Subject: Lyr/Chords Req: New Christy Minstrels' hits
From: Jason Xion Wang
Date: 29 Mar 14 - 11:35 PM

I just found that there are only a few NCM lyrics here on mudcat. "Green, Green" and "Today" are on DT, "Last Farewell" and "Anything Love Can Buy" are also in some threads, but I can't find the chords or lyrics to other minor hits like "Ramblin'", "Denver" and typical NCM works like "A Travelin' Man", "Rovin' Gambler", "Whippoorwill". Can anybody help? Thanks a lot.

Jason

Here is what I got, lyrics but not chords to "Denver".
John Denver got his stage name from this song, I believe.
I tried to transcribe the lyrics to "Ramblin'" and "A Travelin' Man" as well, but failed. A few words I couldn't recognize clearly.

DENVER
(Randy Sparks)

Ha!
Come on, big mule!

I was drivin' a rig outta Texas
All loaded an' bound for Cheyenne
Takin' my pleasures so freely
Just a good lovin' ramblin' man

I had quite a way with the ladies
"Sweet Daddy" was my middle name
Till I got to a place they called Denver
And I ain't never been quite the same
Ha!

I've been to St Louis and Abilene
I've rambled through many a town
But I got me a woman in Denver, Lord
That's where I'm settlin' down

Well, I kissed her an' swore that I loved her
I told her some day she'd be mine
And then I laughed all the way back to Texas
Hah-hah, to think she'd believe that ol' line

Well, I got to pinin' for Denver
It's funny how things come to be
As I slipped the ring on her finger
Well, I knew that the laugh was on me
Ha!

I've been to St Louis and Abilene
I've rambled through many a town
But I got me a woman in Denver, Lord
That's where I'm settlin' down

Now all you young fellas take warnin'
You single men, run for your life
Be careful an' stay outta Denver
Or else you'll wind up with a wife

You'll walk down the street unsuspectin'
And you won't believe what you see
'Cause the prettiest gals live in Denver
Lord, you'll wind up happy like me
Ha!

I've been to St Louis and Abilene
I've rambled through many a town
But I got me a woman in Denver, Lord
That's where I'm settlin' down

Come on, big mule!

Got me a woman in Denver, Lord
That's where I'm settlin' down
Ha!

A Travelin' Man - sounds like a song written by Randy Sparks, but it's actually a Scott Turner song. Here is what I hear, still lyrics but not chords.

A Travelin' Man
(Scott Turner)

A travelin' man always longs for a home
'Cause a travelin' man is always alone

I traveled from Maine to the Barbary Shore
But I'm gettin' so weary, I can travel no more

I rambled the highways and sailed 'cross the sea
Wonderin', always wonderin' where the next stop would be

A travelin' man always longs for a home
'Cause a travelin' man is always alone

Seen the mansions of England, the villas of Rome
Each man has his castle, but the road's been my home

So fair thee well, ladies, there's none quite so fair
But a travelin' man has only one prayer

To be just a farmer with a plow and a hoe
Instead of a drifter with no place to go

A travelin' man always longs for a home
'Cause a travelin' man is always alone

Yes, a travelin' man always longs for a home
'Cause a travelin' man is always alone

RAMBLIN'
(Randy Sparks)

(I've been a-ramblin', ramblin')

I've been ramblin'
Lord, I've been ramblin'
I've been north, south, east, west, all up and down the line
I've been waitin', anticipatin'
Lookin' for the sun to shine

(I've been a-ramblin', ramblin')

Kansas City, New Orleans
Just like an ol' muddy river, I gotta roll along
I gotta ramble, I gotta ramble
I gotta sing my lonely song

(I've been a-ramblin', ramblin')

I had a woman (had a woman)
Once I had a woman (yes a pretty woman)
She was the truest woman this world will ever see
Oh well, I loved her, yes I loved her
And she was true to everyone
But me (poor boy)

(I've been a-ramblin', ramblin')

Trains are comin' (trains are comin')
My trains are comin' (trains are comin')
Can't you hear that lonesome whistle moanin' down the track
I gotta ramble, I gotta ramble
I got a feelin' that I won't be back

(I've been a-ramblin', ramblin') (poor boy)

I gotta ramble on
I'm movin' north and south, all up and down the line
Yes, I'm ramblin'

(I've been a-ramblin', ramblin') (poor boy)
