my lyricsbox
My mama done tol' me, when I was in knee-pants
My mama done tol' me, " son a woman'll sweet talk"
And she'll give ya the big eye, but when the sweet talkin's done
A woman's a two-face, a worrisome thing who'll leave ya to sing
the blues in the night

Now the rain's a-fallin', hear the train's a-callin,
"whooee!"
(my mama done tol' me) hear dat lonesome whistle blowin' 'cross
the trestle, "whooee!"
(my mama done tol' me) a-whooee-ah-whooee ol' clickety-clack's
a-echoin' back thr blues in the night
The evenin' breeze will start the trees to cryin' and the moon will
hide it's light when you get the blues in the night
Take my word, the mockingbird'll sing the saddest kind o' song,
he knows things are wrong, and he's right

From natchez to mobile, from memphis to st. joe, wherever the
four winds blow
I been in some big towns an' heard me some big talk, but there
is one thing I know
A woman's a two-face, a worrisome thing who'll leave ya to sing
the blues in the night

So, let me give ya fair warnin'
You may feel fine in the mornin'
But look out for those blues in the night
