LED ZEPPELIN - Poor Tom Lyrics

(page/plant)Here's a tale of tomWho worked the railroads longHis wife would cook his mealAs he would change the wheelPoor tom, seventh son, always knew what's goin onAin't a thing that you can hide from tomThere ain't nothing that you can hide from tomWorked for thirty yearsSharing hopes and fearsDreamin' of the dayHe could turn and sayPoor tom, work's done, been lazin' out in the noonday sunAin't a thing that you can hide from tomHis wife was annie maeWith any man a game she'd playWhen tom was out of townShe couldn't keep her dress downPoor tom, seventh son, always knew what's goin onAin't a thing that you can hide from tomAnd so it was one dayPeople got to annie mae (? )Tom stood, a gun in his handAnd stopped her runnin' aroundPoor tom, seventh son, gotta die for what you've doneAll those years of work are thrown awayTo ease your mind is that all you can say? But what about that grandson on your knee? Them railroad songs, tom would sing to meAin't nothing that you can hide from tomKeep-a truckin'
