lyrics

I rode down to Mechanicsburg on a cold and wintery day, and I heard a tramp by the railroad tracks and he had these words to say
"I worked fourty years as a fireman, boy, on the Pennsylvania line,
and I ended up just a derelict drinking Boone's Farm Apple Wine"

Where can a bum find bed and board? When you gonna make it stop rainin' lord?

I rode out of Mechanicsburg on a freight train half-mile long
But I still think back to the railroad track and that hobo's mournful song

Where can a bum find bed and board? When you gonna make it stop rainin' lord?
