Bob Dylan – Only A Hobo
  G                       C      G
As I was out walking on a corner one day
G D
I spied an old hobo, in a doorway he lay
G C G
His face was all grounded in the cold sidewalk floor
G D G
And I guess he’d been there for the whole night or more

C G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
G D
Leavin’ nobody to sing his sad song
G C G
Leavin’ nobody to carry him home
G D G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone

G C G
А blanket of newspaper covered his head
G D
As the curb was his pillow, the street was his bed
G C C
One look at his face showed the hard road he’d come
G D G
And a fistful of coins showed the money he bummed

C G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
G D
Leavin’ nobody to sing his sad song
G C G
Leavin’ nobody to carry him home
G D G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone

G C G
Does it take much of a man to see his whole life go down
G D
To look up on the world from a hole in the ground
G C G
To wait for your future like a horse that’s gone lame
G D G
To lie in the gutter and die with no name?

C G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
G D
Leavin’ nobody to sing his sad song
G C G
Leavin’ nobody to carry him home
G D G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
