I'm just a Roustabout
Shiftin' from town to town
No job can hold me down
I'm just a knock-around guy

There's a lot of space beneath that sky
Till I find my place there's no doubt
I'll be a rovin' Roustabout

Call me the carefree kind
I wander with the breeze
My mind and heart's at ease
Doing what pleases me best

Gotta keep on movin' east or west
Till I find my place there's no doubt
I'll be a rovin' Roustabout

And even if a pretty girl should catch my eye
I'll give her a quick, "Hello" and a fast goodbye
Oh, I'll go the way I want, driftin' just like the sand
Doin' what job I can, changing my plans as I choose

Long as I keep happy I can't lose
Till I find my place there's no doubt
I'll be a rovin' Roustabout, I'll be a rovin' Roustabout
I'll be a rovin' Roustabout, rovin', rovin', rovin' Roustabout
