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........

Nice, Dave.  This hobo is showing some personality.

“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?

i’ll be Gone in the mornin, an old hobo won’t keep.

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.
