From the recording Delta Flyer Blues

Lyrics

I’ll be standing at the turnstile when the ticket man come around.
I’ll be standing at the turnstile when the ticket man come around.
My baby’s in Mississippi and that train gonna take me down.

When I left home for Chicago, near broke that little girl’s heart.
When I left home for Chicago, damn near broke that little girl’s heart.
Going back down to Mississippi cause I can’t stand that we’re apart.

I’m gonna ride that Delta Flyer to the Vicksburg Station sign.
I’m gonna ride that Delta Flyer to the Vicksburg Station sign.
I can’t stand the thought, ya’ll, of having that little girl down there cryin’.

Delta Flyer, Delta Flyer, take this poor boy on back home.
Delta Flyer, Delta Flyer, please take this poor boy on back home.
Cause I can’t stand the thought of leaving that little girl all alone.
No, I can’t stand the thought, ya’ll, of leaving that little girl all alone.
