VERSE:
D
He rode the rails since the Great Depression
                         A
Fifty years out on the skids
He said "You don't cross nobody
                              D
You'll be all right out here kid."

VERSE:
D
Left my family in Pennsylvania
                              A
Searchin' for work I hit the road
I met Frank in East Texas
                                      D
In a freight yard blown through with snow

VERSE:
D
From Mexico to Colorado
                   A
California to the sea
Frank he showed me the ropes sir
                                  D
Just till I could get back on my feet

VERSE:
D
I hoed sugar beets outside of Firebaugh
                                           A
I picked the peaches from the Marysville trees
They bunked us in a barn just like animals
                                  D
Me and a hundred others just like me

VERSE:
D
We split up come the springtime
                     A
I never seen Frank again
'Cept one rainy night he blew by me on a grainer
                                                 D
Shouted my name and disappeared in the rain and wind

VERSE:
D
They found him shot dead outside of Stockton
                           A
His body lyin' on a muddy hill
Nothin' taken, nothin' stolen
                          D
Somebody killin' just to kill

BREAK:
D           A                                          D
Late that summer I was rollin' through the plains of Texas
           G               D
A vision passed before my eyes
          A              D
A small house sittin' trackside
          A                              D
With the glow of the savior's beautiful light

D              A                 D
A woman stood cookin' in the kitchen
               G                 D
Kid sat at a table with his old man
       A                  D
Now I wonder does my son miss me
         A              D
Does he wonder where I am

VERSE:
D
Tonight I pick my campsite carefully
                        A
Outside the Sacramento yard
Gather some wood and light a fire
                     D
In the early winter dark

VERSE:
D
Wind whistling cold I pull my coat around me
                                               A
Heat some coffee and stare out into the black night
I lie awake I lie awake sir
                       D
With my machete by my side

VERSE:
My Jesus your gracious love and mercy
                             A
Tonight I'm sorry could not fill
My heart Like one good rifle
                                D
And the name of who I ought to kill
