I quit my job, ain't got no money
Seems I have to leave this town
Packed my bag, went to the station
Board the train that's southern bound

Tell Mama
And all the folks back home
Sometimes a man just feels
He's got to make it alone

Tell Mama
Why I'll be leavin' so soon
Because this life I live
Has got me singin' the blues

Nothin' to do, that's why I have to go
Seems no use in hangin' 'round
I can't stop now, the ticket's [Incomprehensible] in hand
Board the train that's southern bound

Tell Mama
And all the folks back home
Sometimes a man just feels
He's got to make it alone

Tell Mama
Why I'll be leavin' so soon
Because this life I live
Has got me singin' the blues

Tell Mama
And all the folks back home
Sometimes a man just feels
He's got to make it alone

Yeah, tell Mama
Why I'll be leavin' so soon
Because this life I live
Has got me singin' the blues
