VERSE:
[D]He rode the rails since the Great Depression
Fifty years out on the sk[A]ids
He said "You don't cross nobody
You'll be all right out here k[D]id."
VERSE:
[D]Left my family in Pennsylvania
Searchin' for work I hit the r[A]oad
I met Frank in East Texas
In a freight yard blown through with s[D]now
VERSE:
[D]From Mexico to Colorado
California to the s[A]ea
Frank he showed me the ropes sir
Just till I could get back on my f[D]eet
VERSE:
[D]I hoed sugar beets outside of Firebaugh
I picked the peaches from the Marysville tr[A]ees
They bunked us in a barn just like animals
Me and a hundred others just like [D]me

VERSE:
[D]We split up come the springtime
I never seen Frank ag[A]ain
'Cept one rainy night he blew by me on a grainer
Shouted my name and disappeared in the rain and w[D]ind
VERSE:
[D]They found him shot dead outside of Stockton
His body lyin' on a muddy h[A]ill
Nothin' taken, nothin' stolen
Somebody killin' just to k[D]ill

BREAK:
[D]Late that su[A]mmer I was rollin' through the plains of Te[D]xas
A vision pa[G]ssed before my e[D]yes
A small ho[A]use sittin' tra[D]ckside
With the g[A]low of the savior's beautiful l[D]ight
[D]A woman stood c[A]ookin' in the kitc[D]hen
Kid sat at a ta[G]ble with his old m[D]an
Now I w[A]onder does my son m[D]iss me
Does he w[A]onder where I a[D]m

VERSE:
[D]Tonight I pick my campsite carefully
Outside the Sacramento y[A]ard
Gather some wood and light a fire
In the early winter d[D]ark
VERSE:
[D]Wind whistling cold I pull my coat around me
Heat some coffee and stare out into the black n[A]ight
I lie awake I lie awake sir
With my machete by my s[D]ide
VERSE:
My Jesus your gracious love and mercy
Tonight I'm sorry could not f[A]ill
My heart Like one good rifle
And the name of who I ought to k[D]ill
