Ride the silver eagle out of JFK 
Up the eastern seaboard destination Portland Maine 
When we saw the people at the concert hall
The seats were for five thousand it made us feel so small 

 Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
On our journey 'cross the States  Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
 Right on through the USA 

 Stopped off at Niagara taking pictures of the falls  Tried to cross the border were accosted by the law
 People down in Texas from the red hot burning sun
They couldn't stand the heatwave but we just kept rollin' on

 Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
On our journey 'cross the States  Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
 Right on through the USA 

 Driving into Nashville on the highway interstate
Had a holdup on the freeway we end up being late
Flew into Chicago but we never heard the blues  Played some rock 'n' roll there then down to Batton Rouge

 Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
On our journey 'cross the States  Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
 Right on through the USA 

 Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
On our journey 'cross the States  Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
 Right on through the USA 

 Fought the vigilante at the end of our first tour
We made a lot of friends there we'll see them all next year
As we fought the big deadline, oh, we won't forget the days
We rode the silver eagle right across the USA 

 Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
On our journey 'cross the States  Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
 Right on through the USA 

 Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
On our journey 'cross the States  Midnight rider keeps on rollin'
 Right on through the USA 

 Midnight rider
