  • I'm goin' home, friends sit down and tell my, my mama
    Friends, sit down and tell my mama
    I'm goin' home, sit down and tell my mama
    I'm goin' home, sit down and tell my mama
    And that no way for me to get along

    These low-down women, mama, they treated your, poor son wrong
    Mama, treated me wrong
    Low-down women, mama, treated your poor son wrong
    Low-down women, mama, treated your poor son wrong
    And that's no way for him to get along

    They treated me like my poor heart
    Was made of a rock or stone
    Mama, made of a rock or stone
    My poor heart was made of a rock or stone
    My poor heart was made of a rock or stone
    And that's no way for me to get along

    I stood on the roadside, I cried alone, all by myself
    Cried alone by myself
    Stood on the roadside cried all by myself
    I stood on the roadside cried all by myself
    And that's no way for me to get along

    I just want some, train to come along and take me friends away from here
    Friends, take me away from here
    Train to come along and take me away from here
    Some train to come along and take me away from here
    And that's no way for me to get along Writer/s: REV. ROBERT WILKINS
