Lord I woke up this morning my man was gone
Sit on my bedside hung my head and moan
Walk down the street Lord I couldnít be satisfied
Well I got those railroad blues Iím just too mean to cry

Some said he left on a Seaboard some say the W & A
I donít what train it was that carried my man away
Fetch up my jumper iron up my overall
Well Iím gonna ride that train I mean that cannonball

It blowed for Birmingham just about half past four
At five oíclock I was knockiní on my good galís door
She said come in here papa where have you been gone
Said Iíve been in Cincinnati tryiní to get your Sally Long

Sally Long me daddy Eagle Rock me too
Nobody can rock me like my sweet papa Cow Cow do
Mamaís says Iím crazy my papa knows Iím wild
Now everybody in town calls me mamaís angel child

1.4:  Well I got those railroad blues Iím just too mean to cry

2.1:  Some said he left on the Seaboard some say the W and A

The Seaboard Air Line Railroad operated in the southeastern U.S. from 1900 until 1967.  The W&A would be the Western and Atlantic railroad, operating in the same general area.
