Reel 390 Item 8
The Denver Girl (Ten Thousand Miles Away from Home)
As I stepped off at Denver,
Got stuck on a Denver girl
I'll tell you boys she out of sight
She wears a Denver curl.
Thatgirl she wears her hair done up
That girl she good and true
But as the Denver train rolls up I'll bid that girl adeiu.
AH around the depot Waiting for a train Cold and hungry I lay down Sleeping in the rain.
Think of those good old times Hoping they'd come again Ten thousand miles away from home Beating on the train.
Now when I'm in your city boys I'll try and do whats right Don't think because I'm a railroad man That I'm not alright.
My pocketbook is empty My heart is full of pain Ten thousand miles away from home Beating in the rain.
