The wolf it howls on the delta plains
I mistreated my woman and she still feels the same
seen a lantern light through the devil’s eyes
tempting a poor boy to come inside
Oh I hear that Clarksdale Whistle blowing

Chicago calls like a driving rain
Stoval has got me in a ball and chain
seen a lantern light through the devil’s eyes
nothing left to do but get on that train and ride
Oh I hear that Clarksdale Whistle blowing

The wolf it howls on the delta plains
drives a lonely man right out of his brain
my eyes dry up when his fingers cry
sometimes the blues can keep a man alive
Oh I hear that Clarksdale Whistle blowing
