​Santa Fe Blues

This song is by Melvin Jackson.

Ain't gonna tell nobody what the Santa Fe have done for me
Ain't gonna tell nobody what the Santa Fe have done for me
If you want to know, baby, then you sure have to come and see

Eighty-one's in the yard, eighty-two's out on the road
Eighty-one's in the yard, eighty-two's out on the road
Eighty-one makes my livin', eighty-two pay for my board

Ain't gonna tell nobody what the Santa Fe have done to me
Ain't gonna tell nobody what that Santa Fe have done for me
Well, it taken my woman, come and got my used-to-be

Santa Fe left me and left me standin' cryin'
When that Santa Fe left, she left me standin' cryin'
Had my woman on board and it left poor me behind
