I went down to the river
Just thirty-one days and nights
I went down to the river
Just thirty-one days and nights
I'm lookin for my good gal
Come back and treat me right

I ain't got me nobody
Car' my troubles to
I ain't got me nobody
Car' my troubles to
I tell you peoples
I don't know what to do

Just as sho' as yo train
Lord, backs up in your yard
Just as sho' as yo train, hear me
Lord, backs up in your yard
I'm goin to see my baby
If I have to ride the rods

I went away last summer
Got back in the fall
Went away last summer
Got back in the fall
My mind hadn't a-changed
I wouldn't a-come back a'tall

You can press my jumper
Iron my *overhauls
You can press my jumper
Iron on my overhauls
I'm going to the station
Meet the Cannonball.

~

*overhauls=overalls
