TELL ME HOW LONG THE TRAIN'S BEEN GONE Henry Nemo / Brooks / Starr Kay Starr rec 1950 Now here's a little ditty about a depot disaster; We have a distressed damsel and the doggonest dilemma! A-tell me how long the train's been gone, A-tell me how long the train's been gone, A-tell me how long the train's been gone, The people keep a-comin' but the train's done gone! Ever'one knows the train don't wait, Ever'one knows the train don't wait; It's your own fault if the show up late, The people keep a-comin' but the train don't wait! Now the sun drops in the west, Up pops the same old moon, Same as the train to explain There'll be another choo-choo soon! A-tell me how long the train's been gone, A-tell me how long the train's been gone, A-tell me how long the train's been gone, The people keep a-comin' but the train's done gone! People comin', See I'm a-runnin'! See I'm a-runnin', a-shovin', a-breakin' down the gate! See I'm pushin', They're shovin', Well the people keep a-comin' but the train's done gone! Yes, the people keep comin', the train's got out, That's what everybody's talkin' about! You better get to movin', can't be late, Because the man that takes the tickets gonna close the gate! A-tell me how long the train's been gone, A-tell me how long the train's been gone, A-tell me how long the train's been gone, The people keep a-comin' but the train's done gone! The sun comes up, out from the west, Up pops the same old moon, Same as the train to explain There'll be another choo-choo soon! Tell me how long the train's been gone, Hhow long has the train been gone? Tell me how long the train's been gone, The people keep a-comin' but the train's done gone! People keep a-comin', Yes the people keep a-comin', But the train done gone! (Contributed by Peter Akers - December 2010)
