Midnight Train

  • Lyrics
  • In this love song, Jennings asks his woman to grab her keys and purse in the middle of the night to come see him because he misses her.
  • Jennings from his website: "I was in the studio mixing a song with Rich Keller and he played Midnight Train for me; the lyrics just came to me. I went right into the booth and laid the track down. That's a big song."
