Railroad Song Lyrics

I jumped off a boxcar down around Tennessee
I was cold tired and dirty hungry as I could be
But I had my guitar and a hundred railroad songs
So I asked the policeman
Can I stay here long
He said Mr. Hobo you got to go now
We don't want you around
See I'm trying to build me a respectable town
So we don't need a hobo like you hanging around

So I left that town, Lord with my guitar in my hand
Still cold and tired, kinda mad at the man
But this life that I chose to live, sometime's strange
See I'm trying to learn about the old music from ridin' the train
I'm a hobo I know, but that's the price I pay
Guess I'll write me another song while I'm on my way
I'm okay, get's me another train and this is what I'll say
Mr Choo-choo train, take me away
Choo-choo train

Well I'm goin' to ride this train Lord, until I find out
What Jimmie Rogers and the hag was all about
I play this rock 'n' roll, I think that's fine
But I like to go back 'lone, a little further in time
I'm a hobo I know but that's the price I pay
Guess I'll write me another song while I'm on my way, at home
Get me a great train, this is what I'll say
Mr Choo-choo train
Choo-choo train
