I wonder why that southbound train don't run
I wonder why that southbound train don't run
Woman you don't need no telling, you know just what you done

I got my ticket I'm holding it in my hand
I got my ticket I'm holding it in my hand
I got a real good woman, but the poor fool don't understand

I'm a hard‑working man, to be mistreated where I go
I'm a hard‑working man, to be mistreated where I go
When I get down in the lowlands, I won't be mistreated no more

I'm going to Jackson, Greenwood is where I belong
I'm going to Jackson, Greenwood is where I belong
Anywhere in Mississippi, is my native home

I'm just like my mother left me, I ain't got nothing at all
I'm just like my mother left me, I ain't got nothing at all
I'm just like a big mule baby, I ain't got no stall
