MEN ALL WANT TO BE HOBOES

by John Hartford


She needs a man to hold her hand
and love her tender care
He wants to know when he comes and goes
that she will stay right there
He really wants to be a hobo
the road he wants to fill
While she stays home and bakes the pies
and leaves them on the windowsill

Shes a faithful wife and she gives her life
and will die for just one man
while a rambler tries to be a gambler
and love as many women as he can
and so he flows and rows and grows
to know a hoboes cure

But a hoboes cure is a woman's lure
that pie on the windowsill

She gives to him and he receives
They love and then he leaves
He lies and cries and says goodby
Little darlin don't you grieve
So he roams and she stays home
and does what a woman will
dries her eyes and bakes her pies
and leaves them on the windowsill

She gives to him and he receives
they love and then he leaves
He lies and cries and says goodbye
little darlin don't you grieve

So he roams and she stays home
and does what a woman will
dries her eyes and bakes her pies
and leaves them on the windowsill
