Lyrics
How long
Baby, how long
That evenin' train been gone?
So long, honey, so long

I got to the station
When she left town
I'm blue an disgusted
I didn't know where to be bound
Howlin', how long
Baby, how long
Honey, how

How long, baby
That evenin' train been gone?
But so long
Baby, so long
Honey, so long

How long
Baby, how
Am I to be
Treated wrong?
But in so long
Honey, so long
Honey, so

How long
Baby, how
Why must I keep my
Watch in pawn?
But so long
Baby, so long
Honey, so

How long
Baby, how
How long, to sing this
But honey
Honey, so long
And baby, so
