I was standing down in New York town one day
Standing down in New York town one day
I was standing down in New York town one day

I was broke I didn't have a dime
I was broke I didn't have a dime
I was broke I didn't have a dime
Singing Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey

Every good man gets a little hard luck sometimes
Every good man gets a little hard luck sometimes
Every good man gets a little hard luck sometimes
Singing Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey

Down and out he ain't got a dime
Down and out he ain't got a dime
Down and out he ain't got a dime
Singing Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey

I'm gonna ride that New Mourning Railroad
I'm gonna ride that New Mourning Train
Yes sir I'm gonna ride that New Mourning Train
Singing Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey

Never coming back to this man's town again
Never coming back to this man's town again
Never coming back to this man's town again
Singing Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey
