Well, I know my time ain't easy
And the line is drawing long
For my baby, she's still waiting

But I, I ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no
I ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

Well, my home is on the south side
But my heart is in between
And the passions I've been saving

But I ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no
Ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no)
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me)

I ain't gonna let 'em catch me
I ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no)
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me)

Like a beast without a home
That will shine both day and night
I will always be returning

But I ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no
Ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no)
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me)

I ain't gonna let 'em catch me
Ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no)
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me)

I know the time ain't easy
And the line is growing long
'Cause my baby, she's still waiting

But I ain't gonna let 'em catch me
I ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no)
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me)

I ain't gonna let 'em catch me
I ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no)
(Ain't gonna let 'em catch me)
