Blues in the Night Lyrics

My mama done told me
When I was in pigtails
My mama done told, honey,
A man's gonna sweet talk
Give you the big eye,
But when the sweet talk is done
A man is a two-face,
A worrisome thing who'll leave you,
Singing the blues in the night

Now you know the rain is fallin',
Hear that train a callin': "whooee",
My mama done told me,
Oh that lonesome whistle,
Blowing cross the trestle,
My mama done told me
A "whooee" is a "whooee"
Clicket clacks echoin' back
The blues in the night
The evening breeze will start
The trees to cryin'
And the moonlight hides its light
When you get the blues in the night
Oh take my word the mockingbird will sing
His saddest saddest kind of song
He knows things are wrong and he's right
From Natchez to Mobile,
from Memphis to St. Joe,
Wherever the four winds blow
Yeah I've been to the big towns
And I heard me some big talk too
But when the big talk is done
A man is a two-face
A worrisome thing leave you
Singing oh the blues in the night
