Words and Music by A.P. Carter, Sara Carter
and Maybelle Carter

Well I went walking out this morning
With rambling on my mind
I am going to catch the special
That train called Lonesome Pine
can't you hear the whistle blowin'
As she's coming down the line
it's a train I'll catch this morning
For to ease my worried mind
Yo-ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Yo-ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Take me back to Texas
Back to my old home


Well Ive been weeping like a willow
And I've been mourning like a dove
There's a girl way out in Texas
That I know I really love
Wont you take me back to Texas
Where the lonesome coyotes whine
Where the longhorn cattle are roaming
Around that cabin home of mine
Yo-ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Yo-ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Take me back to Texas
Back to my old home


Yo-ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Yo-ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Take me back to Texas
Back to my old home
Take me back to Texas
Back to my old home
