Sand Mountain Blues

print

Standing by the railroad waiting for a train
I’m gonna catch that midnight train and never come back again
It’s a lonesome feeling, Sand Mountain blues

I went to the gypsy just to hear what she would say
She said, that girl don’t love you and you’d better be on your way
You’re gonna be sorry for breaking my heart

I don’t know where to go, any old place will do
I’m leaving old Sand Mountain, just getting away from you
You’re gonna be sorry for breaking my heart

There’s other girls around here and I could love ’em too
But every time I saw you, it’d make me sad and blue
It’s a lonesome feeling, Sand Mountain blues

When it makes you lonesome to hear that freight train blow
Then you will know I’m riding, but I didn’t want to go
It’s a lonesome feeling, Sand Mountain blues

When it’s raining on Sand Mountain, and raining kind of slow
Then maybe you’ll remember and ?? you make me go
You’re gonna be sorry for breaking my heart

I am just a poor boy, and work’s my middle name
I guess that’s why you said goodbye, but I love you just the same
You’re gonna be sorry for breaking my heart

If you ever need me, then maybe I’ll come back
I hear that train a-coming, just coming down the track
It’s a lonesome feeling, Sand Mountain blues
