Waiting for a Train

Lyrics

Waiting for a Train - Jimmie Rodgers

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

 

Just to give him a line of talk

 

He said If you got money boy

Ill see that you dont walk

 

I havent got a nickel

 

Not a penny can I show

 

Get off get off you railroad bum

 

And 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 the stars up above

 

Nobody seems to want me

 

Or lend me a helping hand

 

Im on my way from Frisco

 

Going back to Dixieland

 

My pocket book is empty and my heart is full of pain

 

Im a thousand miles away from home

 

Just waiting for a train
