Got the blues in Batton Rouge walked a mile or two then caught her eye
I got out in Memphis she smiled at me and slowly said goodbye
She asked me if I'd like to tag along a little farther down the line
But travelin' round and bein' free that's only way life's good to me

Here I am in Memphis without a dime or a place to sleep
Sure is hot and sweaty the tar is even bubbling on the street
None of this bothered me that's the only cup o'tea that I can drink
Cause travelin' round and bein' free that's only way life's good to me

I may move on in the morning and never know just how long I'll stay
Sometimes I'll stay a month or two sometimes I don't even stay a day
No one tried to tie me down and it's quite a friendly town I'll stick around
Cause travelin' round and bein' free that's only way life's good to me

I've tried a lot of steady jobs but never seen one make me happy yet
I've lived my life so many ways tried everything and now I know what's best
I wouldn't trade with anyone a billion dollars wouldn't move me none
Cause travelin' round and bein' free that's only way life's good to me
Cause travelin' round and bein' free that's only way life's good to me
Cause travelin' round and bein' free that's only way life's good to me
