POEM: "Jimmie Rodgers In China 1930"

Jimmie Rodgers In China 1930

A thousand miles away from home 
I'm waiting for a train 

my pocket book is empty
no one seems to want me 
or lend me a helping hand 
my heart is filled with sorrow
I suppose I'm going south
find me a boxcar full of women 
go where the water tastes like wine 
happy new year suckers 
just another one going home 
the moon and stars in the sky above 
and I’m a sucker too.
