hobo’s lulleby

Go to sleep you weary hobo    Let the towns drift slowly by
Can’t you hear the steel rails hummin’    That’s the hobo’s lullaby

Now don’t you worry ’bout tomorrow   Let tomorrow come and go
Tonight you’re in a nice warm boxcar   Safe from all that wind and snow

I know your clothes are torn and ragged   And your hair is turning gray
Lift your head and smile at trouble    You’ll find peace and rest someday

I know the police cause you trouble   They cause trouble everywhere
But when you die and go to Heaven   You’ll find no policemen there

So go to sleep you weary hobo   Let the towns drift slowly by
Listen to the steel rails hummin’   That’s a hobo’s lullaby
