Bob Dylan - Only a Hobo: chords

G                          C          G
As I was out walking on a corner one day,
                                      D
I spied an old hobo, in a doorway he lay.
     G                            C              G
His face was all grounded in the cold sidewalk floor
                                      D             G
And I guess he'd been there for the whole night or more.

Chorus:
C                G
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
                                D   C G/B
Leavin' nobody to sing his sad song
 G                 C         G
Leavin' nobody to carry him home
                        D        C   G
He was only a hobo, but one more is gone

A blanket of newspaper covered his head,
As the curb was his pillow, the street was his bed.
One look at his face showed the hard road he'd come
And a fistful of coins showed the money he bummed.

Chorus:
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
Leavin' nobody to sing his sad song
Leavin' nobody to carry him home
Only a hobo, but one more is gone

Does it take much of a man to see his whole life go down,
To look up on the world from a hole in the ground,
To wait for your future like a horse that's gone lame,
To lie in the gutter and die with no name?

Chorus:
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
Leavin' nobody to sing his sad song
Leavin' nobody to carry him home
Only a hobo, but one more is gone
