Ramblin' Man

Lyrics: Dicky Betts
Music: Dicky Betts

An Allman Brothers Band song sung by Dicky Betts, and more recently by Anders Osborne, with Phil Lesh and Friends in 2006.

Chorus
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Trying to make a living and doing the best I can
When it's time for leaving, I hope you'll understand
That I was born a ramblin' man

My father was a gambler down in Georgia
He wound up on the wrong end of a gun
And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Rolling down highway forty-one

[chorus]

I'm on my way to New Orleans this morning
Leaving out of Nashville, Tennessee
They're always having a good time down on the Bayou, Lord
Them Delta women think the world of me

[chorus]
