My train is leaving
An I ain't got my fare
My train is leaving
An I ain't even got my fare
An if I start to walking
That train will beat me there

But that's alright
I'm going to do the best I can
But that's alright
I'm going to do the best I can
A man have to take a chance
If he wanna be a travelin' man

I left my babe
Standin' in the back do', cryin'
I left my babe
Standin' in the back do', cryin'
I told her she had a home
Long as I got mine

(piano)

'Ah, kick 'em down, Mr. Kellly'

I stayed to satisfied
Very near all the time
I stayed to satisfy
Very near all the time
I don't know what's the matter
I guess I got a ramblin' mind.
