Depot Blues - Charley Lincoln
Standing at the station, waiting for my train to come (2)
Singing, "Hurry up moonlight, let the morrow come."
You can drive me to the station, but you can not make me ride your train
You can drive me to your station, but you can not make me ride your train
And if you treat me mean, mama, you sure, Lord, see it again
Do not call myself leavin', but you are driving me away
Do not call myself leavin', but it's you are driving me away
Says, when my blues are over, you gon' be sorry some sweet day
She got up last night, she crawled around my bed (2)
SPOKEN: Wonder what's the matter now?
"I'm gonna love you a long time, daddy, else I will see you dead."
That gal I love won't act right at all
I woke up this morning with the blues three different ways (2)
Had two minds to leave you, only one to stay
I left my kidgal, standing in the door (2)
Hollerin', "Daddy, daddy, you ain't obliged to go."
'D'ruther drink muddy water, go sleep in a hollow tree
I'd rather drink muddy water, go sleep in a hollow tree
Than to hear my kidgal, says she don't want me
