An I got up this mo'nin'
A light on in my room
An I got up this mo'nin
A light on in my room
An I looked behind me
An I found my Sarah, gone

If a man don't never study
A-you will never have no blues
If a man wouldn't study
You would never have no blues
But you get to thinkin' way back
The way your baby used to do

I got a little, Sarah
She weigh about ninety pounds
I got all a little, Sarah
She weigh about ninety pounds
Now but her mama an papa
They sho' don't 'llow me me 'round

I'm gon' sing you a song, baby
I ain't gon' sing no more
I'm gon' sing this song, baby
I ain't gon' sing no mo'
I'm gon' hang 'is mandolin under my shoulder
Right down Front Street, I go

I can hear that old train comin'
Ah, it must-a-be comin' after me
I can hear that old train a-comin'
Must-a-be comin' after me
An I'm gon' slip right by
An call to my same old used to be.
