Crying bye-bye baby, bye an bye.
It's by and by and, baby won't you bye an bye.
Crying, bye n' bye and baby won't you bye an bye.

Says the good book tell you reap just what you sow?
The good book tell you baby, reap just what you know.
Thou reap enough so baby reap it, bye and bye.

Well, I'm goin' away won't be back 'till fall.
I'm goin' away, Lord baby, won't be back 'till fall.
If I meet my good gal someday we won't be back at all.

Says the good book tell you reap just what you sow?
A good book tell you baby, reap just what you sow.
Gonna reap it now or, baby, reap it bye an bye.

Well, it's two trains runnin', runnin' side by side.
There two trains runnin', now baby, runnin' side by side.
You've got my woman baby, know you're satisfied.
