Did you hear about the midnight rambler?
E          D     A   A
Everybody got to go

He don’t give a hoot of a warning, 
     D             A         E         E
A-wrapped up in a black cat coat
     D              A           E         E
He don’t go in the light in the morning
     D                   A         E     E
He’s split the time the cock’rel crows

Did you see him jump the garden wall?
     D              A         E     E
A-sighing down the wind so sadly
     D           A         E    E
A-listen and you hear him moan
          D                 A         E      E

Everybody got to go

It’s not, one those...
          E                 D        A   NC
Well I’m talking about the midnight... 
     E                   D        A   A
The one who closed the bedroom door?
               D             A          E      E
I’m called the hit and run, rape her in anger
      D             A       E   E
The knife sharpened tippy toed
               D             A          E         E
Or just the shoot him dead brain-belled jangler

So if you ever meet the midnight rambler

A-crawling down your marble hall
          D              A          E         E
Well he prowling like a proud black panther
            D  A          E    E
You can say I, I told you so
               D               A          E     E
Well won’t you listen for the midnight rambler
 D           A      E   E
Play it easy as you go
            D               A          E         E
I’m gonna smash down your plate glass windows
        D                A          E         E
Put a fist through your steel plate door

Did you hear about the midnight rambler? 
                 E                 D        A     A

         D              A      E      E
Well go easy with your cold fandango
                D           A               E            E
I’ll stick my knife right down your throat, baby and it hurts
