IT TAKES A LONG LONG TRAIN WITH A RED CABOOSE Dick Charles / Lawrence W Marks Jr as recorded by Peggy Lee with Dave Barbour & his Orchestra 1947 also recorded by Dinah Shore '47 I went out to the depot to meet the twelve-o-two, He wrote me he'd be on it but the train went right on through! Hoo-oo-oo-ee! Hear that whistle say, "It takes a long long train with a red caboose to carry my blues away!". The engineer was wavin' as the train went down the track, I felt so heavy hearted that I couldn't wave him back! Hoo-oo-oo-ee! Hear that whistle say, "It takes a long long train with a red caboose to carry my blues away!". I listen to that lonesome whistle, Listen to that mournful bell; The echo said, "I told you so!", But my heart said, "Fare thee well!". I stood there in the station with his letter in my hand, Cried just like a baby 'cause I lost my lovin' man! Hoo-oo-oo-ee! Hear that whistle say, "It takes a long long train with a red caboose to carry my blues away!". I listen to that lonesome whistle, Listen to that mournful bell; The echo said, "I told you so!", But my heart said, "Fare thee well!". I know he didn't miss me 'cause he's always on the dot; He told me that he loved me but I guess he loves me not! Hoo-oo-oo-ee! Hear that whistle say, "It takes a long long train with a red caboose to carry my blues away!". Hoo-oo-oo-ee! Hoo-oo-oo-ee! Hoo-oo-oo-ee! Carry my blues away!
