HOW LONG MUST I WAIT FOR YOU
(Thompson)
LIL' ESTHER & HER TINSTARS (RARITY C192706)

You told me you would me at the station gate
For our honeymoon excursion
You told me you would me at the station gate
But I got a different version
Train number one is gone
Train number two is gone
Train number three is been gone
How long must I wait for you?
Train number four is gone
Train number five is gone
Train number six is been gone
How long must I wait for you?

I got my tickets and a reservation set for two
Luggage waiting on the track
But I got no use for reservations without you
I'm gonna give the tickets back
'Cause train number one is back
Train number two is back
Train number three is been back
How long must I wait for you?

I got the tickets and a reservation set for two
Luggage waiting on the track
But I got no use for reservations without you
I'm gonna give the tickets back
'Cause train number one is back
Train number two is back
Train number three is been back
How long must I wait for you?
How long, baby
How long, baby
How long, how long
How long must I wait for you?
