Bummin' an old freight train

    Bummin' an old freight train, oh Lord
    Bummin' an old freight train
    A thousand miles away from home
    Just a Bummin' an old freight train

I was a wild and reckless hobo, left my happy home
Started out on a western trip all by myself alone
My pocketbook was empty and my heart was filled with pain
A thousand miles away from homejust a Bummin' an old freight train

 * Refrain

I was standing on a platform smokin' a cheap cigar
Waitin' for an old freight train to catch an empty car
My pocketbook was empty, my heart was filled with pain
A thousand miles away from home just a Bummin' an old freight train

 * Refrain

I pulled my cap down over my eyes, I walked up to the train
Caught the stirrup of a sleepin' car and never did look back
A thousand miles away from home just a Bummin' an old freight train

 * Refrain
