Go to sleep, my weary hobo 
Let the towns drift slowly by; 
Can't you hear the steel rails humming 
That's the hobo's lullaby. 

Do not think about tomorrows 
Let tomorrows come and go. 
Tonight you've got a nice warm boxcar 
Safe from all these winds and snow. 

I know the police cause you trouble, 
They cause trouble everywhere; 
But when you die and go to heaven, 
You'll find no policeman there
