About Midnight Rider

"Midnight Rider" is a song by the American rock band the Allman Brothers Band. It was the second single from their second studio album, Idlewild South (1970), released on Capricorn Records. The song was primarily written by vocalist Gregg Allman, who first began composing it at a rented cabin outside Macon, Georgia. He enlisted the help of roadie Robert Kim Payne to complete the song's lyrics. He and Payne broke into Capricorn Sound Studios to complete a demo of the song. While the original Allman Brothers release of the song did not chart, "Midnight Rider" was much more successful in cover versions. Gregg Allman's solo version of the song, released in 1973, was its biggest chart success; it was a top 20 hit in the U. S. and Canada. A cover by Jamaican singer, Paul Davidson, represented its biggest peak in the United Kingdom, where it hit number ten. Country artist Willie Nelson also recorded a version of the song that peaked at number six on U. S. country charts.

I gotta run to keep from hidin'
I'm bound to keep on ridin'
An' I got one more silver dollar
An' I ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no
I ain't gonna let em catch the midnight rider 
Well, these ain't my clothes I'm wearin'
An' this ol' road goes on forever
An' I got one more silver dollar
An' I ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no
I ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider 
Well, I've gone by the point of carin'
Some ol' bed, I'll soon be sharin'
An' I got one more silver dollar
An' I ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no
I ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider 
An' I ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no
I ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
I ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no
I ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
I ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no
I ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider 
I ain't gonna let 'em catch me, no
I ain't gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. more »
