Hobos Lullabye

Goebel Reeves

[E]Go to sleep you weary [A]hobo 

[B7]Let the towns drift slowly [E]by

Can’t you hear the steel rails hum[A]ming? 

[B7]That’s a hobo’s lulla[E]by


[E]Do not think about to[A]morrow

[B7]Let tomorrow come and [E]go

Tonight you´re in a nice warm [A]boxcar

[B7]Safe from all the wind and [E]snow


[E]I know the breakmen cause you [A]trouble

[B7]They cause trouble every[E]where 

But when you die and go to [A]heaven

[B7]You will find no breakmen [E]there


[E]I know your clothes are torn and [A]ragged

[B7]And your hair is turning [E]grey

Lift your head and smile at [A]trouble

[B7]You’ll find peace and rest some [E]day.
