My momma done told me
When I was in pigtails 
My momma done told me, hon
A man's gonna sweet-talk
And give you the glad eye
But when that sweet-talkin's done
A man is a two-faced, a worrisome thing
Who'll leave you to sing the blues in the night 
Now the rain's a fallin'
Hear the trains a-callin' hooey 
My momma done told me
Hear that lonesome whistle
 Blowing across the trestle, hooey 
My momma done tole me, a-hooey, a-hooey
Old clickety clack is echoing back the blues in the night 
The evenin' breeze will start the trees to praying 
And the moon will dim its light 
When you hear the blues in the night 
Mark my word the mockingbird 
Will sing the saddest kind of song
He knows things are wrong 
And he's right 
La ha ha ha-a
La ha ha-a
From Natchez to Mobile  BRFrom Memphis to St. Joe
 BRWherever the four winds blow
BRI've been to some big towns 
BRI've heard me some big talk
 BRBut there is one thing I know
 BRA man is a two-faced, a worrisome thing
BRWho'll leave you to sing the blues in the night  BR 
BRLa ha ha-a
BRLa ha ha-a
BRMy momma done told me there's blues in the night  BR  BRLyrics provided by Betty E. Fisher (
