(George Jones)

I've come here to tell you boys
I'm ragged, but I'm right
I'm a tramp and a gambler
I stay out late at night

Got a porterhouse steak
Three times a day for my board
That's more than any loafer
In this big town can afford

I got a big electric fan
To keep me cool while I sleep
Little baby boy playing around at my feet
I'm a rambler and a gambler
And I lead a dirty life
I tell you boys I'm ragged, but I'm alright

When I got married I knew I'd settle down
Build a little love nest
Right here in my hometown
Now I've got a family
One that I'm proud of
I know that we'll be happy
Because they're the ones I love
