Hobo, Tranp, bum - not made of the same material.

Hobo is a term that refers to a subculture of wandering homeless people, particularly those who make a habit of hopping freight trains. They often ask for money. The iconic image of a hobo is that of a downtrodden, shabbily-dressed and perhaps drunken male, one that was solidified in American culture during the Great Depression. Hobos are often depicted carrying a bindle or a sign asking for money.
