Aw, left my baby cryin', "Aw, daddy, I heard the 44 when she blow."
Aw, my baby cryin' that, "I heard the 44 whistle when she blows.
And daddy, I feel mistreated, and your sweet mama bound to go."

You know you ain't no better, mama, than the black woman I had before
Some of these mornin', mama, babe, and it won't be long
Oh, some of these morning, babe, it won't be long
You gonna look for your daddy, baby, and I'm going to be gone
