Midnight Special ( Take Me With You ) by Ben Nichols with Lucero

Midnight Special ( Take Me With You ) by Ben Nichols with Lucero


I searched for the lyrics to this specific version of Midnight Special, and couldn't find them anywhere. I decided to transcribe them myself, with my poor hearing ( deaf in one ear, and poor hearing in the other ). I did my best, and welcome any corrections ( the formatting is lost after posting this, and I am not sure why, so you will need to put in the appropriate spacing, etc... ):

Midnight Special ( Take Me With You ) by Ben Nichols with Lucero

Lord take me with you.
Don’t leave me behind.
I was a criminal.
Now I ’ve done my time.
I was adrift.
Now I’ve seen the truth.
Break loose these shackles.
Take me with you.

Let the Midnight Special, Shine a light on me.
Let the midnight special, shine a light on me.

Now I’m going… Going home and see…

Let the midnight special… Shine a light on me…

It was right there before me….
Been there all along.
There in the darkness,
And bright as the dawn.
But I couldn’t see it.
There at my feet.
That I was shackled in irons.
I yearned to be free.

Let the midnight special, shine a light on me.
Let the midnight special, shine a light on me.

Now I’m going… Going home to see.
Let the midnight special, shine a light on me.

  1. Thanks for posting the lyrics to a great song!
    The only incorrect line I noticed was:
    "Now I’m going… Going home to see"
    should be:
    "Now where I’m going... Lord only sees."
    Also- I'm not absolutely sure, but I think "I was adrift" might be "I was a drifter."

    1. Thanks.
      My hearing isn't very good. I've seen some people on YouTube and G+ also discussing the lyrics.I wish Ben Nichols and Lucero had published the lyrics on their website.
