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
