Poor Boy Lyrics

Artist: Woody Guthrie
Album: Poor Boy

Well I walked down to the railroad yard
T' watch a train roll by
Knew the train would roll that day
But I did not know what time

No I did not know what time, poor boy
Did not know what time
I knew the train would run that day
But I did not know what time

"Good morning Mr. Railroad Man
What time does your train roll by?"
"Nine-sixteen n' two-forty-four,
twenty-five minutes 'til five."

At nine-sixteen, two-forty-four,
twenty-five minutes 'til five.
"Thank you Mr. Railroad Man
I wanna watch your train roll by."

I'm standing on a platform
Smoking a big cigar
Waiting for some old freight train
Carrying an empty car

I rode her down to Danville town
Got stuck on a Danville girl
You bet your life she was a pearl
She wore that Danville curl

She wore her hat on the back of her head
Like high told people all do
The very next train come down that track
Well I bid that gal adieu

I bid that gal adieu, poor boys
An' I bid that gal adieu
The very next train come down that track
Well I bid that gal adieu
