T-Bone Walker – How Long Blues lyrics

How long, baby, how long
Has that evenin' train been gone?
How long? How long?
Baby, how long?

I can see the green grass up on the hill
But I ain't see the green back on a dollar bill
And so long, so long, baby, so long

How long, how long
Must I keep my clothes in pawn?
How long? How long?
Baby, how long?
