Unc J., just a first try, .........next few lines? i'll work on it, just wanted to........... 

so i slipped him a five,.....to keep him alive,......and he said,........thank you kind sir.

i pointed it out,......that i'd just run out,.......to see him too try,........ and finally ask why?

he stood up quite bold,......,,,was not a bit cold,...........and said in a soft spoken voice,.......

i'll tell you kind sir,.........i've tried and i've tried,............i just.....don't fit in a mold............

the train whistle blew,........and off we both flew,.............him to the boxcar,..........and me to my home.,,,.......

before the wheels turned,.......i had returned,.........and said hey there my friend,.........

take this here hat,..............and a three string magic machine,..............and a good firm handshake as well,.........

the tracks are your bass,.........play as you go,...........you'll soon have the flow,...........

then put out your hat,.........and play in b flat,.............you'll get along quite good,........your spirit is strong,..........and the tracks they are quite long.....

the wheels there are many,.......they started to turn,.......as he went off,......i heard a light strum,........

and could do nothing but hum.............and hum,.....and hum,.......then started to strum,.........

smiling as the train crossed my path........

“Could you give me a pie? Bet your woman’s a good Baker. 

I could sure use a soft pillow, this old bag smells like rubbish.

Have you got an old shoe as mine lost it’s heal?

Thanks, Alan, Pick and Dave.  Find those lyrics, Dave!   I feel right now like the song is a nice truck stuck deep in a mud bog and going nowhere.

Geez Unc. Great song already. I wrote some lyrics last night in a comment but it has vanished. ? Guess you’re on your own Unc.
