    “The Midnight Special” sounds like a blues. The chord progression follows the same chord progression of “On Top Of Old Smokey”. It’s not a 12 bar blues but it sounds like a blues

    Thanks Saxomonica. I guess The Kingston Trio could hang the Midnight Special with “The Tijuana Jail”

    Oh wow, William, that is so coo-ool !

    Thanx 4 putting thangs in focus, and, i see what you mean. Smokin’!

    Says on vid info that ~ “Tijuana Jail” was banned from radio stations in Mexico because the government felt it perpetuated demeaning stereotypes.
