Long history of the song here:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midnight_Special_(song)

A guy did that song at a local open mic last night and related a short version of the history because one of the versions is reported to have been based on happenings at a prison not too far from the open mic, in a town where I worked for a few years, Sugar Land (TX).
