Charles jacobie - Waiting for a train

All around the water tank
Waiting for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Sleeping in the rain

I walked up to the brakeman
To give him a line of talk
He said 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 dearly love
The wide open spaces all around me
The moon and stars up above

Nobody seemed to want me
Or lend me a helping hand
I'm on my way from 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 a waiting for a train
