HOBO GIRL

N.Tinkham/C.Church
Rhythm Range Music/Altamae Music SOCAN

I started out on this journey
A long long time ago
Using clouds for landmarks
Round and round they go

Lonely trains at midnight
Ships that pass at dawn
Always going nowhere
And then they're gone

But still that empty highway
Leads me on and on
Always looking for a place to rest somewhere
Sometimes stopping there, but not for long

When the rain falls coldly
Huddled on the floor
The hobo girl is staring
Through the boxcar door

I don't want to be here
But no place is home
So while I make my mind up
I'll keep moving on

But still that empty highway
Leads me on and on
Always looking for a place to rest somewhere
Sometimes stopping there, but not for long

I see your face in starlight
I hear your voice in wind
But like a falling star, I look and there you are
For a moment, then you're gone again

I started out on this journey
A long long time ago
Using clouds for landmarks
Round and round they go
