[Verse 1]
    F                     Bb             F
The wild western hobo who left his happy home
F                               C           F
Started upon a western trip all by himself alone
F                      Bb                    F
Upon this western trip going to have lots of fun
F                               C              F
But upon this western trip this is the song he sung

F                     Bb          F         C           F 
Ee ode layee oh de layee ay oh de layee ode layee oh de layee

F  Bb  F   C   F

[Verse 2] 
    F                      Bb                F
I stepped up on a platform smoking a cheap cigar
F                                   C              F
Waiting to catch a freight train to catch an empty car
  F                               Bb                 F
I buttoned my coat up closely and walked on down the track
  F                                   C              F
I caught the steps of a sleeper car I never did look back

F                     Bb          F         C           F 
Ee ode layee oh de layee ay oh de layee ode layee oh de layee

F  Bb  F   C   F

   F                       Bb                   F
My pocket book is empty my heart is filled with pain
    F                               C                     F
Ten thousand miles away from home hoboing an old freight train
       F             C         F 
Aye oh layee  Aye oh layee  oh layee
