Hobo's Meditation
Merle Haggard

Tonight as I lay on a boxcar just waiting for train to pass by
What will become of the hobo whenever his time comes to die
There's a Master up yonder in heaven got a place that we might call our home
Will we have to work for a livin' or can we continue to roam

Will there be any freight trains in heaven any boxcars in which we might hide
Will there be any tough cops or brakemen will they tell us that we cannot ride
Will the hobo chum with the rich man will we always have money to spare
Will they have respect for the hobo in that land which lies hidden up there

Will there be any freight trains in heaven...
