    Lyrics

    Rambling Hobo
    Doc Watson

    Just a mile west of the water tank
    on a cold November day.
    In a cold and lonesome box car
    A dyin hobo lay

    His pal sat there before him
    with a low and drooping head
    listening to the last words
    his dying buddy said

    Goodbye old pardner hobo
    I hate to say goodbye
    but I hear my train a comin
    & I know shes getting nigh

    Gonna tell that old conductor
    Just when I'm gonna stop
    Where the little stream of water
    comes tumblin down the rock

    We rode the rocks together
    we rambled all around
    In every kind of weather

    we slept out on the ground

    Oh pardner don't you miss that train
    that always makes a stop
    where the little stream of water
    comes tumblin down the rock

    Would you tell my girl from Danville
    that she need not worry a tall
    I'm a goin to that country
    where I won't have to work at all

    No I wll not have to work there
    or never change my socks
    where the little stream of water
    comes tumblin down the rocks

    I'm a goin to that better place
    where everything is right
    Where handouts grow on bushes
    and they sleep out every night

    I won't have to wash my overhauls
    or never change my socks
    Where the little stream of water
    Comes tumblin down the rocks
