That is like a good poem, Daniel.  I continue to work on it or try to.  We can come at it from more than one angle.  My current instinct is to set the scene talking, go into the song and keep it simple.

perhaps the hobo isn't who we think. 

U.J., I cannot make a video yet. try as i have.

perhaps you can message me the parts you like?......(..may not give up.....).....

how about these for the next few verses: (...tangential from former verses....?)

...after listening again.......

i stepped up to him,...and said earnestly,....hey brother, how can i help out?.........

he tipped his gray hat,....and looked in my eyes,.....and said mister,.......please look about,........

i took note of the rags,....that hung from his frame,....and saw the deep pain in his eyes,....

right then i could feel,....that something might heal,.....what wonder lust couldn't disguise,......

a smile from my heart,..........and a wooden guitar,.............i gifted the man.......... pretzels i had in my bag.............

he smiled and we knew,.....as the train whistle blew.........the glow, of the journey, would grow.....

Comment by Uncle John yesterday

Ah.   Love that hobo cat, Nancy.

Good lines, Danny.  It seems like I could make this into a short story, but I am stuck (for now) on putting the parts together and making it a song. 

Comment by Danny Gordon on Monday

Great one Unc. 

here some lines: I've seen bad times and I've seen good

I've suffered all kinds of ills

But I wouldn't trade the hobo life and all it's thrills

for an ounce of gold.

Comment by Nancy kat on Monday

Meeeeowwwwww^..^...hope it gets completed good start to it U John!

Comment by Uncle John on Sunday

Daniel, please go ahead and see if you can complete the song and even video it.  I think I have to set it aside for a while.

Comment by Daniel Walter on Sunday

Uncle? We could sing on the phone..........Sorry, I better shuck the corn.

Comment by Daniel Walter on Friday

hmmmm. thank you John. I'm kinda stuck also. let's try to get un-stuck together in different places.

Comment by Uncle John on Friday

I tried to work on this today, Daniel, using your lyrics and more.   I am kind of stuck.....  

Comment by Daniel Walter on Friday

thanks from me as well Richard, my scribbles were a response to Uncle's asking "can you add...", with the melody stuck in my head.......did you say beach?.........
