Hobo s Lullaby chords
Arlo Guthrie (Goebel Reeves) to the tune of Just Before The Battle Mother by George F. Root 1862

Capo I *

G C  2x

G                     C
Go to sleep you weary hobo
D                          G
Let the towns drift slowly by
G                             C
Can't you hear the steel rail humming
D                    G
That's a hobo's lullaby

G                    C
Do not think about tomorrow
D                     G
Let tomorrow come and go
  G                           C
Tonight you're in a nice warm boxcar
D                          G
Safe from all the wind and snow

G                           C
I know the police cause you trouble
D                       G
They cause trouble everywhere
G                          C
But when you die and go to heaven
D                           G
You won't find no policemen there

G                                C
I know your clothes are torn and ragged
D                        G
And your hair is turning grey
G                           C
Lift your head and smile at trouble
D                          G
You'll find happiness some day

G                        C
So go to sleep you weary hobo
D                          G
Let the towns drift slowly by
G                             C
Don't you feel the steel rail humming
D                    G
That's a hobo's lullaby
