[alert_box type=”info”]Originally appeared on Trout Mask Replica[/alert_box]

Strawwood claw rattlin’ m’ jaw
I can’t call it usin’
It’s just sumptin’ soothin’
Feather times uh feather
Mornin’ time t’ thaw
Hobo chang ba
Hobo chang ba
Standin’ still is losin’
Feather times a feather
Mornin’ time t’ thaw
Strawwood claw rattlin’ m’ jaw
Hobo chang ba
Hobo chang ba
Hobo chang ba ‘o
Hobo chang ba ‘o
Stand t’ gain m’ ground
Lay t’ rest the law
The ocean is m’ mother
‘n the freight train is m’ paw
Hobo chang ba
Hobo chang ba ‘o
Hobo chang ba
The rails I ride ‘r rustin’
The new sunrise m’ trustin’
The rails I ride ‘r rustin’
The new sunrise m’ trustin’
Strawwood claw rattlin’ m’ jaw
Hobo chang ba ooh
Hobo chang ba, Hobo

(1969)
