I've got the lonesome homesick blues
I've got them bad babe, down in my shoes
I left someone there that I might lose
That's why I've got these old homesick blues

It makes me homesick to hear your name
And hold you dear, in my arms again
I'm a gonna ride that old lonesome train
To the one I left back in Maces Spring

You told me once dear, you loved me so
And it's on my mind dear, every where I go
I'll soon be knowing if it is so
Or has your love for me grown cold

Oh, listen to that old lonesome train
It's a gonna carry me back again
To the one that told me their love was true
I'll spend the rest of my days with you

I've been away babe a long, long time
Now I'm riding down this old railroad line
And the one I love there, I hope to find
To ease this lonesome blue heart of mine

Carter Maybelle
