How Long, How Long Blues (Leroy Carr) How long, how long, has that evenin' train been gone? How long, how long, baby how long. Heard the whistle blowin', couldn't see the train Way down in my heart I had an achin' pain. How long, How long, how long. If I could holler like a mountain jack I'd go up on the mountain and call my baby back. I went up on the mounytain, looked as far as I could see The man had my woman and the blues had poor me. I can see the green grass growin' on the hill But I ain't seen the green grass on a dollar bill. I'm goin' down to Georgia, been up in Tennessee So look me over baby, last you'll see of me. The brook runs into the river, river runs into the sea If I don'r run into my baby, a train is goin' to run into me. RG
