The Train

Ah, tell me mama
Ah, tell me darlin'
Now that it's time for me to go
Ah, don't you hold me down
And kill the man you love

Sweet mama what you gonna do
Ah, now darlin' what you gonna do

Mama what you gonna do for love
Ah, when that sun shines
Ah, honey
And I'm living in your love again
Ah, won't you let me know
Do I stay or do I go
Oh, yeah,

Ah, darlin', what you gonna do now
I said now mama what you gonna do
Now mama what you gonna do for love
When I'm gone
When I'm gone
When I'm gone
When I'm gone
Ah, when I'm gone
Gone gone gone gone gone gone
When I'm gone

Darlin' so young and tender,
So quick to surrender
Everything that you don't own,
Know that you've got not
You make love like a skinned cat
Crawlin' across a highway
Tryin' to get to the other side,
Don't know why you just gotta try

Ah, when that devil
When that devil gets you honey
Oh, I want to know
That's when I'll come home and start to

Ah, sweet mama what you gonna do
Ah, sweet mama what you gonna do now
Aw Daddy what you gonna do for love

When I'm gone, when I'm gone, when I'm gone, Lord
When I'm gone, gone, gone, mama, when I'm gone
When I'm gone, yeah, sweet mama,
Yes, ah, when I'm gone

Get that devil get that devil
Gonna go back home, so long,
Just want to get some sun on my shoulder
And get a bit of sand in my shoes
I love you New York City, but I see that sun shinin'
And I don't want to stay here no more
Oh, what you gonna do
