Down Yonder
Del Wood Lyrics

Railroad train, railroad train, hurry some more;
Put a little steam on just like never before.
Hustle on, bustle on, I've got the blues,
Yearning for my Swanee shore.
Brother if you only knew, you'd want to hurry up, too.

Down yonder, someone beckons to me,
Down yonder, someone reckons on me.
I seem to see a race in memory
Between the Natchez and the Robert E. Lee.
Swanee shore, I miss you more and more;
Ev'ryday, my mammy land, you're simply grand
Down yonder, when the folks get the news,
Don't wonder at the hullabaloo.
There's Daddy and Mammy, there's Ephram and Sammy,
Waitin' down yonder for me.

Summer night, fields of white, bright cotton moon ?
My, but I feel glad I'm gonna see you all soon!
'Lasses cakes mammy bakes, I taste them now.
I'll see my sweetie once more,
There's lots of kissing in store.

I saw her do this at the Grand Ole Opry in 1980. She came out and laid her purse down on the piano, tore it up, took a bow, picked up her purse, hugged a few people and left. Didn't act like a star at all. Probably what made this song so great. She was genuine.

What a maroon

Why would she tear it up?
was she mad at the crew or the producer. Doesn't sound professional to me.

I heard Del  Wood play this song in 1969 at the EM club in AN Khe Vietnam . There were about 50 of us drunker than hell because we were going home. I will never forget forget how great she was and how happy we were.
