additional lyrics:

When the train rolled up to the station, I looked her in the eye
When the train rolled up to the station, I looked her in the eye
Well, I was lonesome, I felt so lonesome
and I could not help but cry
All my love’s in vain

When the train left the station with two lights on behind
When the train left the station with two lights on behind
Well the blue light was my blues
and the red light was my mind
All my love’s in vain

Ohh ho ho ho Willie Mae
Ohh ho ho ho Willie Mae
Ohh ho ho ho Willie Mae
All my love’s in vain
