Free Born Rambling Man

This song is by David Allan Coe and appears on the album Long Haired Redneck (1976).

I never meant to leave her my intentions were to stay
It wasn't nothing she had done or nothing she could say
To change this old familiar feeling that makes chills run through my skin
Less she read my mind and saw the sings that point around the bend
My toothbrush never leaves my pocket there's no anchor on my feet
If my sleepin' bag gets dusty and there's not enough to eat
I may stay an extra day till I find another town
You can bet there's not a lady that can show this freight train down
And I'll be moving in the morning leaving you behind
If anyone should ask you you can tell them they will find
Somebody walking down the highway with a guitar in his hand
And I'll always be remembered as a free born rambling man
Lord tell the children when they find me that I died but not in vain
They can find reincarnation in the whistle of a train
And each time they hear the whistle blow through the stillness of the land
They'll know that I was happy as a free born rambling man
And I'll be moving...
