Roy Drusky — Waiting For A Train lyrics

All around the water tank waitin' for a train
A thousand miles away from home sleeping in the rain
I walked up to a brakeman to give him a line of talk
He says if you've got money I'll see that you don't walk
I haven't got a nickel not a penny can I show
He said get off you railroad bum and slammed the boxcar door
[ steel ]
He put me off in Texas a place I truly love
Wide open spaces round me the moon and stars above
Nobody seems to want me or to lend me a helping hand
I'm on my way to Frisco going back to Dixie Land
My pocketbook is empty and my heart is filled with pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home just waitin' for a train
