Asus4 A Asus4 A

F#m E D

Too late to feel sorrow,

Bm A G

Too late to feel pain


Now he’s just an old hobo

A Asus4 A

Lost out in the rain

F#m E D

He’ll never cause trouble,

Bm A G

So don’t have no fear


He’s just an old hobo,

A Asus4 A

And he’ll soon be far away from here

C# D Dsus4 D

He used to be a gambling man just like you


Until he sank so low that there was

E Asus4 A

Nothin’ that no one could do

Oh, don't make him ask you,

Don’t make him beg

He was a war hero

And that’s how he hurt his leg

Well, killed thirty ‘ingines,

With one cannon ball

Now he’s just an old hobo

Asleep out in the hall

A wife and five children

Who live in L.A.

Oh, they miss their dear daddy

Who’s gone so far away

They still have his picture,

It’s a-hung on the wall

Now he’s just an old hobo

Asleep out in the hall
