Thread Name: will there be no _____ in heaven (songs)
Subject: Lyr Add: HOBO'S MEDITATION (Jimmie Rodgers)
Written by Jimmie Rodgers Copyright BMI 1933. "Hobo's Meditation" is the song.


Tonight as I lay on a boxcar
Just waiting for a train to pass by
What will become of the Hobo
Whenever their time comes to die

There's a Master up yonder in Heaven
Got a place that we might call our home
Will we have to work for a living
Or can we continue to roam
Extended yodeling here

Will there be any freight trains in Heaven
Any boxcars in which we might hide
Will there be any tough cops and brakemen
Will they tell us we cannot ride
Will the Hobo ride with the rich man
Will he always have money to spare
Will they ahve respect for the Hobo
In the land that lies hidden up there?

Yodel ay e HOOO
