Words & Music by:

McKinley Morganfield (Muddy Waters)



Well, now, there's two, there's two trains running.


Well, they ain't never, no, going my way.


Well, now, one run at midnight and the other one running just 'fore day.

It's running just 'fore day, it's running just 'fore day

Oh, Lord. Sure 'nuff they is.  Oh, well...


Mm mm, ho ho ho, somebody help me, ho, with these blues.

Well, now, she's the one I'm loving, she's the one I do hate to lose.

I do hate to lose, I do hate to lose.

Oh, Lord. Sure 'nuff I do.  Oh, well...


I been crazy; yes, I been a fool, I been crazy, oh, all of my life.

Well I done fell in love with a, with another man's wife.

With another man's wife, with another man's wife.

Oh, Lord.  Sure 'nuff I done.  Oh, well...


Lord, she's so long and tall, Ôtil she weep like a willow tree.

Well, now, they say she's no good, but she's alright,

She's alright with me.

She's alright, she's alright, she's alright, she's alright...
