    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,
    (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
