    Lyrics

    My mama done tol' me when I was in pigtails
    My mama done tol' me, "Son
    A man'll sweet talk and give ya the big eye
    But when the sweet talkin's done

    A man'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', whooee
    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 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 ya 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
    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, 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, babe, only, only blues in the night
