LYRIC

Two Nineteen Blues (2:19 Blues)

Goin’ down to the river gonna take along my rockin’ chair
And if the blues don’t get me gonna rock, rock
Rock away from here
Gonna lay my head down on some lonesome railroad line
Let the two-nineteen come along
And pacify my mind

I keep movin’ on down that railroad line
I got a heavy load an’ a worried mind
Tryin’ to find some place to settle down
Well there’s just one thing I’d like to know
And that’s where in the world can a poor man go
When he’s tired o’ travelin’ round from town to town

Goin’ down to the river gonna take along my rockin’ chair
And if the blues don’t get me gonna rock, rock
Rock away from here
Gonna lay my head down on some lonesome railroad line
Let the two-nineteen come along
And pacify my mind

Well they arrested me in a town down south
I had empty pockets, I was down in the mouth
They locked me up and threw away the key
I had bad food and a dirty cell
An’ I hit that guard and ran like hell,
Sheriff he’s still askin’ ‘round about me

Goin’ down to the river gonna take along my rockin’ chair
And if the blues don’t get me gonna rock, rock
Rock away from here
Gonna lay my head down on some lonesome railroad line
Let the two-nineteen come along
And pacify my mind
