Hey, go to sleep you weary hobo
Hey, let the towns go drifting by
Hey, can't you hear the steel rail humming?
Well, that's a hobo's lullaby

I know your clothes are torn and ragged
Hey, and your hair is turning gray
Hey, lift your head and smile at trouble
Hey, you'll find peace and rest some day

Now go to sleep you weary hobo
Hey, let the towns drift slowly by
Hey, can't you hear the steel rail humming?
Hey, that's a hobo's lullaby

My, don't you worry about tomorrow
Just let tomorrow come and go
'Cause tonight you're in a nice warm boxcar
Hey, safe from all that wind and snow

Now go to sleep you weary hobo
Hey, let the towns drift slowly by
Hey, can't you hear the steel rail humming?
Hey, that's a hobo's lullaby

Hey, I know police they cause you trouble
Hey, 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
Hey, let the towns drift slowly by
Hey, can't you hear the steel rail humming?
Hey, that's a hobo's lullaby

Hey, now go to sleep you weary hobo
Hey, let the towns drift slowly by
Can't you hear the steel rail humming?
Well, that's a hobo's lullaby
