Travelin' Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

I know we know
I won't be here for long
A travelin' man will do what he can
Till he hears that travelin' song

Born in a little town I left home
Around 'bout the age of nine
Been everywhere a time or two
Doin' what I wanna do leavin' little girls behind

I know we know
I won't be here for long
A travelin' man will do what he can
Till he hears that travelin' song

If you see me twice
Take my advice and don't play me no tune
When I hear my song
It won't be long I'll be leavin' soon

I know we know
I won't be here for long
A travelin' man will do what he can
Till he hears that travelin' song

As I travel along
I sing my songs, I'm happy as can be
I'm free as a bird
Yyou can take my word travelin's a life for me

I know we know
I won't be here for long
A travelin' man will do what he can
Till he hears that travelin' song

I know we know
I won't be here for long
A travelin' man will do what he can
Till he hears that travelin' song
