Big midnight special
Verse 3
Never had the blues so in my life before
Until I left my good gal at that station door
Big midnight special
Verse 4
Put me in a pull man guards around his door
Said you off to Atlanta you gonna serve ten years more
Big midnight special
Verse 5
Looked all around me in that pull man car
The men was wearing Stetson hats smoking big cigars
Big midnight special
Verse 6
Took me off in Atlanta at the end of the line
Said you gonna start serving time boy for your awful crime
Big midnight special
Verse 7
The whistle makes me lonesome of the midnight train
And it's gonna be ten long years till I go home again
Big midnight special
