Little Children's Blues
Lead Belly

(spoken: These blues, little children made about somebody that’s gone away
And that’s sad, and that gives you the blues)

As I went down to the freight depot
That train come a-rollin’ by
I waved my hand at my mama that I loved
Goin’ down that railroad track

She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone
And no cryin’ won’t bring her back
She’s the only mother that I ever did love
Goin’ down that railroad track

I went down to the freight depot
And looked up on the sign
She’s the only mother that I ever did love, in this world
I was hanging my head and cryin’

Twas fare you well, fare you well
And she’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone
She’s gone down that lonesome railroad, this track
And she left me to weep and sing this song
