Pancakes (Abe Loomis)

Well I ramble around on the old freight cars
Most times I sleep under the stars
It gets a little chilly on the autumn nights for me

I’m a jack of all trades and a handy man
Cook you anything you can thrown in a pan
But I’ve got a culinary specialty

Pancakes, pancakes
From the Delta swamps to the Finger Lakes
Soft and sweet, big and round
Stir ‘em up, lay ‘em down

Pancakes, pancakes
Lighter than a feather and thick as steaks
Any time of day it’s got to be
Just the pancakes for me

Well I’ve seen about all there is to see
I even been up to Canadee
They talk a little funny
But they’ll give a man a hand

From the port of Massachusetts
To the dock of the bay
The people are the same every step of the way
And even when I crossed the Rio Grande…


inst break

So if you see a poor soul coming down the line
Busted and broke, and smelling of wine
Don’t forget there but for the grace of god go thee

Reach out to him and it only takes a little
Warmth in your heart, oil on the griddle
And he just needs the same as you or me…
