How Long Blues lyrics

(by leroy carr)

How long, baby how long,
Has that evening train been gone?
How long, how how long, baby how long?

Went to the station, didnt see no train.
Down in my heart, I have an aching pain.
How long, how how long, baby how long?

I feel disgusted, I feel so bad
Thinking bout the good time that I once had had.
How long, how how long, baby how long?

I could see the green grass growing on the hill;
I aint seen no greenback on a dollar bill.
How long, how how long, baby how long?

Youre gonna be sorry you feel so blue.
When you want me, baby, I declare I want, want you.
How long, how how long, baby how long?

Dont have no money for to ride the train.
I would ride the rugs, baby, to be with you again.
How long, how how long, baby how long?

How long, baby how long
Must I keep my, my watching point?
How long, how how long, baby how long?
