Lyrics


I'm gonna take a freight train, down at the station I don't care where it goes Gonna climb me a mountain, the highest mountain Jump off, nobody gonna know

Can't you see oh can't you see What that woman, she been doin' to me Can't you see, can't you see What that woman lord been doin' to me

I'm gonna find me a hole in the wall I gonna crawl inside and die 'Cause my lady now, mean ol' woman lord, never told me goodbye

Can't you see oh can't you see What that woman lord she been doin' to me Can't you see, can't you see What that woman lord been doin' to me

I gonna buy me a ticket now, as far as I can Ain't a-never comin' back Ride me a Southbound All the way to Georgia now Till the train run out of track

Can't you see oh can't you see What that woman, she been doin' to me Can't you see, can't you see What that woman, she been doin' to me, oh lord

Can't you see oh can't you see What that woman lord she been doin' to me Can't you see oh can't you see What that woman, she been doin' to me

Can't you see (oh she's such a crazy lady) can't you see What that woman (what a woman) she been doin' to me Can't you see (lord I can't stand) oh can't you see What that woman, oh she been doin' to me

Can't you see (I'm gonna take a freight train) can't you see (I'm down at the station lord) what that woman (ain't never gonna go back) been doin' to me Can't you see oh can't you see (gonna ride me the southbound) (All the way to Georgia) what that woman (till the train run out of track) been doin' to me
