Baby, here I am
A-by the railroad track

A-comin' back to me
On 5:03, yeah
And it won't be long, no, no
It won't a-be long

I get so lonesome
Since he's been gone
There ain't a thing worth mentioning
No, a-been goin' on
And that's a-why I know
When the whistle blows, yeah
And it won't be long, no, no
It won't be long

My daddy told me
When he said goodbye, yes he did
I'll be back, baby
Oh, baby, bye and bye
That's why I've waited
So doggone long, yeah
A-can't you see how happy I am
Because my man is a-comin' back?

So now here I'll be
A-by the railroad track
Oh, waitin' for my baby, yeah
He's a-comin' back
A-comin' back to me
On 5:03, hey
And it won't be long, no, no
It won't a-be long

I ain't had no lovin'
Since you know when
He's a lonesome old rooster
And I'm a lonesome hen
That's a-why I know, yeah
When the whistle blows, yeah
And it won't a-be long, no, no
It won't be long

Mmm, I'm so excited
My knees are shakin', yeah
Mr. engineer, oh, don't you keep me waitin'
Hear me tellin' you
Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry

A-baby, here I am
Oh, by the railroad track, yeah
Waitin' for my baby
He's a-comin' back
A-comin' back to me
Lord, on 5:03, yeah
And it won't be long, hey
And it won't be long

And that's why I know
When the whistle blows, yeah
It won't a-be long, no, no
It won't be long
I don't know about you
But I know when the whistle blows, yeah
And it won't be long, no
It won't be long
Hey, it won't be long
Mr. engineer
Tell me it won't be long
It won't be long

And it won't be long

And it won't be long
Comin' back to me
And it won't be long
Hurry
