Title Tramp in the Rain
Description TEAKP IN THE RAIN Oh, the night, it was dark and stormy When along came a tramp In the rain. He was making his way to sense station To catch a long distant train. "May I sleep in your barn tonight, Mi3ter? For it'a Gold and wet on the ground, And the cold north wind whistles around me, And I have no place to lie down.™ I have no tobacco nor matches. So I'm sure I can do you no harm. I will tell you my story, kind Mister, For it runs through my mind like a charm. It was two years ago last summer. I Bhall never forget that sad day, When a stranger came out of the city, And Baid that he wanted to stay. That night as I came from my workshop, I was whistling and singing with joy. Expecting a kind-hearted welcome Rroni ay dear loving wife and n^ boy. But instead I found there a letter. It was placed in my room on the stand. And the moment my eyes fell upon it, I picked it right up in my hand. How this note said my wife and the stranger They bad gone and had taken my son. Bow I wonder if God up in Heaven, Beally knows what that stranger has done." Submitted by Ona Anderson, Wales, Utah. -96-
