(Muddy Waters' version)

Words & Music by:

McKinley Morganfield (Muddy Waters)



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


Well, ain't not one, (ho!) goin' my way.


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

A-runnin' just 'fore day, it's runnin' just 'fore day.

Oh, Lord.  Sure 'nuff, then.  Oh, well...


Hmm, (ho!) (ho!) somebody help me (ho!) with these blues.

Well, now, she's the one I'm lovin', she 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 my life.

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

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

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


Long, she's long and tall, 'til she weeps like a willow tree.

Well, now, then say she's no good,

But she's all right, she's all right with me

She's all right, she's all right

She's all right, she's all right...
