Waiting for a Train
All around the water tank waiting for a train A thousand miles away from home sleeping in the rain I walked up to a brakeman gave him a line of talk He said if you've got money boy I'll see that you don't walk I haven't got a nickel not a penny can I show Get off get off you railroad bum and he slammed the boxcar door He put me off in Texas a state I dearly love The wide open spaces all around me the moon and stars up above Nobody seems to want me or to lend me a helping hand I'm on my way from Frisco going back to Dixie Land Though my pocketbook is empty and my heart is full of pain I'm a thousand miles away from home just a waiting for a train
