    My mama done told me when I was in knee-pants
    My mama done told me, she said Son
    A woman will sweet-talk ya, she'll give you the big eye
    But when that sweet talkin' is 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 a callin', oooo-ee
    Hear the lonesome whistle blowin' 'cross the trestle, oooo-ee

    Oooo-ee-a-oooo-ee, ol' clickety-clack
    Comes echoing back the blues in the night
    The evening breeze will start the trees to cryin'
    And the moonlight will hide its light

    When you get the blues in the night
    Take my word, the mockingbird
    He will sing the saddest kind of song
    He knows things are wrong and he's right

    From Natchez to Mobile
    From Memphis to St. Joe
    Wherever the four winds seem to blow
    I've been in some big towns and I've heard me some big talkin'

    But there is one thing I know
    A woman's a two-face
    She's a worrisome thing
    Who'll leave you to sing the blues in the night

    Got a case of the blues in the night
    Don't know what to do
    Blues every night
    It's all because of you
    [Repeat: x 2]
