Eagles - Midnight Flyer Lyrics

Midnight Flyer
written: P. Craft
lead vocals: R. Meisner

Ooh, Midnight Flyer
Engineer, won't you let your whistle blow?
Ooh, Midnight Flyer
I paid my dues and I feel like travelin' on

A runaway team of horses ain't enough to make me stay
So throw your rope on another man
And pull him down your way
Make him into someone to take the place of me
Make him every kind of fool you wanted me to be

Ooh, Midnight Flyer
Engineer, won't you let your whistle blow?
Ooh, Midnight Flyer
I paid my dues and I feel like travelin' on

Maybe I'll go to Santa Fe, maybe San Antone,
Any town is where I'm bound
Any way to get me gone
Don't think about me, never let me cross your mind
'Cept when you hear that midnight lonesome whistle whine

Ooh, Midnight Flyer
Engineer, won't you let your whistle blow?
Ooh, Midnight Flyer
I paid my dues and I feel like travelin' on

Ooh, Midnight Flyer
Engineer, won't you let your whistle blow?
Ooh, ooh, Midnight Flyer
I paid my dues and I feel like travelin' on
I paid my dues and I feel like travelin' on
