(leon wilkeson -- ronnie vanzant)

I was born a travelin' man, that's all I'll ever be
Moving around from town to town is what makes me so free
My father was a trucker for the years of '23
On the day that I was born his blood was left to me
I'm a travelin' man
Travelin' man -- that's what I am
Travelin' man
Travelin' man
That's what I am

Travelin' man -- that's what I am
No woman puts a hold on me
You'll see me once or maybe twice
That's all you'll see of me
All you pretty women lord, I hope you understand
Don't be a fool lord no, and put your heart in a travellin' man
I'm a travelin' man
Travelin' man
Travelin' man -- that's what I am
Travelin' man

(bridge)
Travelin' man -- that's what I am
Guess I'll always be
Travelin' man -- that's what I am
But at least I'm free

Travelin' man
Oh - that's what I am

Travelin' man -- that's what I am, lord I move so fast
I have had so many women, none of them have last
I am just a mover, moving fast as sound
Always free, sometimes lonely. always movin' around
Travelin' man
Travelin' man -- that's what I am
Travelin' man
Oh - that's what I am
