This song is by Big Bill Broonzy and appears on the compilation album Do That Guitar Rag 1928-1935 (1973).

Down to the depot mama Lord, I looked up on the board
Down to the depot mama Lord, I looked up on the board
Lord I asked the ticket agent, how long the southbound train been gone

Got my ticket Lord Lord, conductor can I ride
Got my ticket Lord Lord, conductor can I ride
Lord I want to get to that basement, I'll be satisfied

Sweety in the basement mama Lord, sweet as she can be
Sweety in the basement mama Lord, sweet as she can be
Lord she is low and she is squatty, she's all right with me

Down to the railroad mama Lord, and I looked up at the sun
Down to the railroad mama Lord, and I looked up at the sun
Lord if the train don't come, there's going to be some walking done

Don't want no woman Lord Lord, declare I'll stay at home
Don't want no woman Lord Lord, declare I'll stay at home
Because she will hide in the bushes, she is hard to find
