Merle Haggard – Waiting For A Train lyrics

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

I walked up to a brake-man
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
"Get off, get off, you railroad bum"
And he slammed that boxcar door

He put me off in Texas
The place I dearly love
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
I'm going back to Dixieland

Though my pocketbook is empty
And my heart is full of pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home
Waiting for a train

Nobody seemed to want me
Or lend me a helping hand
I'm on my way from Frisco
I'm going back to Dixieland

Though my pocketbook is empty
And my heart is full of pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home
Waiting for a train
