This song is by Ed Bell and appears on the compilation album Ed Bell "Mamlish Blues" (1927-1930) (1992).

... The back door, cryin'
I left my baby, standin' in the back door cryin'
She keeps me worried, bothered all the time

A worried woman, now, marry a railroad man
Ooh, worried woman, marry a railroad man
'Cause he came each Sunday with a dollar in his hand

I asked my Captain, 'bout the time of day
Asked my Captain, 'bout the time of day
And he got mad, then he throwed his watch away

Captain work by Waterbury, knock off by the sun
He work by Waterbury, knock off by the sun
You can hear the 19, says, it's been by and gone

Spoken: All right, let's get away from here, little big boy
