Southern Railroad Blues

This song is by Kokomo Arnold and appears on the compilation album Kokomo Arnold, Vol. 2 (1935-1936) (1991).

Says my gal she caught the Southern, and the fireman he rang the bell
Says my gal she caught the Southern, and the fireman he rang the bell
And the engineer he left the station, just like a bat up out of hell

Said I waved my hand, she didn't even look around
Said I waved my hand, she didn't even look around
Said and I felt like dropping, right down on the ground

Mama here I am, down on my bended knees
Mama here I am, down on my bended knees
Says I'm crying to the good Lord, send me back my good gal if you please

Said now I got a notion, to leave this lonesome town
Said now I got a notion, to leave this lonesome town
Says my gal she caught the Southern, and I know she done put me down

Now my old bones is aching, and my hair is turning grey
Now my old bones is aching, and my hair is turning grey
Said I'm going back home mama, and I'm going back there to stay
