Lyrics for 'Big Rock Candy Mountain'

One evening as the sun set,
I saw upon the tracks,
A hobo that was hiking,
With a hat and tattered pack.

When I asked where he was going,
He said, "Far away from here,
Where the sun shines bright,
You can sleep all night,
And the lemonade springs
Where the bluebird sings,
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains."
