All around the water tank a waitin' for a train
I'm a thousand miles away from home sleeping in the rain
I walked up to the brakeman just to give him a line of talk

But he said if you've got money I'll see that you don't walk
Well I haven't got a nickel not one penny can I show
Get off get off you railroad bum and he slammed the boxcar door

They put me off in Texas a place I dearly love
The wide open spaces all around me and the moon and stars above
Nobody seems to want me nor to lend me a helping hand

I'm on my way from Frisco going back to Dixie Land
Yes my pocketbook is empty and my heart is filled with pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home just a waitin' for a train (yodel)
