Lyrics

How long babe how long Has that evenin' train been gone? How long, how, how long, baby how long? Went and asked at the station: 'why's my baby leavin' town?' You were disgusted, nowhere could peace be found For how long, how, how long, baby how long? I can hear the whistle blow'n but I cannot see no train And it's deep down in my heart baby, there's lies an achin' pain For how long, how, how long, baby how long? Sometimes I feel so disgustin' and I feel so blue That I hardly know what in this world baby just to do For how long, how, how long, baby how long? And if I could holler, like I was a mountain train I'd go up on the mountain and I'd call my baby back But for how long, how, how long, baby how long? And someday you gonna be sorry that you done me wrong But it will be too late, I will be gone For so long, so long, baby so long? My mind gets a ramblin', I feel so bad Thinkin' about the bad luck that I have had For how long, how, how long, baby how long?
