Midnight Ferry

Album: Rebel Soul (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Kid Rock told MTV News he already has plans for this tune to be his funeral song. "'Midnight Ferry,' it's really dark, but it's not a dark song; it's reflective, but it's happy, it's celebratory. I know what I want played at my funeral: That's the song!" he said.

    "I was telling that to somebody recently and they were like 'Dude, that's dark.' And I'm like, 'No, everything's cool, trust me. I'm in the bonus round of life now.' God forbid I gotta check out any time soon, but, I'm like, 'It's cool, it's been a good ride.'"
