"Hobo Jo and the train" (Song)



"Hobo Jo and the train"



My name is Hobo Jo and I’m tryin’ to hitch a ride
It’s cold and it’s dreary with my bindle by my side
I’m just a little Hobo and I’m tryin to make my way
Goin’ here or goin’ there, I jump the train each day



Chorus
Here I am a Hobo here I am a Hobo
Guitar on my shoulder just to sing you a tune
I sing in the rain and I sing in the sun
I have to make some money as I’m always on the run




I’m a Hobo, I’m a runnin’, and I always take the train
It keeps me warm and dry gets me out of the rain
It takes me where I want to go, goin’ east or west
I know I’m headed somewhere just not sure where it is



Chorus
Here I am a Hobo here I am a Hobo
Guitar on my shoulder just to sing you a tune
I sing in the rain and I sing in the sun
I have to make some money as I’m always on the run




I’m penniless but work real hard forever have to roam
I’m always on the go, as I don’t have a home
I go from place to place and I try to settle down
I travel through the country, just goin’ from town to town



Chorus
Here I am a Hobo here I am a Hobo
Guitar on my shoulder just to sing you a tune
I sing in the rain and I sing in the sun
I have to make some money as I’m always on the run




They call me Hobo Jo as I jump from train to train
I want to get to somewhere regardless of terrain
I’m tired and I’m weary as I go from day to day
I cannot face the world no more that’s why I run away



Chorus
Here I am a Hobo here I am a Hobo
Guitar on my shoulder just to sing you a tune
I sing in the rain and I sing in the sun
I have to make some money as I’m always on the run(X2)
