Long ol' train cruel engineer
They took my baby and left me here
And how long will I keep these lonesome blues

How long how long
Has that evening train been gone
How long how long baby how long

Mean ol' blues come down on me
They're all around me they're all I see
But how long will I keep these lonesome blues

Cruel engineer can't you see
I need my baby back with me
Then I'd be rid of these mean ol' lonesome blues
