Well, it's train time now, and the track's all outa line
Well, it's train time now, and track's all outa line
And I come here soon, I wanna catch that Number Nine

I'm worried and bothered, don't know what to do
I've been worried, I've been bothered, don't know what to do
Reason I'm worried and bothered, it's all on the account of you

When I left my home, I left my baby cryin'
When I left my home, I left my baby cryin'
She keeps me worried and bothered in the mind

Now, don't your house look lonesome when your baby pack up and leave
Don't your house look lonesome when your baby pack up and leave
You may drink your moonshine but, baby, your heart ain't free

If you take my rider, I can't get mad with you
If you take my rider, I can't get mad with you
Just like you've taken mine, I'll take someone else's too

I got a girl in Texas, I've got a brown in Tennessee
I've got a brown in Texas, one in Tennessee
Lord, but that brown in Chicago have put that jinx bug on me

Recorded:

September 1927; Chicago, IL
