I asked for water, and she gave me gasoline
I asked for water, gave me gasoline
I asked for water, and she gave me gasoline, lord, lordy, lord

Crying, lord, I wonder will I ever get back home
Crying, lord, I wonder will I ever get back home, lord, lordy, lord

I went to the depot, looked up on the board
I looked all over, how long has this east-bound train been gone?

It's done taken your fairo, blowed it's smoke on you
It's done taken your fairo, blowed it's smoke on you, lord, lordy, lord

Lord, I asked the conductor, - could I ride the blinds?
Spoken: -want to know, can a broke man ride the blinds
- son, buy your ticket, buy your ticket, 'cause this train ain't none of mine
- son, buy your ticket; train ain't none of mine

- son, buy your ticket, 'cause this train ain't none of mine, lord, lordy, lord
Train ain't none of mine
