After going through it, these are the words I remember.

ROMPIN' ROVIN' DAYS

Hey, I have been a rambler all my rompin' rovin' days
A railway boy with nothin' for to do
My people wave farewell somewheres down the road
A hobos, friend, I'm only passin' through.

Now I've seen every city from San Marcos in the south
To the sunny concrete fenced-in walls of New York town
And everywhere I go my name nobody wants to know
And the talkin' seems to stop when I'm around.

Now all in my life I've been quickly cast aside
Though my handshake never meant less than your own
If there's any which way for to truly understand
Then tell me 'cause I'd surely like to know.

For every mile of freight train, I've walked a city block
Gazin' through the windows at the goods I couldn't buy
But the thing that hurts me most is when I'm wanderin' alone
And nobody cares enough to ask me why.

Hey, I've been a rambler all my rompin' rovin' days
A railway boy with nothin' for to do
My people wave farewell somewheres down the road
A hobos, friend, I'm only passin' through.
