Here's my transcription of the Tony Rice recording:

DON'T GIVE YOUR HEART TO A RAMBLER
(Jimmie Skinner, 1944)

CHORUS
Don't fall in love with me darling, I'm a rambler
Although you're the sweetest sweetheart in this world
But it's all for your sake, dear, that I'm leaving
Don't give your heart to a rambler, little girl

If I'd never had the blues, my little darling
Or the lure of the road on my mind
But I'm bound to hear the whistle of a freight train
And the boxcars as they rattle down the line

Yes, I handed you a line, and I'm sorry
You're just a little sweeter than the rest
Believe me when I say I don't want to hurt you
Or do anything to mar your happiness

Don't be blue when I say that I don't love you
I've said it all so many times it seems
I'm just a guy whose restless mind keeps wandering
I guess that I was born to drift & dream

——w & m: Jimmie Skinner

Tony Rice sings just the first two verses. Can't recall where I found the third one.
