Til The Boxcar Got Old (Larry W Jones 07/04/2019) (song #7550)
There’s an old wooden boxcar that’s left to rot away It’s one I rode the rails in back in the good old days The hobos were my neighbors and all of us rode free When that old boxcar was new it was something to see
I started out when I was young to see the whole world I saw the four winds blow and saw scenes of life unfurled Never owned no land and I never had any gold For forty long years I rode til the boxcar got old
I heard my Daddy say son there’s danger when alone I can see you’re restless and want to be on your own So I watched my back and survived where that boxcar rolled For forty long years I rode til the boxcar got old
Steel wheels on the boxcar and the wood was painted green Clicking and the clacking said it was no limousine But that was fine with me cause I never fit that mold For forty long years I rode til the boxcar got old
But that was fine with me cause I never fit that mold Iron rails I rode til I and that new boxcar got old
