    Lyrics

    My mama done tol' me
    When I was in pigtails
    My mama done tol' me
    A man's gonna sweet-talk and give you the big eyes
    But when the sweet-talking's done
    A man is a two-face, a worrisome thing
    Who'll leave you to sing the blues in the night

    Now the rain's a-fallin'
    Hear the train a-callin, "whoo-ee!"
    My mama done tol' me
    Hear that lonesome whistle blowin' 'cross the trestle, "whoo-ee!"
    My mama done tol' me
    A-whooee-ah-whooee ol' clickety-clack's
    A-echoin' back th' blues in the night

    The evenin' breeze'll start the trees to cryin'
    And the moon'll 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 man's a two-face, a worrisome thing
    Who'll leave you to sing the blues in the night

    The evenin' breeze'll start the trees to cryin'
    And the moon'll 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 man's a two-face, a worrisome thing
    Who'll leave ya to sing the blues in the night
    Yes the lonely, lonely blues in the night
