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
