lyrics

I've got a sack and a stick
and a stiff pair of boots
Sure don't like shavin'
I stay true to my roots
Some people think I'm dirty
but that's just a little bit of dust
The fillings in my mouth
have started to rust
I don't live on the street
but I sleep on the ground
A campfire is my living room
and the world is my town

Don't call me a bum,
I'm a hobo
Not looking for a handout
just a place to lay low
I don't steal I borrow
and I'll lend you a hand
I ain't afraid of workin'
but I won't if I can

I live by the skills that I learned
as a scout
My friends are the people
who don't kick me out
We get our vigor from
the simplest of means
Like bacon and jerky
cupcakes and beans
These clothes aren't the cleanest
but at least I don't stink
'Cause I've got a rag
and I can find me a sink

So, don't call me a bum,
I'm a hobo
Not looking for a handout
just a place to lay low
I don't steal I borrow
and I'll lend you a hand
I ain't afraid of workin'
but I won't if I can
