I was standing down New York town one day
I was standing down in New York town one day
I was standing down in that New York town one day
Just singing “Hey hey hey”

I was broke and I didn’t have a dime
I was broke and I didn’t have a lousy dime
I was broke and I didn’t have a dime
Every good man gets a little hard luck some time

Every good man gets a little hard luck some time
Every good man gets a little hard luck some time
Every good man gets a little hard luck some time
When he’s down and out and ain’t got a lousy dime

What you do woman, that sure don’t worry me
What you do woman, Lord, that sure don’t worry me
What you do woman, that sure don’t worry me
I got more women than the Civil War set free

And I can get more women than a passenger train can haul
I can get more women than a passenger train can haul
I can get more women than a passenger train can haul
Just singing “Hey hey hey”

I’m gonna ride that new morning railroad
I’m gonna ride that new morning train
I’m gonna ride that new morning train
And I ain’t a-comin' back to this man’s town again

I ain’t a-comin' back to this man’s town again
No I ain’t-a comin' back to this man’s town again
I ain’t comin' back to this man’s town again
Just singing “Hey, hey hey”

Singing “Hey hey hey”
Just singing “Hey hey hey”
Singing “Hey hey hey”
Just singing “Hey hey hey”
