hobo’s lullaby lyrics – c.w. mccall

(goebel reeves)

go to sleep, you weary hobo
let the towns drift slowly by
can’t you hear the steel rail hummin’?
that’s a hobo’s lullaby

do not think about tomorrow
let tomorrow come and go
tonight you’re in a nice warm boxcar
safe from the all the wind and snow

i know your clothes are torn and ragged
and your hair is turnin’ gray
lift your head and smile at trouble
you’ll find happiness someday

/ c w mccall lyrics
