A hobo is a migrant worker or homeless vagrant, especially one who is impoverished. The term originated in the Western-probably Northwestern-United States around 1890. Unlike a "tramp", who works only when forced to, and a "bum", who does not work at all, a "hobo" is a traveling worker. The origin of the term is unknown. According to etymologist Anatoly Liberman, the only certain detail about its origin is the word was first noticed in American English circa 1890.

Hallelujah, I’m A Bum Lyrics. Rockefeller's busy giving dough away; Chevrolet is busy making cars; Hobo, you keep busy when they throw away Slightly used cigars Hobo, you've no time to shirk You're busy keeping far away from work.

I am for sure homeles. am for sure looking for cheap places to live. I continuously rattle the cage on how to get good values, price has close to nothing to do with value, if it did, then renting a room would be easy. A good value for a room is this, it is the price you would pay and not feel regrets if you lived there for three months, always saying to yourself, I got a good deal. I have never and will never try to be a mooch, I do not try to take advantage of people, I do not try to live free.

Mud: I'm no bum. I got money.
