Go to sleep you weary hobo
Let the towns drift slowly by
Listen to the steel rails hummin'
That's the hobo's lullaby

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Do not think 'bout tomorrow
Let tomorrow come and go
Tonight you're in a nice warm boxcar
Safe from all that wind and snow

I know the police cause you trouble
They cause trouble everywhere
But when you die and go to Heaven
You'll find no policemen there

So go to sleep you weary hobo
Let the towns drift slowly by
Listen to the steel rails hummin'
That's a hobo's lullaby

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    General CommentWoody, the last great traveling troubadour. Wonderful soothing song. Again Woody takes a shot at system in the last verse with the reference to the police. Brilliant piece of writing.
