Hello Henry! See you in two weeks' time, maybe? Sorry I haven't got that Tom Paxton song - didn't even know it existed!

There are lots of Paxton lyrics on this page (click) but not "Hobo in my Mind."
This page (click) says the song was on a 1973 Paxton album called "New Songs for Old Friends." I don't think the album is available.

Subject: Lyr Add: HOBO IN MY MIND (Tom Paxton)
From: Gurney
Date: 09 Nov 02 - 01:47 AM

I was looking through the unanswered threads and found that no-one had answered a request for Tom Paxton's 'Hobo in My Mind.'

HOBO IN MY MIND. Composed by Tom Paxton.
c 1974 United Artists Music Co.
From the album 'New songs for old friends. A lovely LP.


Up on Smoky mountain,
Drinking from a soda fountain,
That's where I was when I was
A hobo in my mind.
Hoppin' freights and pickin' dates,
Gobblin' beans from old tin plates,
It seems like years since I was just
A hobo in my mind.

It did no harm, it set my mind
To dreamin' of a way,
To get my hands on something
That I had to find someday,
Far beyond Chicago,
Somewhere where the longest trains go,
That's where I was when I was
A hobo in my mind.

(short instrumental break)

Me and a couple of buddies,
We didn't care if our shoes got muddy,
We didn't care where the trains were bound
We'd ride them rascals blind.
Oh, maybe I was crazy,
Maybe just my foolish ways,
But that's where I was when I was
A hobo in my mind.

(repeat middle verse twice, quiet finish with repeat "Thats where I was when I was a hobo in my mind."

I can't believe this! Thank you, Gurney! I must have overlooked this thread entirely after refreshing it myself. After claiming I didn't know this song existed I find that not only do I own the album Joe Offer refers to - the lyrics are actually printed on the back of the sleeve! Awfully sorry, and my only excuse is this is my least favourite Paxton album. I think I've listened to it twice since buying it. (Which does not explain why the song didn't show up in my database when I was first asked for it. It's definitely there! Folk gremlins?)
