Old Boxcars Roll To Places New (Larry W Jones 8/16/2018) (song #7283)

Well, this ain’t no passenger train
Just an old boxcar on the main
I’ve been riding it through the night
Be somewhere new at morning light

I’ve seen cities, I’ve been around
I’ve seen pitiful run down towns
And most I’ll never return to
Old boxcars roll to places new

I’ve seen bald eagles flying high
I’ve heard hoot owls hoot in the night
I’ve made some friends black, white and red
A hobo village for my head

(Instrumental)

I’ve seen cities, I’ve been around
I’ve seen pitiful run down towns
And most I’ll never return to
Old boxcars roll to places new

And most I’ll never return to
Old boxcars roll to places new
