Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
My mama done told me when I was in knee-pants
My mama done told me, she said Son
A woman will sweet-talk ya, she'll give you the big eye
But when that sweet talkin' is done
Verse 2
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 a callin', oooo-ee
Hear the lonesome whistle blowin' 'cross the trestle, oooo-ee
Verse 3
Oooo-ee-a-oooo-ee, ol' clickety-clack
Comes echoing back the blues in the night
The evening breeze will start the trees to cryin'
And the moonlight will hide its light
Verse 4
When you get the blues in the night
Take my word, the mockingbird
He will sing the saddest kind of song
He knows things are wrong and he's right
Verse 5
From Natchez to Mobile
From Memphis to St. Joe
Wherever the four winds seem to blow
I've been in some big towns and I've heard me some big talkin'
Verse 6
But there is one thing I know
A woman's a two-face
She's a worrisome thing
Who'll leave you to sing the blues in the night
Verse 7
Got a case of the blues in the night
Don't know what to do
Blues every night
It's all because of you
[Repeat: x 2]
