Tell me what time do the trains come through your town.
I wanna know what time do the trains come through your town.
I wanna laugh and talk with a long-haired teasin' brown.

One goes south at eight and it's one goes north at nine.
One goes south at eight and one goes north at nine.
I got a hour to talk with that long-haired brown of mine.

Go and get my black horse and saddle up my grey mare.
Go get my black horse and saddle up my grey mare.
I'm goin' off to my good gal, she's in the world somewhere.

Sugar, the blues ain't on me, but things ain't goin' on right.
