      About "The Hobo Song"

      Lyrics for John Prine - "The Hobo Song"

      There was a time
      When lonely men would wander
      Through this land
      Rolling aimlessly along
      So many times
      I've heard of their sad story
      Written in the words
      Of dead men's songs.

      Down through the years
      Many men have yearned
      For freedom
      Some found it
      Only on the open road
      So many tears of blood
      Have fell around us
      'cause you can't always do what you are told.

      Please tell me where
      Have all the hobos gone to
      I see no fire burning down
      By the rusty railroad track
      Could it be that time
      Has gone and left them
      Tied up in life's eternal traveling sack.

      Last Sunday night
      I wrote a letter
      To my loved one
      I signed my name
      And knew I'd stayed away
      Too long
      There was a time
      When my heart was free to wander
      And I remember as I sing
      This hobo song.
