​Wanderin'

This song is by Dave Van Ronk and appears on the album Just Dave Van Ronk (1964).

My daddy is an engineer, my brother drives a hack
My sister takes in washing and the baby balls the jack
And it looks like ain't never gonna cease my wanderin'

I've been wanderin' early and late
From New York City to the Golden Gate
And it looks like ain't never gonna cease my wanderin'

Been a-workin' in the army, been a-workin' on the farm
And all I've got to show is this muscle in my arm
And it looks like ain't never gonna cease my wanderin'

Train wreck on a mount, ship wrecks at sea
Was a redheaded woman made a wreck out of me
And it looks like ain't never gonna cease my wanderin'

My daddy is an engineer, my brother drives a hack
My sister takes in washing and the baby balls the jack
And it looks like ain't never gonna cease my wanderin'
