Dickey Lee – Waiting For A Train lyrics

All around the water tank waitin' for a train
A thousand miles away from home sleeping in the rain
I walked up to the brakeman and 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 one penny can I show
Get off get off you railroad bum and he slammed that boxcar door (yodel)
[ dobro ]
He put me off in Texas a place I dearly love
Wide open spaces all around me and the moon and stars up above
Well nobody seems to want me nor to lend me a helping hand
I'm on my way from Frisco going back to Dixie Land
Though my pocketbook is empty and my heart is full of pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home waitin' for a train (yodel)
