Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
My mama done tol' me,
When I was in knee pants,
My mama done tol' me, Son!
A woman'll sweet talk
And 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 t'sing
The blues in the night
Verse 2
Now the rain's a-fallin',
Hear the train a-callin'
Whoo-ee (my mama done tol' me)
Hear that lonesome whistle
Blowin' 'cross the trestle,
Whoo-ee (my mama done tol' me)
A whoo-ee-duh-whoo-ee, ol' clickety clack's
A-echoin' back the blues in the night
Verse 3
The evenin' breeze'll start the trees to cryin'
And the moon'll hide its light
When you get the blues in the night
Verse 4
Take my word, the mockin' bird'll
Sing the saddest kind o' song
He knows things are wrong and he's right
Verse 5
From Natchez to Mobile,
From Memphis to St. Jo,
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 t'sing the blues in the night.
Verse 6
My mama was right,
There's blues in the night.
