Well I've been livin' like a trucker
For a month or more
Well, I'm steaming like diesel
That cannot feel it's throat

Well, I'm closing all the windows
Keeping out the rain
But I'm not complaining
In fact, I'd do it all again
I'm a ramblin' man
Cannot stop a travelin' man

I've been singing for my supper
But I never get to eat
Well, I queue up at the diner
But I cannot find a seat

Well, I've been livin' like a gypsy
Feeling like a king
Really feel like singin', you know
That's the mood I'm in
I'm a ramblin' man
Some kind of travelin' man

You'll never catch me working 9 to 5
That's for some people, but me, I wanna ride
All around the world, to the planet's end
I've seen some places, but more, I ain't seen yet, yeah

Lose an hour, gain an hour
Somewhere on a map
Flying through the time zone
Another plane to catch

Why, I've always gotta see
What's on the other side
So I pack my bag, get on my way
And catch my train and ride

I've been livin' like a hawker
In days, both hot and cold
Well, I'm sleeping if I have to
Before the wagons roll

Well, I've been hopin' and I've been prayin
Since I was last here
Tell your mama not to worry
Come on, baby, get on up here
I'm a ramblin' man
Some kind of travelin' man

Well, I've been livin' like a trucker
For a month or more
Well, I'm steaming like diesel
That cannot feel it's throat

Well, I'm closing all the windows
Keeping out the rain
But you won't hear me complaining
In fact, I'd do it all again
I'm a travelin' man
Some kind of ramblin' man

Yes, I'd do it all again
I'd do it all again, baby
Travelin' man, travelin' man
Yeah
