All around the water tank
Waitin' for a train
I'm a thousand miles away from home
Sleeping in the rain
I walked up to a brakeman
Just to make a line of talk
He said, "Son if you've got money"
"I'll see that you don't walk"
Well, I haven't got a nickel
Not a penny can I show
Well, get off, get off, you railroad bum
He slammed the boxcar door
Well, he put me off in Texas
A state I dearly love
Wide open spaces all around me, Lord
The moon and stars above
My pocketbook is empty
My old heart is filled with pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home
And I'm waitin' for a train
