Take care of my wife and my baby
A-tell 'em I will be back home, someday
Take care of my wife and my baby
A-tell 'em I will be back home, someday
Now, it was stormin', it was raining
Man, the day that she walked away
I walk this old highway
Forty long days an night
I walk this old highway, now
You know, forty long days an night, yeah
Now, an I was just thinkin' about my baby
Man, she just a-won't treat me right, yeah
Now, the sun is growin' hot, mm
Baby, an my shoes is gettin' awful thin
You know, the sun is growin hot, mm
Oh baby, an my shoes is getting awful thin
Now, an I was just wonderin' if my baby
Oh Lord, would take me back again, now?
'Alright Lacey, play'
(harmonica and instrumental)
Lord, the train is blowin'
An it is comin' around the bend, yeah
You know the train is blowin'
An it is comin' around the bend, yeah
You know, an I'm just sittin' here thinkin'
A-will my baby take me back, again?
You know I left my baby
Now, when she was only fo' days old
You know, I left my little baby
A-now, when she was only fo' days old, now
I just hope she don't learn
To call no other man, 'Daddy'
You know, that's what worries me so.
