The Hobo's Last Ride
Recorded by Hank Snow
Written by Norman Blake and Nancy Blake

C F C
One dark and stormy night while riding down the line
F C D7 G7
Railroad Bill the engineer said boy we'll have to fly
C F C F C
We've got to be on time to meet old Number Four
F C G7 C
So sling the coal we'll make it boy or never ride no more

F C
While in the rear boxcar a lonely hobo lay
F C D7 G7
Heading for his mother dear who on her death-bed lay
C F C F C
He raised a weary hand to brush away a tear
F C G7 C
Not knowing his last drive was run and fate was drawing near

F C
When through the darkened night a headlight bright did gleam
F C D7 G7
Above the roar of rolling wheels a whistle loud did scream
C F C F C
As down around the curve the mighty train did roar
F C G7 C
With black smoke rolling from the stack came Flyer Number Four

F C
Then came an awful crash their last long drive was run
F C D7 G7
There on the track the hobo lay his days of life were done
C F C F C
And as the golden sun sank slowly to the west
F C G7 C
His dear old mother gently smiled and closed her eyes in death
