By the look in your eye I can tell you're gonna cry
Is it over me?
If it is save your tears for I'm not worth it
You see?
For I'm the type of boy
Who is always on the roam -
Wherever I lay my hat that's my home.

I'm telling you that's my home.

You had a romance did you break it by chance over me?
If it's so I'd like for you to know
That I'm not worth it, you see?
For I'm the type of boy
Who is always on the roam.
Wherever I lay my hat that's my home
That's my home.

Oh
You keep telling me
You keep telling me I'm your man.
What do I have to do make you understand?

For I'm the type of guy
Who gives a girl the eye
Everybody knows
But I love them and I leave them
Break their hearts and deceive them

Everywhere I go.
Don't you know that I'm the type of man
Who is always on the roam?

Wherever I lay my hat that's my home
Wherever I lay my hat that's my home

Yeah, that's my home -
I don't like it that way.

Doo-doo-be-do-be-do-daaaaah...

You know I can't make it all alone, sometimes that's
The way, that's the way

I'm not saying
I'm not saying I don't love you.
Just got to do what I want to do
That's what I want to do

Feels so cold...

But I'm not saying
You don't mean nothing to me
I'm not saying that no, no
No - I just want my way de-doo-doo-de
You're everything a man could want
But sometimes oh I have to go my own way.
