​How Long

This song is by Frank Stokes and appears on the Compilation album Downtown Blues (2010).

I never, never, never can forget that day when you call me
"Baby", how long how long? I ain't had no lovin'
How Long, how long?

If you see my baby, baby, baby, tell her to hurry home, I ain't had no good
Feed in, how long, how long? And I'm on my
Way, babe, how long, how long?

Now listen at me mama, mama, why did you make me go, oh run here
Baby, how long, how long? I ain't had no
Lovin', how long, how long?

Well, I hate the train, train that carried my baby away and left me
Standin', how long, how long? I ain't had no
Lovin', how long, how long?

I never can forget that day when you call me
"Baby", how long, how long? I ain't had no
Lovin', since my babe's been gone

Now listen at me, baby, baby, everything all right with me, oh run here
Baby, how long, how long? I ain't had no
Lovin', since my babe's been gone

I never, never, baby, can see any more, oh run here
Baby, how long, how long? I ain't had no
Lovin', since my babe's been gone
