G                           D
Though I can't show you the years of my life
       C                    G
That I spend on the road to freedom
G                         D
Don't let it throw you, I know of your strife
  C                      G
I know what it's like to roam
G                       D
I sang 'em a glad song, played 'em a sad song
C                        G
Sang 'em the whole night long
G                    D
Just for a dollar or what they could offer
   C                   G
To somebody's ramblin' boy

C                                                     G
When the fun was done, I would pack my bags and I was gone
           D                         C                     G
Though the women were kind there was nothing to bind me to one
     C        G          C               G
'Til somebody changed my rough and rowdy ways
C        G          C             G
Somebody changed my ole carousing days
   C            G           C          G
Oh when I was a young boy I learned to survive
     C        G        D                  G
'Til somebody came and stayed my sportin' life

I lived in the barrooms the juke joints and gin mills
I worked any dive in town
Never to proud to pass my hat around
In every place I found
I'll sing you a glad song, play you a sad song
Sing 'em the whole night long
Just for a dollar or what you can offer
To somebody's ramblin' boy

There were times when lonely was the only feeling left in me
Or when the cold and the rain made it hard on a man to be free
'Till somebody changed my tough and hungry days
Somebody changed my rough and rowdy ways
Now I don't really care no more 'bout nickels and a dime
The one I love is all I need to help me spend my time
Somebody came and rolled away my stone
Somebody came, and she made me feel at home
Somebody changed my rough and rowdy ways
Somebody changed my ole carousing days
Oh when I was young boy I learned to stay alive
'Til somebody came and stayed my sportin' life

I'll sing you a glad song, play you a sad song
Sing 'em the whole night long
Just for a dollar or what you can offer
To somebody's ramblin' boy
