Shine a light on me

If you know anything about me at all, you'll know that one of my passions is blues music. Therefore it's great to be able to design this tee shirt as the first limited edition design in my Curiouser & Curiouser shop.

The song Midnight Special was popularised by Leadbelly (Huddy Ledbetter) in 1934, although it apparently was written around the turn of the century, 30 years earlier. The lyrics "Shine a light on me" refers to the prisoners' wish to escape from their chains either physically or spiritually - the train's light representing salvation.

Let the Midnight Special shine her light on me,
Let the Midnight Special shine her ever-loving light on me. (Traditional)
The shirt is available for a limited time at Curiouser & Curiouser's PrintMighty shop.
