lyrics

ON THE MILKRUN TRAIN

Oh I’d like to say that I’m on my way headin’ south on the mikrun train
If yesterday’s life is a hobo’s life, then I want it to stay the same
I paid my dues and wore out my walkin’ shoes
Will I make it back again

‘Cause a way down south I got me a claim
A little piece of land in my daddy’s name
I wanna go back from where I came
To spread my ashes in the wind and the rain

I’ll lie in the cold ‘till the mornin’ after outside some motel room
I’ll cover my head with a newspaper bed
and I hope I getta warm real soon
I’m a ramblin’ man and I’ll live if I can long before the time I’m dead

‘Cause a way down south…

Runnin’ in the mornin’ catchin’ wind to catch a ride
10:30 train whistle blowin’ outside
Hoppin’ on a cattle car wonderin’ where to hide’
Lookin down to the town, waving goodbye
Oh I wanna go back from where I came
Train whistle track will take me there again

Oh I’ll drift on down to the heart of the land
Don’t know a better way to go
None of that talk about all the hard luck, it’s good for the inner soul
I’ll be movin’ on down from town to town, I’m as lucky as a man can be

‘Cause a way down south I got me a claim
I've done a full circle on the railway chain
I wanna go back from where I came
To spread my ashes in the wind and the rain
