Only a Hobo

G                           C          G
As I was out walkin' on the corner one day

G                                      D
I spied an old hobo, in the doorway he lay

G                                C             G
His face was all grounded in the cold sidewalk floor

G                                   D              G
An' I guess he'd been there for the whole night or more

C                G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone

G                              D
Leaving nobody to sing his sad song

G                 C         G
Leaving nobody to carry him home

G                       D           G
He was only a hobo, but one more is gone

A blanket of newspaper covered his head
As the step was his pillow, the street was his bed
One look at his face showed the hard road he'd come
An' a fistful of coins showed the money he'd bummed

He was only a hobo, but one more is gone
Leaving nobody to sing his sad song
Leaving nobody to carry him home
He was only a hobo, but one more is gone

Does it take much of a man to see his whole life go down
To look up in the world from a whole in the ground
To wait for your future like a horse that's gone lame
To lie in the gutter and die with no name

He was only a hobo, but one more is gone
Leaving nobody to sing his sad song
Leaving nobody to carry him home
He was only a hobo, but one more is gone
