I Am A Lonesome Hobo
I am a lonesome hobo without family or friends
Where another man's life might begin, that's exactly where mine ends
I have tried my hand at bribery, blackmail, and deceit
And I've served time for everything 'cept beggin' on the street

Well, once I was rather prosperous, there was nothing I did lack
I had fourteen-karat gold in my mouth and silk upon my back
But I did not trust my brother, I carried him to blame
Which led me to my fatal doom, to wander off in shame

Kind ladies and kind gentlemen, soon I will be gone
But let me just warn you all, before I do pass on
Stay free from petty jealousies, live by no man's code
And hold your judgment for yourself, lest you wind up on this road

Bob Dylan
