Covering Hank Williams’ Ramblin’ Man (1951)

I could settle down and be doin’ just fine
Til I hear an old freight comin’ down the line
Then I hurry straight home and pack
‘Cause if I didn’t go, I believe I’d blow my stack
I love you baby, but you gotta understand
When the lord made me, he made a ramblin’ man.

Some folks might say that I’m no good
That I wouldn’t settle down if I could
But when that open road starts callin’ me
There’s somethin’ over the hill that I gotta see
Sometimes it’s hard but you gotta understand
When the lord made me, he made a ramblin’ man.

I love to see the towns a-passin’ by
And to ride these rails ‘neath god’s blue sky
Let me travel this land from the mountains to the sea
‘Cause that’s the life I believe he meant for me
And when I’m gone and at my grave you stand

Just say th’ Lord took home your ramblin’ man.

Just say God took home your ramblin’ man.
