Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine her ever lovin light on me

Well, you wake up in the morning
And it's the same old thing
Dehumanization
By the inhumane

The warden's dog is treated better
And I can't take it no more
Think it's time to turn some pages
No more to study war

Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine her ever lovin light on me

If you're gonna run for office
Then it's TV time
Before you bet your soul's service
Let's talk about crime

Say I'll sweep them in the prisons
Whether they're sixty or tens
Politicians throw a party
When they're put to death

Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine her ever lovin light on me

It's a billion dollar business
It's a booming field
It's a good stock invest
Such booming years

Positions in the corporations
Jobs down in old Steeltown
Seems like everybody's happy
'Cept those locked up and locked down

Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine her ever lovin light on me
