    My little woman, my little woman
    My little woman, she don't believe in me
    My little woman, my little woman, yeah
    My little woman, she don't believe in me, yeah
    Lord, now she left me early this mo'nin'
    An' she went down on to Hadley Road

    Lord, I believe I'll go ov'r to the drugsto', now
    Call my baby up ov'r the telephone
    I believe I'll go ov'r to the drugsto'
    Call my baby up ov'r the telephone
    Now, an' I want you to give me-a central

    An' tell me how long has the big boat been gone?

    (instrumental, piano & harp)

    I was standin' at the landin'
    Wonderin' what boat, Lord, boys must I ride?
    Lord, I was standin' at the landin', yeah
    Wonderin' what boat, Lord, boys must I ride
    I, since I ain't no hurrin'
    I believe I wait 'chere, on the Katy flyin'

    Once I was down by the landing
    When the big boat, Lord, pull of his load
    Once I was down by the landing, n'yeah
    A-when the big boat, Lord, pull off his load, understand
    Lord, as I been-a hurtin' me to my heart n
    I was wonderin' where in the world did my baby go, now?
