Skip James – How Long Blues lyrics

Note: hyphen=unsung word


How long
Baby, how long
That ev'nin' train been gone?
So long, honey, so long

I got to the station
When she left town
I'm blue an disgusted
I didn't know where to be bound
Howlin', how long
Baby, how long
Honey, how -

How long, baby
That ev'nin' train been gone?
But so long
Baby, so long
Honey, so long

How long
Baby, how -
Am I to be
Treated wrong?
But in so long
Honey, so long
Honey, so -

(piano)

How long
Baby, how -
Why must I keep my
Watch in pawn?
But so long
Baby, so long
Honey, so -

How long
Baby, how -
How long, to sing this -
But honey
Honey, so long
And baby, so -

(piano to end)

~
