Allman, Gregg - Midnight Rider Lyrics




Well, I've 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 them 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 them catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

I've gone by the point of caring
Some old bed I'll soon be sharing
And I've dropped one more silver dollar

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

    Alguma brasileira (o) , curtindo essa qualidade musical. 😃

  2. Jerry Shepherd

    I AM THE MIDNIGHT RIDER EVERY TIME I HEAR THIS SONG!

  3. Kimberly Ritchie

    I agree Thomas.

  4. willmorrisusa

    " The Inbred Thumbs Down Crowd " ! How could U ? Stupid little Pukes .

  5. Lee-Ann Simmonds-Brown

    I think the brass section was a poor choice. Makes the piece corny for a bit. Otherwise I think it is a brilliant piece. Should have edited that part in my opinion.

  6. Jessie Blanton

    NATASHA CLARK ALL ABOUT PERLS US COM FACE BOOK.LIVE

  7. Sheri

    SO SO SO glad I was fortunate to see them so many times live sadly after Duane, but before Gregg joined him.

  8. utubesigninsux

    In listening to Midnight Rider again I was inspired to check out the Idlewild South album that the song is on & lo & behold, what did I find!? The album has been released in a super deluxe version - 3 cds & a bluray disc, oh hell yeah!! There is a great alternate take of Midnight Rider & the bluray disc has it in high res surround as well as stereo. Sonic heaven & thoroughly recommended folks.

  9. iam6345789

    I grew up with the Allmans and they are still and will always be my FAVORITE group! Every incarnation of this band was awesome. I cried the day Gregg died. Southern blood runs deep RIP Gregg

    First heard this song on The Devil's Rejects, right around the same time Columbia House (or was it BMG?) Sent me the double disc best of The Allman Brothers as the selection of the month. Coincidence? I think not!

  14. Michael Quinn

    I've carried a silver dollar ever since I heard this song. True story...

  15. aquagrump

    I have always loved Greg's cover of his own song. But why is there a DBT album cover in the video?

  16. Richard Baker

  32. Adolph Lopez

    Welllllllll!And just don't be surprise!!!!!As since the earliest 70s. That Gregg Allman is still traveling up to now, on the loneliest longest country roadways, over the water ponds, throughout the woods and along the railroad tracks.

  83. April Day

    Love this song with passion maybe a touch of fruit

  84. Robert NELSON JR

    Rip Duane and Gregg Allman

  85. Emiliano Ortega-Guerrero

    Emiliano Ortega-Guerrero

    SOUTHERN ROCK AWESOME

  86. The rock and roll hellion

    True southern blessings come from music like this...

  87. Jim Eddins

    This is the 1973 Gregg Allman solo release with the addition of horns (2:00 minute mark) and Gregg singing solo rather than a harmony. The original release in 1970 didn't chart but this version made it to #19. This release is also considerably longer at 4:27 versus 2:59 for the original.

  88. Michele Plouffe

    Going to have this song played at my funeral..along with Somewhere Over the Rainbow.. YEAH!!!

  89. Lindy Latham
