ARETHA FRANKLIN

ARETHA FRANKLIN - Won't Be Long

rate me

Baby, here I am<br />

By the railroad track<br />

Waiting for my baby<br />

He's coming back<br />

<br />

Coming back to me<br />

On the 503<br />

And I won't be long<br />

No, I won't be long<br />

<br />

I get so lonesome<br />

Since the man has been gone<br />

There ain't a thing worth mentioning<br />

Nothing been going on<br />

<br />

And that's why I know<br />

When the whistle blows<br />

Yeah, that I won't be long<br />

No, no, I won't be long<br />

<br />

My daddy told me<br />

When he said goodbye, yes, he did<br />

"I'll be back, baby<br />

Baby, bye and bye"<br />

<br />

And that's why I waited<br />

So doggone long, yeah<br />

Can't you see how happy I am?<br />

Because the man is coming home<br />

<br />

So now, here I be<br />

By the railroad track<br />

Oh, waiting for my baby<br />

He's coming back<br />

<br />

Coming back to me<br />

On the 503<br />

Yeah, and I won't be long<br />

No, no, I won't be long<br />

<br />

I ain't had no loving<br />

Since you know when<br />

He's a long gone rooster<br />

And I'm a lonesome hen<br />

<br />

And that's why I'm sure<br />

When the whistle blows<br />

Yeah, that I won't be long<br />

No, no, I won't be long<br />

<br />

I'm so excited<br />

My knees are shaking, yeah<br />

Mr. Engineer<br />

Don't you keep me waiting<br />

<br />

Hear me telling you<br />

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry<br />

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry<br />

<br />

Baby, here I am<br />

Oh, by the railroad track<br />

Waiting for my baby<br />

He's coming back<br />

<br />

Coming back to me<br />

Lord, on the 503<br />

Yeah and I won't be long<br />

No, I won't be long<br />

<br />

Yeah, I know<br />

When the whistle blows<br />

Hey, that I won't be long<br />

No, no, I won't be long
