Waiting For A Train Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: All Aboard

This song was first released on the All Aboard! album. It is the only album it has been released on.

All around the water tower
Waiting for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Sleeping in the rain I walked up to a brakeman
Just to give him a line of talk
He said if youve got money
Ill see that you dont walk
Well I havent got a nickel
Not a penny can 1 show
Get off, get off you railroad bum
And he slammed that boxcar door

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
Nor to lend me a helping hand
Im on my way from Frisco
Going back to Dixieland
My pocketbook is empty
My heart is full of pain
Im a thousand miles away from home
Just waiting for a train

Words and music by Jimmie Rodgers
