Hank Williams, Jr. Big Midnight Special Lyrics

Last updated:

Big midnight special shine your light on me
Big midnight special shine your everlovin' light on me

Woke up this morning I heard the whistle blow
The jailor says come on boy cause it's time to go
Big midnight special...

Never had the blues so in my life before
Until I left my good gal at that station door
Big midnight special...

Put me in a pullman guards around his door
Said you off to Atlanta you gonna serve ten years more
Big midnight special...
[ steel - guitar ]
Looked all around me in that pullman car
The men was wearing Stetson hats smoking big cigars
Big midnight special...

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...

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...
