Oh, I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
Oh, I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline

I went down to the depot, looked up on the board
I went down to the depot, looked up on the board
Saw that train a running but I could not get on board

I asked the conductor, "Can I ride the blinds?"
I asked the conductor, "Can I ride the blinds?"
Said, "Girl, buy your ticket, buy your ticket
'Cause this train ain't none of mine"

Oh, I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
Oh, I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
