You ask me why I wander
Why I'm always on the roam
Let me tell you sweetheart
I've never had a home.

I've got sand, burnin' sand in my shoes.

I've had girls to call me sweetheart
But I always say goodbye
'Cause I only love three people
Me, myself and I.

I've go sand, burnin' sand in my shoes
I've go sand, burnin' sand in my shoes.

I keep moving just to dodge the blues
I'd love to stay awhile with you
Wearing my shores.

But I've go sand, burnin' sand in my shoes.

I met a girl the other night
Who pleased me to a tee
Till she puckered up
And slipped this note
Won't you please marry me?

Then I got sand, burnin' sand in my shoes
I've go sand, burnin' sand in my shoes.

I keep movin' just to dodge the blues
I'd love to stay awhile with you
A wearing my new shoes.

But I've go sand, burnin' sand in my shoes...
