See that lonesome hobo walkin' down the track;
His worldly possessions he carries on his back.
As he's walkin' down the track one thought goes thru his mind:
Things will be better further down the line.
'Cause nobody knows when a hobo cries,
Nobody cares when a hobo dies;
Nobody knows that his smile is a disguise;
'Cause nobody sees the hurt in his eyes.
(Adapted from "Lonesome Hobo" by Boxcar Willie)

Walking one really appreciates the realation between distance and time. This scene for maybe four hours does not change. But then more trees appear or less. At about seventy-five miles one has seen some water towers off to the side. Maybe a grain elevator closer to the track has shown up. On the ground discarded objects appear. The crunch of crushed stone is a percussion that accompanies the song.
