How did I come …

How did I come to know
so many lonesome cities
with only pennies in my pockets?
I smiled a lot
and Rode a lot of trains
and got to know conductors
and railroad bulls by name.
From Alamo to Naples is a ride
that took me nearly twenty years
But here I am,
my cardboard suitcase traded in for leather.
