  • I've seen it all boys, I've been all over
    Been everywhere in the whole wide world
    I rode the high line with Old Blind Darby
    I danced real slow with Ida Jane
    I was full of wonder when I left Murfreesboro
    Now I am full of hollow on Maxwell Street

    And I hope my pony
    I hope my pony
    I hope my pony knows the way back home

    I walked from Natchez to Hushpukena
    I built a fire by the side of the road
    I worked for nothin' in a Belzoni saw mill
    And I caught a blind out on the B and O
    Talullah's friendly, Belzoni ain't so
    A forty-four will get you ninety-nine

    I hope my pony
    I hope my pony
    I hope my pony knows the way back home

    I run my race with Burnt-Face Jake
    I gave him a Manzanita cross
    I lived on nothin' but dreams and train smoke
    Somehow my watch and chain got lost
    I wish I was home, in Evelyn's kitchen
    With old Gyp curled around my feet

    I hope my pony
    I hope my pony
    I hope my pony knows the way back home

    I hope my pony
    I hope my pony
    I hope my pony knows the way back home Writer/s: THOMAS ALAN WAITS
