Banjo tuned E capo 1, Key D

     D                          A          D
Behind a Western water tank a dying hobo lay,                        

                             E7            A
Inside an empty box-car, one cold November day ;
    D                           A                D
His comrade sat beside him with low and drooping head,
                            A                     D
Listening to the dying words this poor dying hobo said.
          D                A                      D
"I am going to a better land, where everything is bright
                A         D                 A              D
Where hand-outs grow on bushes, and you can sleep out every night.
               A          D              A         D
Tell my sweetheart back in Denver no more her face I'll view
                          A                        D
For I have caught the fast train and now I'm going through."

                A         D              A              D
"Tell her not to weep for me, no tears in her eyes must lurk,
                                        E7           A
For I have gone to a land where hoboes don't have to work,
     D                 A                                D
Don't have to work at all, not even have to change your socks
                        A                           D
Where little streams of alcohol come tingling down the rocks.

                       A                            D
"Hark! I hear the whistling; I must catch her on the fly
                               E7                 A
Just one drink of 9-5 booze -it 's not so hard to die."
    D                        A    
His voice grew weak, his head fell back, he 's sung his last
                A              D           A                  D
His partner swiped his coat and hat and caught the east-bound train.
  A       D
Ahhhha   Men
