Joe Cocker

John Robert "Joe" Cocker OBE (born 20 May 1944) is an English rock and blues singer, who came to popularity in the 1960s, and is known for his gritty voice, his idiosyncratic arm movements while performing, and his cover versions of popular songs, particularly those of the Beatles. more »

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 

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

[Repeat x3] 
But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no 
Not gonna let them catch the Midnight Rider
