Won't Be Long Lyrics

by Dusty Springfield

Baby, here I am by the railroad track
Oh, waitin' for my baby, he's comin' back
Comin' back to me, on five O three
And it won't be long, no, no, it won't be long

I get so lonesome
Since he's been gone
There ain't a thing worth mentioning
No, been goin' on

And that's why I know
When the whistle blows, yeah
And it won't be long, no, no
It won't be long

My daddy told me
When he said goodbye, yes he did
I'll be back, baby, oh
Baby, bye and bye

That's why I've waited
So doggone long, yeah
Can't you see how happy I am
Because my man is comin' back?

So now here I'll be, by the railroad track
Oh, waitin' for my baby, yeah, he's comin' back
Comin' back to me, on five O three, hey
And it won't be long, no, no, it won't be long

Well I ain't had no lovin'
Since you know when
He's a lonesome old rooster
And I'm a lonesome hen

That's why I know, yeah
When the whistle blows, yeah
And it won't be long, no, no
It won't be long

Mmm, I'm so excited
My knees are shakin', yeah
Mr. Engineer, oh, don't you keep me waitin'
Hear me tellin' you

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry
Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry

Baby, here I am, oh, by the railroad track, yeah
Waitin' for my baby, he's comin' back
Comin' back to me, Lord, on five O three, yeah
And it won't be long, hey, and it won't be long

And that's why I know
When the whistle blows, yeah
It won't be long, no, no
It won't be long

I don't know about you
But I know when the whistle blows, yeah
And it won't be long, no
It won't be long

Hey, it won't be long
Mr. Engineer, tell me it won't be long
It won't be long, all right
And it won't be long

Here it comes now
And it won't be long
Comin' back to me
And it won't be long, hurry
