Southbound Train

This song is by Muddy Waters and appears on the album Muddy Waters Sings "Big Bill" (1960) and on the compilation album The Chess Box (1989).

I wonder why that southbound train don't run
I wonder why that southbound train don't run
Lord, you don't need no tellin', little girl, you know what you've done
You made me love you, now, your man done come
You made me love you, baby, now, your man done come
Gal, I know you happy, but poor Bill's just a lonely boy
I'm a hard workin' man, I catch the devil everywhere I go
I'm a hard workin' man, I catch the devil everywhere I go
Lord, if I can make it to the lowland, I won't have to worry no more
Standin' at the station, Lord, waitin' for a train
Standin' at the station, Lord, I was just waitin' for a train
Lord, deep down in my poor heart, baby, that a lie don't ache in pain
I've got my ticket, Mr. conductor man, can I ride
I've got my ticket, please Mr. conductor man, let me ride
Lord, if I make it to the lowland, I'll be satisfied
