The chill's departed from the air
The open country calls again,
And round about us everywhere
The golden sunshine falls again.
The roaming breeze is soft and
And following his code again
With drowsy eyes and lazy feet
The hobo's on the road again.
No routine weary binds him dowrr
To any one locality.
He is notkept within the town
By duty or frugality. '
Wherever any hand-outs grow
He seeks that glad abode again,
And rural housewives well may
The hobo's on the road again.
Sometimes he works more oftea
But loafs in pleasanjt drowsi
v ness
Within some shaded grassy spot,
Unmindful of his frowsiness.
We sweat and toil and fret and
All bending tcf our load again.
He laughs maybe the joke's ort
The hobo's on the road again ! .
