K:G Just a [G]Mile west of the water tank, one [C]Cold November day, In-Side an empty [G]boxcar, a [D]Dying hobo lay. His [G]Pal was standing 'fore him, with a [C]Low and drooping head, Listening to the [G]last words, the [D7]Dying hobo [G]said. [G]"So long, partner hobo, I [C]Hate to say goodbye, I Hear my train a-[G]coming, I [D]Know she's getting nigh. [G]Tell the old conductor just [C]Where I want to stop, Where the Little stream of [G]whiskey comes [D7]Flowing down the [G]rocks. [G]"Tell my girl in Danville In her [C]Eyes no tears must lurk. For I am just a-[G]going where [D] I won't have to work. I [G]Will not have to work at all, nor [C]Even change my socks, Where the Little stream of [G]whiskey, comes [D7]Flowing down the [G]rocks. "I'm [G]Going to a better place, where [C]Everything is bright, Where Handouts grow on [G]bushes, you can [D]Sleep out every night. Where [G] I won't have to work at all, not [C]Even change my socks, Where the Little stream of [G]whiskey, comes [D7]Flowing down the [G]rocks. [G]"Hark! I hear her whistle! I must [C]Flip her on the fly! Good-Bye, old pal," he [G]murmured, "I'm [D]Not afraid to die." His [G]Head fell back, his eyes grew dim, He had [C]Sung his last refrain. His Partner swiped his [G]coat and hat, And [D7]Hopped an eastbound [G]train.
