(Intro - instrumental)

Now that G. M. O.
Runs right by my do'
Taken' my baby up the country, Lord
An won't bring her back no mo'
I'm sittin' here thinkin', just sad an longin'
I wants my baby back to me

Now, I know my baby
Is goin' to jump 'n shout
When the G. M. O. Roll up
An oh Lord, 'n I come walkin' out
I'm sittin' here thinkin', just sad an longin'
I wants my baby back to me

(harmonica & instrumental)

I'm just sittin' here thinkin'
Seem like I ain't got a friend
Lord, the way my baby treat me, Lord
That's a doggone sin
I'm sittin' here won'din, a-just sad a-longin'
I wants my baby back to me

(harmonica (a little mandolin?) & instrumental)

Now, the engineerman blowed his whistle
You know and the fireman rung his bell
I hate to tell my baby, Lord, baby, fare ye well
I'm sittin' here thinkin', a just sad an longin'
I wants my baby back to me.

(harmonica & instrumental to end
