o to sleep you weary hobo
Can't you hear the steel rail humming

Let tomorrow come and go
Safe from all the wind and snow
I know the police cause you trouble
But when you die and go to heaven

And your hair is turning grey
You'll find happiness some day
So go to sleep you weary hobo
Don't you feel the steel rail humming
