Down to the depot mama Lord : I looked up on the board
Lord I asked the ticket agent : how long the southbound train been gone

Got my ticket Lord Lord : conductor can I ride
Lord I want to *get to* that basement : I'll be satisfied

Sweety in the basement mama Lord : sweet as she can be
Lord she is low and she is squatty : she's all right with me

Down to the railroad mama Lord : and I looked up at the sun
Lord if the train don't come : there's going to be some walking done

Don't want no woman Lord Lord : *declare I'll stay at home*
Because she will hide in the bushes : she is hard to find
