I want to tell you folks about the travelling man that was raised down in Tennessee
He made his living stealing chickens and other things I couldn't see

He was a travelling man, must have been a travelling man
A travelling coon that there was in the land
He travelled he's known for miles around
And wouldn't give up and wouldn't give up until the police shot him down

They got fifteen Winchesters shot that coon right through the head
Well all the people standing around said oh that coon was dead
They picked him up and shipped him south it was one the best
Looked in that coffin, well done and disappeared

He was a travelling man, must have been a travelling man
A travelling coon that there was in the land
He travelled he's known for miles around
And wouldn't give up and wouldn't give up until the police shot him down

I heard this coon got on the Titanic with all the people that he knows
He spotted the iceberg coming, right over that (?) blue
Oh well the people standing on the other end (?) give that coon a "Boo"
Now when the Titanic ship went down, he's shooting dice in Liverpool town

He was a travelling man, must have been a travelling man
A travelling coon that there was in the land
He travelled he's known for miles around
And wouldn't give up and wouldn't give up until the police shot him down
