HOBO JOE

Music and lyrics by Larry Luvaul
5/18/2009

Verse 1                                             
G              D               C                      G
Joe tells stories to the children as he waits by the track
              D                C            G
I must leave soon, don't know when I'll be back.
            D             C             G     Em        G
Kids gather laughing, and calling Joe's name, hey Hobo Joe.
            D                C           G
With a bag on his back and a sign in his hand
               D                 C                G
Will work for food, I can clear your land as best as I can. 

Verse2
       D                     C                  G
Joe's old friends were many now they've nearly disappeared.
     D                  C              G
Now Joe rides in God's shadow without any fear.
            D                C            G
Depression brings new faces for Joe to remember.
           D                  C                      G
Frail and weak from age, Joe still laughs and spins his tales,
        D                C                 G
How he was saved from a blizzard while riding the rails.

Chorus:  
Em     D                  C        G
Hobo Joe, where will you sleep tonight.
Em     D                  C      G
Hobo Joe, where will you eat tonight.
     Em        D                C             G
You ride the rails and of your friends weave tales.
Am           D                  C        G
Stars in the night are your blankets delight.
Em    D    C   G                   D        G
Hobo Joe, Hobo Joe, where will you go from here.

Verse3
    G              D                   C         G
No regrets and no worries, Joe's aging eyes can see.
             D             C          G
He was free to go  or stay as he pleases.
           D               C                  G
Now he forgets time and places as his story progresses.
        D               C                  G
Joe's limo was a chain of rail cars on the Santa-Fe
   D             C                      G
In a box car of hay, Joe died where he lay. 

Verse 4
               D                   C               G                    
No one mourns for Joe, they just repeat his tall tales,
        D              C           G
As he takes his final ride on the rails.
              D                     C                G
Kids played hobo, while the steel rails sings Joe's blues.
          D                   C                   G
His hobo friends stand by the track and tip their hat 
                D                C         G
As Joe's train goes by singing clickety clack.

Chorus:
Em     D                  C        G
Hobo Joe, where will you sleep tonight.
Em     D                  C      G
Hobo Joe, where will you eat tonight.
     Em        D                 C         G
You ride the rails and your friends weave tales.
Am           D                  C        G
Stars in the night are your blankets delight.
Em    D    C   G                   D        G
Hobo Joe, Hobo Joe, where will you go from here.
