Midnight Special Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
One day, one day, Sir
I was walking along
I heard that special
Singing a lonesome song
Verse 0
Now here comes jumpin' Judy
I'll tell you how I know
You know, Judy brought jumpin'
To the whole wide world
She brought it in the morning
Just about the break of day
You know, if I ever get to jumpin'
Oh Lord, I'll up and jump away.
Verse 2
If you ever go to Houston
You know you better walk right
You know you better not stagger
You know you better not fight
Because the sheriff will just arrest you
You know he'll carry you down
And you can bet your bottom dollar
Oh Lord, you're penitentiary bound
Verse 3
[Chorus: x 2]
