Parchman Farm, Mississippi State Pentitentiar y . Midnight Special left Jackson at midnight. If its light fell on a prisoner in Camp One it meant his woman was bringing a pardon from the governor.

This song is actually about a train that would pass by a prison at 12 midnight, some inmates in the prison would try and escape by jumping on it.

Didn't Leadbelly do this, and I thought he wrote it. Maybe I'm thinking of something else. Either way, CCR rocks it! They always bring the Gospel!!

Popularized by Ledbelly, a folk song almost certainly coming out of the prisons of the old south, the racially and economically oppressed. Strange how current it is now.
