Aretha Franklin – Won't Be Long lyrics

Baby, here I am
By the railroad track
Waiting for my baby
He's coming back

Coming back to me
On the 503
And I won't be long
No, I won't be long

I get so lonesome
Since the man has been gone
There ain't a thing worth mentioning
Nothing been going on

And that's why I know
When the whistle blows
Yeah, that I won't be long
No, no, I won't be long

My daddy told me
When he said goodbye, yes, he did
"I'll be back, baby
Baby, bye and bye"

And that's why I waited
So doggone long, yeah
Can't you see how happy I am?
Because the man is coming home

So now, here I be
By the railroad track
Oh, waiting for my baby
He's coming back

Coming back to me
On the 503
Yeah, and I won't be long
No, no, I won't be long

I ain't had no loving
Since you know when
He's a long gone rooster
And I'm a lonesome hen

And that's why I'm sure
When the whistle blows
Yeah, that I won't be long
No, no, I won't be long

I'm so excited
My knees are shaking, yeah
Mr. Engineer
Don't you keep me waiting

Hear me telling you
Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry
Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry

Baby, here I am
Oh, by the railroad track
Waiting for my baby
He's coming back

Coming back to me
Lord, on the 503
Yeah and I won't be long
No, I won't be long

Yeah, I know
When the whistle blows
Hey, that I won't be long
No, no, I won't be long
