Whoa-oh, smokestack lightning
Shining just like gold
Why can't you hear me crying
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh

Whoa-oh, stop your train
Let a hobo ride
Why can't you hear me crying
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh

Whoa-oh, fare you well
I never see you no more
Why can't you hear me crying
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh

Whoa-oh, who bit your baby sister?
I been gone
A little bitty boy
Turn me on, ooh-ooh
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh

Whoa-oh, stop your train
Let a poor boy ride
Why can't you hear me calling

Stop your train
Let a poor boy ride

Whoa-oh, who bit your baby sister?
I been gone
A little bitty boy
Turn me on, ooh-ooh
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh

Whoa-oh, fare you well
I never see you no more
Why don't you hear me crying
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh

Don't you hear me crying one time
It hurts, yes it do
Ah-ooh

Whoa-oh, fare you well
I never see you no more
Why don't you hear me crying
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh
Ah-ooh
