Midnight Ferry

Album: Rebel Soul (2012)
  • I’m leavin’ town this morning
    Back on a midnight ride
    No destination weary
    Caught in the same old stride
    And oh my lord I’ll see you
    Ruined by the way
    Only to remember
    The sideways sins of yesterday

    Summertime in Denver
    Gonna see some friends of mine
    I may hide there ‘til September
    Fore the leaves begin to die
    It don’t even matter
    The poets seldom heard
    I’m gonna board the midnight ferry
    And carry on my way with yes the world

    Hallelujah, hey
    Hallelujah, hey
    Hallelujah, hey
    Hallelujah, hey

    Touching down in Memphis
    Gonna find some blue suede shoes
    And even though it may seem senseless
    It’s all that I can do
    It don’t even matter
    The preachers seldom heard
    I’m gonna board the midnight ferry
    And carry on my way with yes the world

    Hallelujah, hey
    Hallelujah, hey
    Hallelujah, hey
    Hallelujah, hey

    And it’s my last trip through Detroit
    Gonna drown away this pain
    I got no one left to live for
    And no one left to blame
    It don’t even matter
    I don’t want the last word
    I’m gonna board the midnight ferry
    And carry on my way with yes the world
    I’m gonna board the midnight ferry
    And carry on my way with yes the world

    Hallelujah, hey
    Hallelujah, hey
    Hallelujah, hey
    Hallelujah, hey

    It don’t even matter
    I don’t want the last word
    I’m gonna board the midnight ferry
    And carry on my way with yes the world
    I’m gonna board the midnight ferry
    And carry on my way with yes the world
    I’m gonna board the midnight ferry
    And carry on my way with yes the world Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
