Have you ever loved somebody, that somebody didn't love you?
Have you ever loved somebody, that somebody didn't love you?
Well now, I love my good girl, I don't care what she do

I'm worried now, baby, I won't be worried long
I'm worried now, baby, I won't be worried long
'Cause the girl I love done caught the train and gone

Have you ever taken a trip on the Mobile-Central line?
Have you ever taken a trip on the Mobile-Central line?
That's the road to ride to ease your trouble in mind

Love you like a faucet, you can turn it off or on
Love you like a faucet, you can turn it off or on
And when you think you've got it, it's done turned off and gone

If a white man had the blues, he goes down to the river and set down
If a white man had the blues, he goes down to the river and set down
Then if the blues overtakes him, he jumps overboard and drowns

If a colored man had the blues, he goes down to the river and set down
If a colored man had the blues, he goes down to the river and set down
Then if the blues overtakes him, he thinks about his woman and come on back to town
