How Long, How Long Blues
How long, how long have the evening train been gone?
How long, how long, I don't know, how long?
And I still at the station watch my baby leaving town
Blue and disgusted know where could she be found
How long, how long, baby how long

I can hear the whistle blowing, but I can't see no train
Deep down in my heart I got an aching pain
How long, how long, baby how long

Sometimes I feel so disgusted, I feel so blue
That I hardly know what in this world to do
How long, how long, baby how long

If I could holler like a mountain jack
I'd go on the mountain and call my good gal back
How long, how long, baby how long

Someday you're gonna be sorry that you've done me wrong
But it will be too late and I'll just be gone
So long, so long, baby so long

My mind's made up to ramble, I feel so bad
Thinking of the pleasures that we once have had
So long, so long, baby so long
