WON'T BE LONG
J. Leslie McFarland

CHORUS: Baby, here I am by the railroad track
Waitin' for my baby. He's comin' back,
Comin' back to me on the 503,
Ooh and it won't be long, no, it won't be long.

I get so lonesome since my man's been gone.
There ain't a thing worth mentioning, nothin' goin' on,
And that's why I know when the whistle blows
That it won't be long, no won't be long.

My daddy told me when he said goodbye,
I'll be back baby, oh baby, by and by.
That's why I've waited so doggone long, yeah.
Can't you see how happy I am because my man is comin' home? CHORUS

I ain't had no lovin' since you-know-when.
He's a lone old rooster and I'm a lonesome hen.
That's why I'm sure when the whistle blows,
Ooh, that it won't be long, no, it won't be long.

I'm so excited my knees are shakin'.
Mr. Engineer, don't you keep me waitin'.
Hear me tellin' you hurry, hurry
Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry. CHORUS

I know, oh when the whistle blows, yeah
That it won't be long, no it won't be long.
I know, oh when the whistle blows
That it won't be long, no it won't be long.

[Recorded by Eva Cassidy, Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Gilmer & the Fireballs, Tracy Nelson, Dusty Springfield, and many others.]
