SON HOUSE lyrics - I Ain't Goin' To Cry No More

SON HOUSE
"I Ain't Goin' To Cry No More"

Well, looky here, honey
I ain't gonna cry no more

I went to the depot and I, I looked up on the board
I went to the depot, I looked up on the board
Well, I couldn't see no train
I couldn't hear no whistle blow

Engineer blowed the whistle and the fireman, he rung the bell
Oh, oh, the fireman, he rung the bell
You know my woman was on board
She was wavin' back, "Fare you well"

If I had any strength I would set this train off the track
I would set this train off the track
Else you make me a promise
You gonna bring my baby back

You ain't comin' back no more
I don't believe you ever comin' back no more
You leavin' now, baby
Bet you hangin' creeper on my door

I'm gonna miss you from rollin' in my arms
I'm gonna miss you from rollin' in my arms
If I can't get no stamps and paper
I'm gonna sit down and telephone
