Waiting for a Train recorded by Johnny Cash written by Jimmie Rodgers
G7 C C7
F Fm C All around the water tank waiting for a train
G7 A thousand miles away from home sleeping in the rain
Fm C I walked up to a brakeman just to give him a line of talk
G7 He said if you've got money I'll see that you don't walk C
F E7 Well I haven't got a nickel not a penny can I show
G7 C He said get off you railroad bum and he slammed the boxcar door G7
C C7 F
Fm C Well he put me off in Texas a place I dearly love
G7 The wide open spaces all around me the moon and stars above C
Fm C Nobody seems to want me nor to lend me a helping hand
D7 G7 I'm on my way from Frisco heading back to Dixie Land C
G7 C C7
E7 My pocketbook is empty my heart is willed with pain
G7 C I'm a thousand miles away from home just waiting for a train
