"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

THIS TRAIN

THIS  TRAIN  TAKES  WHORES      AND  GAMBLERS

It was the Summer I ran off    & joined the rodeo

Been watching too much   Rifleman    Fell hard

for Mark    and on a lark jumped a train to         San Antonio

 

This hobo life  worked for    Jack & Woody

But a girl from suburbia?  Maybe stick to  blue

mustangs   and local buses    ‘Cause Mark was     a shit heel  anyway –

 

Oh. Ah, Gold, Honey, I’ve lost my way.

225th Chorus Kerouac 1955
