Waiting for a Train (Poutníci)

Waiting for a Train Jimmie Rodgers / Poutníci All around the water tank waiting for a train A thousand miles away from home sleeping in the rain I walked up to a brakeman to give him a line of talk He said if you've got money boy I'll see that you don't walk I haven't got a nickel not a penny can I show He said get off get off you railroad bum and slammed the boxcar door 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 or to lend me a helping hand I'm on my way from Frisco going back to Dixie Land Though my pocketbook is empty and my heart is full of pain I'm a thousand miles away from home just a waiting for a train
