Travelin' Blues

(I was traveling through South Americas
Walked up to a lady's house
Called her " grandma "
Didn't know her name
She give me something to eat
Walked on down the road
I heard a old train getting off like this:

I heard a old bell ring kinda like this:

I went on down and I heard a old whistle blow
I heard it say:)

Look-a-yonder

Look-a-yonder

At the women

At the women

(I went on, then I began to sing to the engineer:)

Mr. Engineer
let a man ride the blind
Mr. Engineer
let a poor man ride the blind
Said, I wouldn't mind it, fella
but you know this train ain't mine

(I begin to hear that old fella blowing longs and shorts
Here the way he blowed:

Then I begin to sing to him one more time:)

You's a cruel fireman
low down engineer
You's a cruel fireman
low down engineer
I'm trying to hobo my way
and you leave me standing here

(Then I goes on to follow him and begin to sing Poor Boy to him

And he begin to smile in my face:)

Get up fella
ride all around the world
Get up fella
ride all around the world
Poor boy
you ain't got no girl
(Then I begin to hear him tell me about those cheese and eggs

How he wanted 'em fixed
Heard him say:)

Scrambled down

Scrambled do-own

Scrambled down

(Then I begin to hear him tell me about them cheese and eggs

I heard him say:)

Cheese

Eggs

Dinner

Dinner

(Then I begin to hear him tell me about Emery :)

I love you Emery
I love you true
I love you Emerald
Tell the world I do

Em
