Baby, how long
Have that ev'nin train been gone
How long, how long, how long

Down at the station
With my head hung down
Lookin' at my baby, when she leave this town
How long, how long, how long

I'm lookin' sad, I'm feelin' bad
Thinkin' 'bout the good times
I once have had
How long, how long, how long

Wake up in the mornin'
Like a morning jack
I'm gonna climb on top of these buildings call my baby back
How long, how long, how long

I feel so lonesome, I feel so blue
I don't know what in the world I'm gonna do
How long, hey baby, how long

Baby, how long, tell me how long
Have that ev'nin train been gone
How long, how long, hey baby, how long
