Boxcar Willie – The Lord Made A Hobo Out of Me Lyrics

Well the Lord made a hobo out of me
He took my soul and then He set it free
I travel around and around and I sing in every town
Yeah the Lord made a hobo out of me

Well the Lord gave me a big black train
A home in the sunshine and rain
I live a life of ease and I do just what I please
Yeah the Lord made a hobo out of me

Well I said I’d settle down and go to work
But digging ditches makes my back hurt
Well I put that shovel down and caught that southern bound
Yeah the Lord made a hobo out of me

Repeat #1 Hey the …

Well I thought that I would try married life
So I married me a great big ole wife
I couldn’t take the strain so I caught the freedom train
Yeah the Lord made a hobo out of me

Repeat #1 Hey the …

Yeah the Lord made a hobo out of me
