about

Traditional Lullabye originally written by Goebel Reeves and widely performed by Woody Guthrie.

lyrics

Go to sleep you weary hobo
Let the towns drift slowly by
Listen to the steel rails humming
That's a hobo's lullaby

Do not thing about tomorrow
Let tomorrow come and go
Tonight you've got a nice warm box car
Safe from all this wind and snow

I know the police cause you trouble
They cause trouble everywhere
When you die and go to heaven
You'll find no policemen there

So go to sleep you weary hobo
Let the towns drift slowly by
Listen to the steel rails humming
That's a hobos lullaby
