Be easy mama, don't you fade away
Be easy mama, don't you fade away
I'm goin where the Southern Cross the Yella Dog

Now, I'm pleading here with you
If I'm not around in your arms
Lord, I'm pleading hear me where you are
Bide your lonely heart

Been a desperad-y
And I didn't wanna ride no trains

I want to ride the Yella Dog world
While them red - green change
I wanna ride the Yella Dog world
While it rain, rainy day

I thought deep in my own family
Now, I don't remember a name

('two more verses')

Set deep in my saddle all the night
Don't remember her name
(But he didn't catch her name)
(So he kicked her off the train)

Got to shove her off the train
Police surround the car.
(Wasn't your sister round this car)

(Police push ya around)
(Gonna send you to Sing-Sing)
