THE PULLMAN BOX CAR
Tune-"Court House in Do Sky."
Composed by Chas. H. Rabrich.

I am a railroad beat, I can bum as well as eat.
Through the country I have wandered near and far;
I went from bad to worse, from there to Syracuse,
I then began to travel in a pullman box car,
I then began to travel in a pullman box car.

Much nerve I have, 'tis true, which I need to take me through;
I can bribe a "brakie" with a mild cigar.
But boys a warning take or else your necks you'll break,
When looking for a birth in a pullman box car,
When looking for a birth in a pullman box car.

I take a side-door sleeper, because, you see, it's cheaper
Than to pay my fare just like a lardy-dar.
And when I have the stuff choice havanas I do puff,
And am happy when I travel in a pullman box car.
And am happy when I travel in a pullman box car.

Many cons have gone insane, they have laid for me in vain.
Strange to say, I have escaped without a scar;
Soon my journeys will be o'er, then I'll beat my way no more,
I will bid adieu forever to the pullman box car,
I will bid adieu forever to the pullman box car.
