LYRICS:
CHORUS:
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man, try'n to make a livin' and doin' the best I can.
And when it's time for leavin', I hope you'll understand that I was born a ramblin' man.

VERSE ONE:
Well, my father was a gambler down in Georgia, and he wound up on the wrong end of a gun.
And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus rollin' down Highway Forty One.

(CHORUS)

VERSE TWO:
I'm on my way to New Orleans this mornin', leavin' out of Nashville, Tennessee.
They're always havin' a good time down on the bayou.
Lord them delta women think the world of me.

(CHORUS)

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man.
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man.
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man.
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man.(Fade Out)
