​Leaving Train Blues

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

I asked the agent, "What train must I ride?"
I asked the agent, "What train must I ride?"
"It don't make no difference, so you'll be satisfied"

Now, the train I ride don't pull her no coach at all
The train I ride don't pull no coach at all
It's the Deluxe Special, connects with the Cannonball

I'm leavin' town on the mornin' train
I am leavin' town on that mornin' train
And that place, my stop, they don't know no women's name

Now if you think I'm lovin' you, sugar, change your mind
If you think I'm lovin' you, sugar, change your mind
'Cause when you think I'm a-lovin' you, I'm quittin' you all the time

Now, you see that train, makin' up in that yard
Now, you see that train, makin' up in the yard
It's gwine to take me where it take two dollars to send a postal card
