As recorded by Gene Autry, 1931.

Yonder comes a train, a Frisco train, comin' down the railroad track.
I'm a-goin' away, a-leavin' today; it ain't gonna bring me back.
I'm a-leavin' you, good mama, and I ain't never comin' back.

I'm a-leavin' town; my baby turned me down; goin' back to New Orleans.
I'm lookin' for a gal, a brand-new gal, I ain't never seen.
I'm a-lookin' for me a mama, Lord, I ain't never seen.

If love was liquor and I could drink, I'd be drunk all the time.
I'd go back to town in Birmingham with a dozen mamas o' mine.
I'd go back to Birmingham with a dozen gals o' mine.

If you got a good gal, a good ol' gal, you sure better keep her at home,
'Cause a red-headed mama, yes, sir, boy, I can't leave her alone.
Yes, a red-headed mama I sure can't leave alone..
