    "Waiting For A Train" Lyrics

    Don Williams feat. Jimmie Rodgers


    All around the water tank
    Waitin' for a train
    A thousand miles away from home
    Sleepin' in the rain

    I walked up to a brakeman
    Just to give him a line of talk
    He says if you've got money boy
    I'll see that you don't walk

    Well I have'nt got a nickle
    Not a penny can I show
    Get off, get off you railroad bum
    And he slammed the boxcar door

    Well he put me off in Texas
    A state I dearly love
    The wide open spaces all around me
    The moon and the stars up above

    Nobody seems to want me
    Or to lend me a helping hand
    I'm on my way from 'Frisco
    Goin' back to Dixieland

    Oh my pocketbook is empty
    And my heart is full of pain
    I'm a thousand miles away from home
    Waitin' for a train
