    "How Long, How Long Blues" Lyrics

    Dinah Washington

    How long, how long, has that evenin' train been gone?
    How long, how long, baby how long?

    Heard the whistle blowin', couldn't see the train
    Way down in my heart I had an achin' pain
    How long, how long, how long?

    If I could holler like a mountain jack
    I'd go up on the mountain and call my baby back
    I went up on the mountain, looked as far as I could see
    The man had my woman and the blues had poor me

    I can see the green grass growin' on the hill
    But I ain't seen the green grass on a dollar bill
    I'm goin' down to Georgia, been up in Tennessee
    So look me over baby, last you'll see of me

    The brook runs into the river, river runs into the sea
    If I don't run into my baby, a train is goin' to run into me
