Lyrics

Well I been standin' on the corner, waiting for that morning train.
I been standin' on the corner, waiting for that morning train.
You see my blues fall down, Mama, like showers of rain.

I can't see no reason, why she treat me mean.
Say I can't see no reason, why she treat me mean.
Must be the meanest old gal, Mama, that I ever seen.

And I'll leave this morning, won't be back no more.
Say I'll leave this morning, won't be back no more.
I'm gonna roam that highway, 'til I'm eighty-four.
