"The Tramp" is a poem by L. Frank Baum. It was included in Baum's 1898 collection By the Candelabra's Glare, and later reprinted in L. Frank Baum's Juvenile Speaker (1910) and its successors.

In both form and content, "The Tramp" resembles "When the Whistle Blows," another poem from the same volumes; "The Tramp" is a short poem, of two stanzas of eight lines each, with a sympathetic view of the lower social classes. As one poem is about factory workers, so the other concerns a "Poor old tramp" who "Begs his food from door to door" and "Sleeps at night upon the floor."
