How Long
Lead Belly - Music: Leroy Carr, Text: Ann Engeberg

How long, babe, how long
Has that evenin' train been gone?
How long, how, how long, baby, how long

Here and I stood at the station, watched my baby leavin' town
Blue and disgusted, nowhere could peace be found
How long, how how long, baby, how long

Now I can hear the whistle blowin' but i cannot see the train
And it's deep down in my heart, baby, there lies an achin' pain
How long, how, how long, baby, how long

Sometimes I feel so disgusted and I feel so blue
That I hardly know what in this world, baby, just to do
How long, how, how long, baby, how long

And if I could holler like I was a mountain jack
I'd go up on the mountain, I'd call my baby back
How long, how, how long, baby, how long
