Written & recorded by: Hank Williams, Sr.
I can [6m/Am] settle down and be doin' just fine
Til I [3-7/E-7] hear an old train
Rollin' down the [6m/Am] line
Then I hurry straight home and pack
And if I [3-7/E-7] didn't go
I believe I'd blow my [6m/Am] stack
I love you baby, but you gotta understand
When the [3-7/E-7] Lord made me
He made a Ramblin'[6m/Am] Man.
Some folks might say that I'm no good
That I wouldn't settle down if I could
But when that open road starts to callin' me
There's somethin' o'er the hill that I gotta see
Sometimes it's hard but you gotta understand
When the Lord made me, He made a Ramblin' Man.
I love to see the towns a-passin' by
And to ride these rails 'neath God's blue sky
Let me travel this land from the mountains to the sea
'Cause that's the life I believe He meant for me
And when I'm gone and at my grave you stand
Just say God called home your Ramblin' Man.
