​Depot Blues

This song is by Charley Lincoln and appears on the split compilation album Charley Lincoln & Willie Baker (1927-1930) (1992) by ​Charley Lincoln and ​Willie Baker.

Standing at the station, waiting for my train to come
Standing at the station, waiting for my train to come
Singing, "Hurry up moonlight, let the morrow come"

You can drive me to the station, but you can not make me ride your train
You can drive me to your station, but you can not make me ride your train
And if you treat me mean, mama, you sure, Lord, see it again

Do not call myself leavin', but you are driving me away
Do not call myself leavin', but it's you are driving me away
Says, when my blues are over, you gon' be sorry some sweet day

She got up last night, she crawled around my bed
She got up last night, she crawled around my bed
SPOKEN: Wonder what's the matter now?
"I'm gonna love you a long time, daddy, else I will see you dead"

That gal I love won't act right at all

I woke up this morning with the blues three different ways
I woke up this morning with the blues three different ways
Had two minds to leave you, only one to stay

I left my kidgal, standing in the door
I left my kidgal, standing in the door
Hollerin', "Daddy, daddy, you ain't obliged to go"

'D'ruther drink muddy water, go sleep in a hollow tree
I'd rather drink muddy water, go sleep in a hollow tree
Than to hear my kidgal, says she don't want me

Recorded:

1928
