Tryin' to make a livin'
And doin' the best I can
And when it's time for leavin'
I hope you'll understand
That l was born a ramblin' man
Well my father was a gambler down in Georgia
And he wound up on the wrong end of a gun
And I was born in the backseat of a Greyhound Bus
Rollin' down Highway 41
I'm on my way to New Orleans this mornin'
Leavin' out of Nashville Tennessee
They're always havin' a good time down on the bayou
Lord, then Delta women think the world of me
Lord I was born a ramblin' man
