Hobo’s Meditation
By Merle Haggard written by Jimmie Rodgers [3/4 time]

C G7 C
Tonight as I lay on a boxcar
Just waiting for a train to pass by
What will become of the hobo
D7 G7
Whenever that time comes to die

C G7 C
Has the Master up yonder in heaven
Got a place that we might call our home
Will we have to work for a living
D7 G7 C
Or can we continue to roam

G7 C
Will there be any freight trains in heaven
Any boxcars in which we might hide
Will there be any tough cops and brakemen
D7 G7
Will they tell us we cannot ride

C G7 C
Will the hobo chum with the rich man
F E7
Will we always have money to spare
Will they have respect for a hobo
G7 C
In the land that lies hidden up there

Repeat #3 & 4
