The New Timer (Album Version) - Bruce Springsteen

He rode the rails since the Great Depression

 

Fifty years out on the skids

 

He said "You don't cross nobody

 

You'll be all right out here kid "

 

Left my family in Pennsylvania

 

Searchin' for work I hit the road

 

I met Frank in East Texas

 

In a freight yard blown through with snow

 

From New Mexico to Colorado

 

California to the sea

 

Frank he showed me the ropes sir

 

Just till I could get back on my feet

 

I hoed sugar beets outside of Firebaugh

 

I picked the peaches from the Marysville trees

 

They bunked us in a barn just like animals

 

Me and a hundred others just like me

 

We split up come the springtime

 

I never seen Frank again

 

'Cept one rainy night he blew by me on a grainer

 

Shouted my name and disappeared in the rain and wind

 

They found him shot dead outside of Stockton

 

His body lyin' on a muddy hill

 

Nothin' taken nothin' stolen

 

Somebody killin' just to kill

 

Late that summer I was rollin' through the plains of Texas

 

A vision passed before my eyes

 

A small house sittin' trackside

 

With the glow of the savior's beautiful light

 

A woman stood cookin' in the kitchen

 

Kid sat at a table with his old man

 

Now I wonder does my son miss me

 

Does he wonder where I am

 

Tonight I pick my campsite carefully

 

Outside the Sacramento yard

 

Gather some wood and light a fire

 

In the early winter dark

 

Wind whistling cold I pull my coat around me

 

Heat some coffee and stare out into the black night

 

I lie awake I lie awake sir

 

With my machete by my side

 

My Jesus your gracious love and mercy

 

Tonight I'm sorry could not fill my heart

Like one good rifle

 

And the name of who I ought to kill
