"Midnight Flyer" as written by and P. Craft....
Ooh, midnight flyer
Engineer, won't you let your whistle moan?
Ooh, midnight flyer
I paid my dues and I feel like trav'lin' on

A runaway team of horses ain't enough to make me stay
So throw your rope on another man
And pull him down your way
Make him into someone who can take the place of me
Make him every kind of fool you wanted me to be

Ooh, midnight flyer
Engineer, won't you let your whistle moan?
Ooh, midnight flyer
I paid my dues and I feel like trav'lin' on
Maybe I'll go to Santa Fe, maybe San Antone
Any town is where I'm bound any way to get me gone
Don't think about me, never let me cross your mind
'Cept when you hear that midnight lonesome whistle whine

Ooh, midnight flyer
Engineer, won't you let your whistle moan?
Ooh, midnight flyer
I paid my dues and I feel like trav'lin' on
I paid my dues and I feel like trav'lin' on

    General CommentAwesome song. It's not Hotel California. It's not Take It Easy. It's not Tequila Sunrise either, but this lesser known selection in the Eagles catalog really merits a listen or two.
