Love you, woman, but you don't treat me right, hey babe
Love you, woman, honey, but you don't treat me right
Spends all my money and stay out late at night

Love you, woman, don't put me down, hey babe
Love you, woman, honey, but I b'lieve it's all in vain
Some of these mornings, I'll catch a lonesome train

I'm a travelin' man, oh Lord, travel 'most everywhere
Travelin' man, travelin' 'most everywhere
Don't b'lieve I'm travelin', you just count the days
You just count the days I'll be gone

Now you can go, Chattanooga, or you don't find me there
Go to Mississ', you don't find me there
First thing smokin', find me on the road
Find me on the road somewhere

Love you, woman, love you to my soul, hey babe
Love you, woman, honey, I love you to my soul
Next letter you get from me, honey, I'm further down the road

Love you, woman, love you to my heart, hey babe
Love you, woman, I love you to my heart
So sorry, woman, that we got to part

'Cause I'm a travelin' man, oh Lord, travel 'most everywhere, pretty mama
Travelin' man, travelin' 'most everywhere
Don't b'lieve I'm travelin', you just count the days
You just count the days I'll be gone
