I wonder why that southbound train don't run
I wonder why that southbound train don't run
Lord, you don't need no tellin', little girl, you know what you've done

I'm a hard-workin' man, I catch the devil everywhere I go

Standin' at the station, Lord, waitin' for a train
Standin' at the station, Lord, I was just waitin' for a train
Lord, deep down in my poor heart, baby, that a lie don't ache in pain
I've got my ticket, mister conductor man, can I ride?
I've got my ticket, please mister conductor man, let me ride
Lord, if I make it to the lowland, I'll be satisfied
