Listen to the best country music – Midnight Special-Andy Ferrell with Meade Richter – www.countrymusicweekly.com


Here is a video of myself, Andy Ferrell, performing “Midnight Special” with Meade Richter accompanying me on the fiddle. I learned this version on guitar based on Leadbelly’s song but CCR also did a popular version of the tune which I use some of the lyrics from. This performance was at the Masonic Temple in Asheville, North Carolina filmed in Asheville, NC on 2/2/13 as a part of Locavoire’s farm to table organic dinner and music series.

Lyrics:
Well you wake up in the mornin´ you hear the work bell ring
And they march you to the table to see the same old thing.
Ain´t no food upon the table and no pork up in the pan.
But you better not complain boy you get in trouble with the man.

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine a everlovin´ light on me.

Yonder come miss Rosie, how in the world did you know?
By the way she wears her apron, and the clothes she wore.
Umbrella on her shoulder, piece of paper in her hand;
She come to see the gov´nor, she wants to free her man.

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me,
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me,
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me,
Let the Midnight Special shine a everlovin´ light on me.

If you´re ever in Houston, well, you better do the right;
You better not gamble, there, you better not fight, at all
Or the sheriff will grab ya and the boys will bring you down.
The next thing you know, boy, Oh! You´re penitentary bound.

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me,
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me,
Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me,
Let the Midnight Special shine a everlovin´ light on me.
