    (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 said if you've got money
    I'll see that you don't walk.

    I haven't got a nickel
    Not a penny can I show
    Get off, get off, you railroad bum
    He slammed the boxcar door.

    --- Instrumental ---

    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
    Or lend me a helping hand
    I'm on my way from Frisco
    Goin' back to Dixie Land.

    My pocketbook is empty
    My heart is full of pain
    I'm a thousand miles away from home
    Waitin' for a train...
