It's
a long and a dusty road It's
a hot and a heavy load And
the folks that I meet ain't always kind So
are bad some, are good Some
have done the best they could Some
have tried to ease my troubled mind And
I can't help but wonder where I'm bound Where
I'm bound And
I can't help but wonder where I'm bound I
have wandered thru this land Just
a doing the best I can Tryin
to find what I was meant to do And
the people that I see Look
as worried as can be And
it looks like they are a wondering too I
had a little girl one time She
had lips like Sherry wine I
loved her till my head went plumb insane But
I was too blind to see She
was drifting away from me And
my good gal went off on the morning train And
I had a buddy back home But
he started out to roam I
hear he's out by Frisco Bay And
sometimes when I've had a few His
old voice comes a ringing thru And
I'm going out to see him some old day If
you see me passing by And
you sit and you wonder why And
if you wish that you were a rambling too Nail
your shoes to the kitchen floor Lace
them up and bar the door Thank
your stars for the roof that's over you
