Words and music by Leroy Carr
As recorded by Scrapper Blackwell and Leroy Carr in 1932

lyrics

Mr. Engineer Man
Turn your train around
My baby’s on there
And she’s southern-bound
How long, has that evening train been gone?

He left me standing
Throwing up my hands
Said she was moving
Back to his other woman
How long, has that evening train been gone?


Now here I stand
All blue and sad
Thinking how much I loved her
Ain’t that too bad?
How long, has that evening train been gone?

If I had known
He was gonna leave me that way
My poor broken heart
Would have to pay
How long, has that evening train been gone?

Well she’s gone
There’s nothing for me to say
But maybe she will come
Back to me someday
Well how long, has that evening train been gone?
