A nice song from the past. I prefer the version by Boeny M but couldn't find a decent video.

One way ticket

One way ticket to the blues.

Choo choo train
truckin' down the track
gotta travel on it
never comin' back
ooh ooh got a one way ticket to the blues.

Bye my love
my babe is leavin' me
now only teardrops are all that I can see.

Ooh ooh
got a one way ticket to the blues
gotta take a trip to Lonesome town
gonna stay at Heartbreak Hotel.

A fool such as I
there never was
I cry my tears away.

One way ticket

Truckin’ on, truckin’ on

ONE WAY TICKET (AmE) = One single ticket (BrE). It’s a ticket which is valid only for one trip, to go to a place, but not to come back (that would be a return ticket).
THE BLUES= Sadness.
CHOO CHOO= The sound that a train makes.
TRUCKING= The verb “to truck” in America means “to drive”, but here it is simply “to travel”.
TRUCKING DOWN THE TRACK= Travelling along the rail track (the iron bars on which the train goes).
GOT A ONE WAY TICKET= I’ve got a single ticket (no return).
GOTTA TAKE A TRIP= I have to make a trip.
LONESOME= Solitary, with no company.
HEARTBREAK= When your heart breaks you feel extremely sad.
A FOOL SUCH AS I (formal) = A silly person like me.

Her lover is leaving her forever. He's leaving on a train, and she says that she also has a one-way ticket to the blues; that means that she is also starting a journey without return, going to the land of sadness forever (no return).
