I rode down to Mechanicsburg
On a cold and wintery day
And I heard a tramp by the railroad tracks
And he had these words to say:

"I worked forty years as a fireman, boy
On the Pennsylvania line
And I ended up as a derelict
Drinkin' Boone's Farm apple wine

Oh where can a bum find bed and board?
When you gonna make it stop rainin' lord?
Where can a bum find bed and board?
When you gonna make it stop rainin' lord?"

I rode out of Mechanicsburg
On a freight train a half mile long
But I still think back to the railroad track
And that hobo's mournful song:

Oh where can a bum find bed and board?
When you gonna make it stop rainin' lord?
Where can a bum find bed and board?
When you gonna make it stop rainin' lord?"
Singin'
"Oh where can a bum find bed and board?
When you gonna make it stop rainin' lord?
Where can a bum find bed and board?
When you gonna make it stop rainin' lord?
When you gonna make it stop rainin' lord?
