Only a Hobo (Bob Dylan?) G C G As I was out walking on the corner one day D7 I spied an old hobo, in the doorway he lay G His face was all covered C G On the cold sidewalk floor I guess he'd been there D7 G For a whole night or more. (Chorus) C G He's only a hobo, but one more is gone D7 Leaving nobody to sing his sad song C G Leaving nobody to carry it on D7 G Only a hobo, but one more is gone. (C at end) A blanket of newspaper covered his head A step was his pillow, the street was his bed One look at his face Showed the hard road he'd come A fistful of money Showed the coins that he'd bummed. Does it take much of a man To see a whole life go down And look out on the world From a hole in the ground Too late for the future Like a horse that's gone lame To lie in the gutter and die with no name? copyright Bob Dylan?
