Lonesome Joe
Recorded by Boxcar Willie
Written by Roy Acuff

C
There once lived a man he came from Mexico
G7 C
They called him poor hobo his name was Lonesome Joe

He would ride the blinds he’d ride the rods below
G7 C
The cinders from his freight scarred his face you know

F C
He knew every rail he knew every tie
F C G7
He knew every water tank that he passed by
C
And everywhere he went they called him poor hobo
G7 C
He lived a lonesome life his name was Lonesome Joe


He knew every house and he knew every door
G7 C
Where they would give a hand to a poor hobo

He would tip his hat in the nicest way
G7 C
And then he'd bow real low in the most graceful way

F C
He'd eat a country ham and he’d enjoy the fat
F C G7
He'd take a hard boiled egg and put it in his hat
C
He'd ask to mow your lawn in a tone of woe
G7 C
You know he'd never work this lonesome poor hobo


His shoes were always worn sometimes they wouldn't match
G7 C
His hat was always flopped his clothes were always patched

He had the finest watch on the finest chain
G7 C
He'd keep the closest time on the fastest train

F C
I've seen him catch a freight the best in the land
F C G7
I've seen him grab a train with a sandwich in his hand
C
He saw all the world but never made no dough
G7 C
And died a happy man his name was Lonesome Joe
