Well, I'm wondering and wondering
Where has my baby gone?
Oooooh, wondering, wondering
Where my baby gone?
Well, tell me pretty baby
Why did you leave me alone?
Well, I done all I could
Honey, I said I couldn't have do no more
Oooooh, I done all I could
Baby, I just couldn't have done no more
Well, I don't think you had to leave me baby
Mama, I don't believe you had to go
So wherever you are baby
Catch the fastest train home to me
Well, wherever you are little darling
Get the fastest train home to me
Well, I'm lonesome and I'm lonesome
And I'm happy as a man can be
Well if I never see you again baby
Well remember what I say
Well don't get that old sand baby
Where the sun don't shine in my back door someday
