How long, baby how long,
Has that evening train been gone?
How how long,
Baby how long?
Went to the station, didn't see no train.
Down in my heart, I have an aching pain.
I feel disgusted, I feel so bad
Thinking 'bout the good time that I once have had.
I could see the green grass growing on the hill;
I ain't seen no greenback on a dollar bill.
You're gonna be sorry, you'll feel so blue.
When you want me, baby, I declare I won't want you.
Don't have no money for to ride the train.
I would ride the rods, baby, to be with you again.
How long, baby how long
Must I keep my, my watch in pawn?
