This song was first released on the All Aboard! album. It is the only album it has been released on.
All around the water tower Waiting for a train A thousand miles away from home Sleeping in the rain I walked up to a brakeman Just to give him a line of talk He said if you’ve got money I’ll see that you don’t walk Well I haven’t got a nickel Not a penny can 1 show Get off, get off you railroad bum And he slammed that boxcar door
Well, 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 Nor to lend me a helping hand I’m on my way from Frisco Going back to Dixieland My pocketbook is empty My heart is full of pain I’m a thousand miles away from home Just waiting for a train
