Here it is. Let us know what you think about it vs Gentle On Mind.
Interesting. Similar chord progression all right. Different enough in melody and rhythmic treatment that I wouldn't start wondering whether and when and which one was stealing from whom, especially not with these two of my favorite musicians, RIP them both.
I get spam in my inbox from hobots all the time
I remember watching this when it aired on PBS in the 1990s. I think Guitar Whitey from this is still around. I wonder if any of the others are.
NO, George and his two mates had just escaped from the Chain Gang and still had their shackles on. They managed to catch a train that had hobos in it, George was halfway in the boxcar when he asked the hobos the question about being smithies.
I watched this today. Had nothing to do and was kinda bummin'. Pretty good flick.

Rod and Woody cover Dylan...

Definition of locomotion
1: an act or the power of moving from place to place
Locomotion does not refer to any specific mode of transport.....it just mean using some method to move from place to place. By using the word locomotion did you mean travelling by train specifically?
Another traveler present described the operation of making a "mulligan." Five or six hobos join in this. One builds a fire and rustles a can. Another has to procure meat; another potatoes; one fellow pledges himself to obtain bread, and still another has to furnish onions, salt and pepper. If a chicken can be stolen, so much the better. The whole outfit is placed in the can and boiled until it is done. If one of the men is successful in procuring "Java," an oyster can is used for a coffee tank, and this is also put on the fire to boil. Incidentally, it may be mentioned that California hobos always put a "snipe" in their coffee, to give it that delicate amber color and to add to the aroma. "Snipe" is hobo for the butt end of a cigar that smokers throw down in the streets. All hobos have large quantities of snipes in their pockets, for both chewing and smoking purposes. A "beggar stew" is a "mulligan," without any meat
As an overseas visitor it is striking to us from Downunder how prevalent the homeless are in the US. Very sad song by Woody Guthrie, that and the photos on YouTube, brings tears to my eyes.
The more wealthy a nation is, the more homeless they seem to produce.
^^^^^Uhhhhh...except that there are many, many 3rd world/poor nations where those with a fixed address live worse than our homeless.
So there's that...
IMO the finest movie to portray the hobo life was HARD TIMES. New Orleans, 1933. In those days words didn't say much. With a all star cast of Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Strother Martin and Jill Ireland, this movie takes you right down into the mud the blood and the beer.
The Scandinavian countries must be 90% homeless.
I met two in the seventies. Shared a few beers on a hillside and gave them a ride to Trenton.
A good friend of mine says I'm a bum. Does that count?
Working on an extra gang for the railroad, picking apples one fall in Chelan, I met a few old time hoboes -- they'd work the harvest and move on, and when the snow flew they would head south. Tough way of living, and I don't know how many of them are still going, but bob Dylan didn't make them up, nor did woody Guthrie.
I drink hobo coffee once in a while. That count?
