Lyrics from Riverboat Annie Mud Cat


Men All Want to Be Hobos


   D
She needs a man to hold her hand

and love her tender care

He wants to know when he comes and goes
        G                 D
that she will stay right there
    G
He really wants to be a hobo
                     D
the road he wants to fill
   D             
While she stays home and bakes the pies   
          A                    D
and leaves them on the windowsill

    D
Shes a faithful wife and she gives her life
          G              D
and will die for just one man
                                     
while a rambler tries to be a gambler
       G                     D
and love as many women as he can
     G                            
and so he flows and rows and grows
                  D
to know a hobos cure

But a hobos cure is a woman's lure
       A              D
that pie on the windowsill

        G               D
She gives to him and he receives
        G              D      
They love and then he leaves
        G                 D         
He lies and cries and says goodby
     E7                 A
Little darling don't you grieve
    D                     
So he roams and she stays home
        G                D
and does what a woman will
                                 
dries her eyes and bakes her pies
           A                  D
and leaves them on the windowsill

                                   
She gives to him and he receives
       G               D
they love and then he leaves

He lies and cries and says goodbye
  E7                    A
little darling don't you grieve

   D
So he roams and she stays home
          G            D
and does what a woman will

dries her eyes and bakes her pies
           A                  D
and leaves them on the windowsill
