I’ve got the lonesome old homesick blues
I’ve got ’em bad babe down in my shoes
I left someone there that I might lose
That’s why I’ve got these old homesick blues.
It makes me homesick to hear your name
To want you near in my arms again
I’m gonna ride in your lonesome train
To the one I left back in Mason Springs
I’ve been away for a long long time
I’m riding down this old railroad line
To the one I left in that home of mine
this lonesome blue heart of mine.
You told me once dear you loved me so
And it’s on my mind now everywhere I go
I’ll soon be knowing if this is so
Or has your love for me gone cold
