Midnight Train to Memphis

Midnight Train to Memphis

SteelDrivers

Well judge looked down, gave me 40 days
Instead of the fine that I could not pay
Said walk right you'll soon be home
Cross the line and you're on your own
40 day's of shotguns n barb wire fences
40 nights to sit and listen
To the midnight train to Memphis
Well now the whistle blows when the sun comes up
Hit the floor keep you big mouth shut
Eat your breakfast on the ground
Work like hell till the sun goes down
40 days of shotguns n barb wire fences
40 nights to sit and listen
To the midnight train to Memphis
Well now 10 for the jury 10 for the judge
20 more to forget my grudge
When I get to 39
That's the longest day in a prisoner's mind
40 days of shotguns n barb wire fences
40 nights to sit and listen
To the midnight train to Memphis
Midnight train to Memphis
On a midnight train to Memphis
