Lyrics THE RAILROAD
DON'T GO THERE,
AIRPLANES
DON'T GO THERE,
GREYHOUND
DON'T GO THERE,
ANYWHERE
NEAR THERE.
THAT MEAN
I GOTTA WALK,
GOTTA STICK OUT
MY THUMB.
BUT THE FOLKS
'ROUND THESE HERE PARTS,
CHILD,
THEY DON'T FIGURE
NO WALKIN' BUM.

MY BABY
SENT ME THERE,
I DIDN'T
WANNA GO THERE,
SAID I'D FIND
SOME WORK THERE,
OR SOMEWHERE
NEAR THERE.
I DIDN'T
GET NO JOB,
NO I DIDN'T
GET NONE.
BUT I'M ON THIS
HIGHWAY,
I AIN'T NOTHIN'
BUT A WALKIN' BUM.

I'M A-WALKIN'
IN THE RAIN,
AND I'M A-WALKIN'
IN THE SUN,
BUT I AIN'T
GOT NO CHOICE,
WHEN YOU'RE
A WALKIN' BUM.
GOTTA GET BACK
HOME,
NOW,
ANY WAY
THAT I CAN,
THE ROCKS AND STONES
ARE HURTING MY FEET,
THIS WALKIN' BUM
IS STILL A MAN.
