Way down in old Arkansas, In old Dixie, my log cabin home, Where the southern folks are good and kind, I find; I see the right track, I got my trunk packed, And I have asked the good Lord to take the train back That's headin' south; Take me to Dardanelle, Ain't got no time to lose! I'm tired o' roamin, I'm tired o' roamin, I long to see my mammy and my home in Old log cabin land, way down in the dell, I've got the Arkansas blues! Yes, I've got the Arkansas blues! Blues just make me weep and cry, I'm so lonesome, don't know what to do! Miss the good old days that used to be. Oh, what a fool am I To be grievin', to be feelin' blue, For my mammy's waitin' patiently for me. I'm on the right track, I've got my trunk packed, And I have asked the good Lord to take the train back That's headin' south; Take me to Dardanelle, Ain't got no time to lose! I'm tired o' roamin, I'm tired o' roamin, I long to see my mammy and my home in Old log cabin land, way down in the dell, I've got those Arkansas blues, oh-ho! Yes, I've got the Arkansas blues!
