Hobo's mandolin (Tom Rush)

This hear mandolin, was carved out of pine Was willed to me by an old hobo, way down the line He donated this mandolin, with these last words before I pass over boy, I'll show you some cords

This hear mandolin made out of earth and of stone The sound of the railroad makes you feel all alone This hear mandolin'll take a hobo back home

This hear mandolin, is sure full of sand It'll play out of tune, if there's a cop on the train She'll sing you the song of the super chief, out of ST. Paul And that ain't all

This hear mandolin, makes a young girl open up her window Like a warm bed on a rainy night, like a hex sign on a barn This hear mandolin, will keep a hobo from harm

repeat first verse

This hear mandolin's made out of barns and old water tanks If the juke box is busted and you need an old song This hear mandolin'll take a hobo back home

Couldn't find this on the web anywere. I thought of posting a request hear, but I figured I could transcribe it as easly as the next guy. I got it off The Best Of Tom Rush album. One of many Tom Rush songs that really grab me.
