How Long Blues

by Leroy Carr & Scrapper Blackwell

How long babe how long
Has that evenin’ train been gone?
How long, how, how long, baby how long?

Went and asked at the station: ‘why’s my baby leavin’ town?’
You were disgusted, nowhere could peace be found
For how long, how, how long, baby how long?

I can hear the whistle blow’n but I cannot see no train
And it’s deep down in my heart baby, there’s lies an achin’ pain
For how long, how, how long, baby how long?

Sometimes I feel so disgustin’ and I feel so blue
That I hardly know what in this world baby just to do
For how long, how, how long, baby how long?

And if I could holler, like I was a mountain train
I’d go up on the mountain and I’d call my baby back
But for how long, how, how long, baby how long?

And someday you gonna be sorry that you done me wrong
But it will be too late, I will be gone
For so long, so long, baby so long?

My mind gets a ramblin’, I feel so bad
Thinkin’ about the bad luck that I have had
For how long, how, how long, baby how long?
