I received a message from my brother 'cross the water
He sat laughin' as he wrote the end's in sight
So I said goodbye to all my friends
And packed my hopes inside a matchbox
'Cause I know it's time to fly
Ohhoaoh, yeah, come on, meet me in the morning
Meet me in the middle of the night
Ah-oh, yeah, the morning light is comin'
Don't it make you wanna go 'n an' feel alright
I just jumped a train that never stops
So know somehow they'll know I never
Finished payin' for my ride
Just n' someone pushed a gun into my hand
Tell me I'm the type of man
To fight the fight that I'll require
Ohhoaoh, yeah, ha, come on meet me in the morning
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, night, yeah
Ohhoaoh, well, the morning light is comin'
'll don't it make you wanna go on an' feel alright
Oh, mama, well I think it's time I'm leavin'
Nothin' here to make me stay
Whoa, mama, well it must be time I'm goin'
They're knockin' down them doors
They're tryin' to take me away
Please Mr. Brakeman, won't you ring your bell
And ring loud and clear
Unnh, please Mr. Fireman, won't you ring your bell
Tell the people they got to fly away from here
Ohhoaoh, I once saw a picture of a lady with a baby
Suddenly they have a very, very special smile
We are in the middle of a change in destination
When the train stops, all together we will smile
Ohhoaoh, come on, come on, now, meet me in the morning
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, n-n-ni-night
Hoah, hoah, yeah, everybody know the mornin' time is comin'
Don't it make you wanna feel alright
Ah, ah, yeah, Make me feel alri-ight
Fly now, baby
Get to fly, yeah
Fly now, baby
Unnh, unnh, unnh
