Well my daddy was a hard working man
And he rambled from town to town
I'm going to be a ramblin boy
Ain't never going to settle down

Beefsteaks when I'm hungry
Something tall and cool when I'm dry
Give me greenbacks when the times are hard
Sweet heaven when I die

Well they locked me in the jailhouse
My friends all passed me by
Nobody came round to see bout me
And I can't help but wonder why

Beefsteaks when I'm hungry
Something tall and cool when I'm dry
Give me greenbacks when the times are hard
Sweet heaven when I die

Honey hold me when I'm sad and blue
Honey cheer me if I cry
All I really wanted was someone to love me till the day I die

Beefsteaks when I'm hungry
Something tall and cool when I'm dry
Give me greenbacks when the times are hard
Sweet heaven when I die
