    Got the blues
    Got the blues in the night

    My mama done told me
    When I was in knee pants
    My mama done told me

    "Son, a woman'll sweet talk
    And give you 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 a-callin', whoo-ee

    My mama done told me
    Hear that lonesome whistle
    Blowin' 'cross the trestle, whoo-ee

    My mama done told me
    A whoo-ee-duh whoo-ee
    Ol' clickety clack's a-echoin' back
    The blues in the night

    From Natchez to Mobile
    From Memphis to St. Joe
    Wherever the four winds blow

    I've been in some big towns
    And I heard me some big talk
    But there is one thing I know

    A woman's a two face
    A worrisome thing
    Who'll leave you to sing
    The blues in the night

    I can't lose those old blues
    My mama was right
    There's blues in the night
    In the night, in the night
