Give Me Central 209

This song is by Lightnin' Hopkins and appears…

Original video
Hello Central, Please give me 209
Hello hello Central, will you please give me 209
Yes, you know I wanna talk to my baby
Woh Lord and she's way down the line

Seem like the buses done stop runnin'
And the trains don't allow me to ride no more
Seem like the buses done stop runnin'
Train don't allow me to ride no more
Ticket agent said my ticket played out
He'll see that I don't ride for sure

I turned around from the telephone
Went walkin' straight back home
Mmmmm-mmm turned around from the telephone
I went walkin' straight back home
I was praying in my heart
Askin' Jesus Oh Lord now
What wrong have I done

Recorded:

1960
