Midnight Rider

Lyrics: Gregg Allman, Robert Payne
Music: Gregg Allman, Robert Payne

An Allman Brothers song played by Phil Lesh and Friends in 2007

I got to run to keep from hiding
And I'm bound to keep on riding
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

And I don't own the clothes I'm wearing
And the road goes on forever
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

I've gone past the point of caring
Some old bed I'll soon be sharing
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
