California Blues

This song is by Barbecue Bob and appears on the compilation album Barbecue Bob, Vol. 2 (1928-1929) (1991).

How long, how long, how long my train been gone?
How long, how long, how long my train been gone?
Been gone long enough to take you to your good gal home

Tell me wild women in California, where I so long to be
Tell me wild women in California, where I so long to be
Wild women and whiskey can make a fool out of me

They can lead me like a little Airedale, only seven weeks old
They can lead me like a little Airedale, that's only seven weeks old
They can lead me to the water, shake my head, "No, no, no."

The longest train I ever rode was seventy-nine coaches long
Longest train I ever rode was seventy-nine coaches long
But if the man hadn't sent me around the mountain, I'd've been gone

I was on my way to California, where I so long to be
I was on my way to California, where I so long to be
Honey, I'm from Missouri, you have to excite me
