Yes I rolled, baby.
Rolled all night long.
Lord, I rolled this mornin'.
Didn't know right from wrong.

[Chorus]
Lord, I know my baby.
She gonna jump an shout.
Lord, I know my little woman.
She gonna jump an shout.
When my train roll up.
And I'll come walkin' out.

Been a long time! 

[Chorus]

And you never blow the whistle.
And no fireman rung the bell.
And you never blow the whistle.
And no fireman rung the bell.
Lord, I didn't have time.
Lord, I didn't have time.
Tell my baby, fare you well.
