Waiting For a Train - lyrics

Show song Facebook

All around the water tank,
Waiting for a train.
A thousand miles away from home,
Sleeping in the rain.
I walked up to the brakeman,
Gave him a line of talk.
Says if you've got your money,
I'll see that you don't walk.
Well I haven't got a nickel,
Not a penny I could show.
Said: "Get off ! Get off ! You railroad bum",
And he slammed the boxcar door.
He brought me up in Texas,
That's the place I love.
Wide open spaces all around me,
Moon and stars above.
Nobody seems to want me,
Oh lend me a helping hand.
I'm on my way from Frisco,
Going back to Dixieland.
But my pocket book is empty,
And my heart is filedl with pain.
I'm a thousand miles away from you,
Just waiting for a train.
