Waiting For A Train


Boz Scaggs



All around the water tank
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 says if you've got the 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
He slammed the boxcar door

Yodel ay-eee ay-eee yodel ay-eee

He put me off in Texas
A State I dearly love
The wide open spaces all around me
The moon and stars up above

Nobody seems to want me
Or lend me a helping hand
I'm on my way from 'Frisco
I'm goin' to Dixieland

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

Yodel-ay-eee ay-eee yodel-ay-eee
