Ridin' in a boxcar On the old Sante Fe On my way from Texas To California I feel the time has come To rest my weary bones So I'm writin' here The very last will Of hobo Jonnie Jones. (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm bumm) To my sister Kate In New Orleans I leave the memory of those things She fed me When I knocked upon her door I'm leavin' her That woodpile job She can have my goldwatch bob (????) Farewell, Johnnnie's comin' home. Farewell, Johnnnie's comin' home. (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm bumm) To my brother Sam In Alabam' I leave the memory of that ham We stole From farmer Brown one day. I'm leavin' you The dreams we had Sorry mine Turned out so bad. Farewell, Johnnnie's comin' home. Farewell, Johnnnie's comin' home. (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm bumm) To my daddy In my old home town If my daddy's still around Then save That fishin' rod we made Daddy take that fishin' rod And catch us both a mess of cod Farewell, Johnnnie's comin' home. Farewell, Johnnnie's comin' home. (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm) (Bum bumm bumm bumm) To my mother up In heaven above Awaitin' there For me with love Tell her I never more will roam Mother, mother, wait for me Open up those gates for me Mamma your Jonnie's comin' home (Come home) Mamma your Jonnie's comin' home (Come home) Mamma your Jonnie's comin' home!
