Down atta station
With my head hung down
Lookin' at my sugar, when she leave this town

Buy a ticket on a train
But I'll ride de blinds, baby
Be back home, again

Gon get some plow work
I'll cut your liver
Plug your heartache
Been so long, woo swoo, baby how long

See the green grass, growin' on a hill
Never seen no green grass on a dollar bill
How long, how long, baby how long

To a hollow tree

Come back to you
Hoo, low, hoo, woo, baby gone

You don't love me, goin try another who will
