Billy Walker – Waiting For A Train lyrics

All around the water tank waiting for a train
A thousand miles away from home standing in the rain
I walked up to a brakeman to hand him a line of talk
He says if you've got money Bill I'll see that you don't walk
I haven't got a nickel not a penny can I show
Get off get off you railroad bum and he slammed the boxcar door

He put me off in Texas a state I dearly love
The wide open spaces all around me the moon and stars above
Nobody seems to want me or lend me a helping hand
I'm on my way from Frisco going back to Dixieland
My pocketbook is empty and my heart is full of pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home just a waiting for a train
