Crying on his pillow [C] maybe he's crying for me [C7]
And [F] as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I'm [C] lonesome as I can [G7] be

Out in the [F] starlight just hoping you may be
Somewhere a [C] walking after [F] midnight
[G7] Searching for [C] me [C7]

There's a | [Am] voice, that | keeps on calling | [G] me | [G]
Down the | [Am] road, that's | where I'll always | [G] be | [G]
Every | [C] stop I make, | I make a new | [F] friend |

There's a | [Am] world, that's | waiting to un- | [G] fold | [G]
A brand new | [Am] tale, no | one has ever | [G] told | [G]
We've journeyed | [C] far but you | know it won't be | [F] long |
| [F] We're almost | [Dm] there, we've paid our |
| [G] fare with that hobo | [C] song | [C↓]

Chorus
Maybe to- | [Am] morrow,
I'll | [F] find what I call | [C↓] home [Em7↓] | [Am↓]
Until to- | [Dm] morrow,
you | [G] know I'm free to | [C] roam | [C] | [F] | [G]

So if you | [C] want to join me, | for a- | [F] while |
| [F] Just grab your | [Dm] hat, we'll travel |   
| [G] light, that's hobo | [C] style | [C↓]
