Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
   This is me being a pedantic git, it bothers me that the version I know best
   isn't on here.

   This is the version Leadbelly did with The Golden Gate Quartet and includes
   the correct lyrics to the entire song.

   Hope you like it,  if you do, !! RATE IT !!

                        MIDNIGHT SPECIAL

   D                          G                               D
     Younder comes a Miss-a Rosie,   How in the world do you know
   D                           A                          D
     Well I knows her by her apron,    And the dress she wore
   D                    G                                D
     Umbrella on her shoulder,    Piece of paper in her hand
   D                           A                                    D
     Well I'm gonna ask the Governor,     Please turn a-loose-a my man
   D                     G                           D
     Let the Midnight Special,   Shine your light on me
   D                     A                                        D
     Let the Midnight Special,    Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

   D                            G                           D
     When you gets up in the morning,  When that big bell ring
   D                               A                           D
     You're gonna march into the table,  See the same damned thing
   D                             G                              D
     Knife and fork are on the table,    There's nothin' in my pan
   D                           A                                  D
     N'you ever say an'thin' about it,   Having trouble with the man
   D                     G                           D
     Let the Midnight Special,   Shine your light on me
   D                     A                                        D
     Let the Midnight Special,    Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

   D                         G                       D
     Well I went into the nations,    And the terr-i-to
   D                         A                         D
     Well I thought about a girl I love,    Lives in Mexico
   D                     G                           D
     Let the Midnight Special,   Shine your light on me
   D                     A                                        D
     Let the Midnight Special,    Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

   D                       G                              D
      If you ever go to Houston,   Boys you better walk right
   D                       A                              D
     And you better not quarrel,     And you better not fight
   D                        G                                     D
     Benson Crocker will arrest you,   Eddie Boone will take you down
   D                             A                       D
     You gonna bet your bottom dollar,    Penitentiary bound
   D                     G                           D
     Let the Midnight Special,   Shine your light on me
   D                    A                                         D
     Let the Midnight Special,    Shine it's ever lovin' light on me

   D                      G                             D
     Well jumpin' little Judy,   She was a mighty fine whore
   D                     A                              D
     Well Judy brought jumpin',    To this whole round world
   D                              G                              D
     Well she brought it in the mornin',    Just a while before day
   D                     A                        D
     She brought me the news,   That my wife was dead
   D                      G                           D
     N'that started me greivin',  Then hollerin' and cryin'
   D                          A                         D
     Then I had to give the worry,   'Bout a very long time
   D                     G                           D
     Let the Midnight Special,   Shine your light on me
   D                     A                                        D
     Let the Midnight Special,    Shine it's ever lovin' light on me
