Hobo’s Lullaby

Santos Dumont, The Hobo’s Lullaby

Some classic Americana for a Saturday morning.

Hobo’s Lullaby

Go to sleep you weary hobo
Let the towns drift slowly by
Listen to the steel rails hummin’
That’s the hobo’s lullaby

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Do not think ‘bout tomorrow
Let tomorrow come and go
Tonight you’re in a nice warm boxcar
Safe from all that wind and snow

I know the police cause you trouble
They cause trouble everywhere
But when you die and go to Heaven
You’ll find no policemen there

So go to sleep you weary hobo
Let the towns drift slowly by
Listen to the steel rails hummin’
That’s a hobo’s lullaby

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
