The Word - Waiting for a train a thousand miles from home

All around the water tower, waiting for a train, a thousand miles away from home. Sleeping in the rain. I walked up to a brakeman just to give him a line of talk. He said 'if you've got money I'll see that you don't walk'. "Well I haven't got a nickel  - not a penny can I show". 'Get off, get off, you railroad bum!' ... and he slammed that boxcar door.
