Arlo Guthrie wrote this in 1973, and I've enjoyed singing it almost ever since. (It's hard to resist a line like "you'll know you're reasonably there.") I have taken the liberty of using the first verse as a chorus. Many of you will appreciate the reference to "Man of Constant Sorrow," but, if you don't, I urge you to look up a version of that fine traditional song.
I want to hop on the last train in the station;
Maybe you ain't walked on any highways.
Maybe you've been lying down in the jailhouse;
Now, I ain't a man of constant sorrow,
