Waiting For A Train  Jimmie Rodgers

[A]All around t[E7]he water tank,[A] waiti[A7]ng for [D]a train [D#dim]        [A]    [A7]
A [E9]thou[E7]sand miles away from home, sleeping in the rain
I walk up to the brakeman, and give him line of talk

He says if you've got the money, I'll see that you don't walk

I haven't got a nickel, not a penny can I show

[E7]Get off get[A] of[E7]f yo[A]u railroad bum, he slammed the boxcar door

He put me off in Texas, a state I dearly love

The wide open spaces around me, the moon and stars up above

Nobody seems to want me, or lend me a helping hand

I am on my way from 'frisco, I am going to dixieland

Though my pocketbook is empty, and my heart is full of pain

I am a thousand miles away from home just waiting for a train
