C G I used to be a ramblin' gal Am C G Oh but I got tired, and I settled down. C G A long long way, my feet did try Am C G Till the life got heavy and the times got hard. C G I've been out east, and I've been out west Am C G But the southern states are the ones I love the best. C G Alabam, Mississip, Louisan Am C G The Carolines, Tennessee, and Georgia's kind. Well in California I nearly lost my head I wound up wishing that I was dead. But when I reached Cheyenne I was feeling clear wanted to live again. Well I shed a tear in nearly every state Just wandering down that lost highway. Now the open road, starts to calling me But there ain't no place that I want to be. Yes I used to be a ramblin' gal Oh but i got tired and I settled down.
