"I’m Nine Hundred Miles From Home"

[Verse 1]
Lord, I'll pawn you my watch and I'll pawn you chain
Pawn you, my gold diamond ring
That don't pay my little woman's fine
Pawn you my wagon and my team

[Chorus]
You can count the days I'm gone on the train that I left on
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles
If that train runs right I'll be home tomorrow night
Lord, I'm nine hundred miles from my home

[Verse 2]
I used to have a woman, she would walk and talk with me
Now she's just setting on some other rounder's knee
She's done told him what she won't tell me
And I hate to hear that lonesome whistle blow

[Chorus]
You can count the days I'm gone on the train that I left on
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles
If that train runs right I'll be home tomorrow night
Lord, I'm nine hundred miles from my home

[Verse 3]
I went down to the depot, Lord, not many days ago
Got on the train and the train went a-flyin'
I looked back behind and my baby was a-cryin'
And he's gone and left me alone

[Chorus]
You can count the days I'm gone on the train that I left on
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles
If that train runs right, she'll see John tomorrow night
Lord, I'm nine hundred mile away from my home
