Hobo’s Meditation By Merle Haggard written by Jimmie Rodgers [3/4 time]
C G7 C Tonight as I lay on a boxcar F C Just waiting for a train to pass by F C What will become of the hobo D7 G7 Whenever that time comes to die
C G7 C Has the Master up yonder in heaven F C Got a place that we might call our home F C 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 F C Any boxcars in which we might hide F C 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 F C Will they have respect for a hobo G7 C In the land that lies hidden up there
Repeat #3 & 4
