Waiting For A Train Lyrics

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 to give him a line of talk

He says, "If you've got money I'll see that you don't walk
I haven't got a nickel, not a penny can I show"
He said, "Get off you railroad bum", and slammed the boxcar door

He put me off in Texas, a place I truly love
Wide open spaces 'round me, the moon and stars above
Nobody seems to want me or to lend me a helping hand

I'm on my way to Frisco going back to Dixie Land
My pocketbook is empty and my heart is filled with pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home just waitin' for a train
