Blues in the Night

This song is by Woody Herman.

My Mama done told me
When I was in knee pants
My Mama done told me
"Son, a woman'll sweet talk
And give you the big eye
But when the sweet talkin's done"

A woman's a two face
A worrisome thing who'll leave you to sing the blues
In the night

Now the rain's a fallin'
Hear the train a callin'
Whoo-ee
(My Mama done told me)
Hear that lonesome whistle
Blowin' 'cross the trestle
Whoo-ee
(My Mama done told me)

A whoo-ee-duh whoo-ee
Ol' clickety clack's a echoin' back the blues
In the night

From Natchez to Mobile
From Memphis to St. Joe
Wherever the four winds blow
Yeah I've been in some big towns
And heard me some big talk
But there is one thing I know

A woman's a two face
A worrisome thing who'll leave you to sing the blues
In the night
