Like a hobo - Charlie Winston

Publié par Sandrine CHARAVY  - Catégories :  #TERMINALES S LV2

 

 

I’ve always known
Since I was a young boy
In this world, everything’s as good as bad
Now my father told me always speak a true word
And I have to say that is the best advice I’ve had
Because something burns inside of me
It’s everything I long to be
And lies they only stop me from feeling free

Like a hobo from a broken home
Nothing’s gonna stop me
Like a hobo from a broken home
Nothing’s gonna stop me

I’ve never yearned for anybody’s fortune
The less I have the more I am a happy man
Now my mother told me always keep your head on
Because some may praise you just to get what they want
And I said mama I am not afraid
They will take what they will take
And what would life be like without a few mistakes

Like a hobo from a broken home
Nothing’s gonna stop me
Like a hobo from a broken home
Nothing’s gonna stop me

 

 

Hobo is a term used to refer to a homeless person, or a tramp and vagabond. It is generally someone who is in search of a job. The term originated in the western United States during the last decade of the 19th century.

The Ho(meless) Bo(hemians) jumped from a freight train to another so as to travel. As life was not easy for them, they elaborated a code to communicate. They used to write this code with chalk or coal in order to give informations or warnings to other hobos.
