Capo:1st fret

INTRO
G
 
VERSE 1
G                           C          G
As I was out walking on the corner one day
                            D
I spied an old hobo, in the doorway he lay
    G                           C             G
His face was all covered in the cold sidewalk floor
                              D              G
I guess he'd been there for a whole night or more
 
CHORUS
       C                G
He was only a hobo, but one more is gone
                  D
Leaving nobody to carry it on
C                 G
Leaving nobody to sing his sad song
                 C           G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
 
INTERLUDE
G
 
VERSE 2
G                      C           G
A blanket of newspaper covered his head
                             D
The step was his pillow, the street was his bed
    G                           C              G
One look at his face showed the hard road he'd come
                                  D               G
And a fistful of money showed the coins that he'd bummed
 
CHORUS
       C                G
He was only a hobo, but one more is gone
                  D
Leavin' nobody to sing his sad song
C                 G
Leavin' nobody to carry it on
                 C           G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
 
INTERLUDE
G
 
VERSE 3
G
Does it take much of a man
         C             G
To see a whole life go down
G
To look on the world
       D
From a hole in the ground
    G
Too late for your future
       C                 G
Like a horse that's gone lame
G
To lie in the gutter
    C           G
And die with no name
 
CHORUS
       C                G
He was only a hobo, but one more is gone
                  D
Leavin' nobody to sing his sad song
C                 G
Leavin' nobody to carry it on
                 C           G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
