My baby got unruly
An she called the chief police
My baby got unruly
Called the police up to my do'
An I believe to my soul
Gonna have to ride that M&O

I'm a railroad man
An I love that M&O
I'm a railroad man
An I love that M&O
An when I leave this time
I ain't comin' back, no mo'

Now, don't the moon look pretty
Shinin' down through the trees?
Now, don't the moon look pretty
Shinin' down through the trees?
I can see my baby
But I swear that she can't see me

I'm in a world of trouble
An I b'lieve I've got to go
I'm in a world of trouble
An I b'lieve I've got to go
I'm gonna leave here, people
Gonna catch that M&O

(short piano to end)
