Maine Lumberjacks 103
5 "Tell my sweetheart back in Denver
That her fair face I no more will view; Tell her that IVe jumped the fast freight And that I am going through.
6 "Tell her not to weep for me,
In her eyes no tears must lurk, For I Ve gone to a better land, Where I won't have to work.
7 "Hark, I hear a whistle;
I must catch her on the fly. Farewell, partner, it's not So hard to die."
8 The Hobo stopped, his head fell back;
He had sung his last refrain. His partner swiped his hat and shoes , And jumped the east-bound train.
