Jorma Kaukonen – Waiting For A Train lyrics

All around the water tower
Waiting for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Sleeping in the rain
I walked up to a brakeman
To give him a line of talk
He said if you've got money
You won't have to walk
Well, I haven't got a nickel
Not a penny can I show
Get off, get off you railroad bum
And he slammed that boxcar door

Well, he put me off in Texas
A state I dearly love
Wide open spaces all around me
The moon and stars up above
Nobody seems to want me
Or give me a helping hand
I'm on my way from Frisco
Going back to Dixieland
My pocketbook is empty
An' my heart is full of pain
A thousand miles away from home
Waiting for a train

I'm a thousand miles away from home
Waiting for a train
