KING OF THE HOBO JUNGLE (Harlan Howard) Harlan Howard - 1965 When I walk through their cities They think I'm a common bum But I'll be a bigger man than they Before the setting sun My clothes are worn and ragged I'm barked at by every cur But down in the hobo jungle The 'bos all call me Sir 'Cause I'm the king of the hobo jungle No one disputes my claim I've toured all the jails, rode so many rails I've forgotten my real name (Instrumental Break) I once had a home and a family Just where I don't recall I did my best to settle down It just didn't work, that's all I think I'll take a little journey Just where I do not know Whichever way that old train comes by Then that's the way I'll go I'm the king of the hobo jungle No one disputes my claim I've toured all the jails, rode so many rails I've forgotten my real name (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2012)
