"Waiting for a Train"

All around the water tank waitin' for a train

A thousand miles away from home sleeping in the rain

I walked up to a brakeman just to give him a line of talk

He said if you've got money I'll see that you don't walk

Well I haven't got a nickel not a penny can I show

He said get off you railroad bum and he slammed the boxcar door

[Piano instrumental]

Well he put me off in Texas a place I dearly love

The wide open spaces all around me the moon and stars above

Nobody seems to want me nor to lend me a helping hand

I'm on my way from Frisco headin' back to Dixie Land

My pocketbook is empty my heart is willed with pain

I'm a thousand miles away from home just waitin' for a train
