Blues In The Night Lyrics

My mama done told me

 

When I was in knee pants

 

My mama done told me

 

Son a woman'll sweet talk

 

And give you the big eye

 

But when the sweet talkin' is done

 

A woman's a two face

 

A worrisome thing

Who'll leave you to sing

The blues in the night

 

Now the rain's a fallin'

 

Hear the train a callin' whoo ee

 

My mama done told me

 

Hear that lonesome whistle

 

Blowin' cross the trestle whoo ee

 

My mama done told me

 

A whoo ee duh whoo ee

 

Old clickety clack's a echoin' back

The blues in the night

 

Evenin' breeze'll start the trees

 

To cryin' and the moon'll

Hide it's light

 

When you get the blues in

The night

 

But Take my word

 

The mockingbird'll sing

The saddest kind of song

 

He knows things are wrong

 

And he's right

 

From Natchez to Mobile

 

From Memphis to St Joe

 

Wherever the four winds blow

 

Yes I've been in the big towns

 

And I heard me some big talk

 

But there is one thing I know

 

A woman's a two face

 

A worrisome thing

 

Who'll leave you to sing

The blues in the night

 

From Natchez to Mobile

 

From Memphis to St Joe

 

Wherever the four winds blow

 

I've been in some big towns

 

And I heard me some big talk

 

But there is one thing I know

 

A woman's a two face

 

A worrisome thing

Who'll leave you to sing

 

The blues in the night

 

My mama was here

 

My mama was right

 

There's blues all blues evernight
