Lyrics

I`ve been down the Mississippi, Down through New Orleans, Yes, I have. I`ve played in California, There ain`t too much I haven`t seen. No, there ain`t. Well, I`m a ramblin` man, Don`t fool around with a ramblin` man. Left a girl in West Virginia, Up there where that green grass grows, Yes, I did. Another girl in Cincinnati, Waitin` where the Ohio River flows, Poor girl! I`m a ramblin` man, Don`t give your heart to a ramblin` man.

You`d better move away, You`re standin` too close to the flame. Once I mess with your mind, Your little heart won`t beat the same. Lord, I`m a ramblin` man, Don`t mess around with any ol` ramblin` man. Better not! Well, up in Chicago, I was known as `Quiet Boy,` Yes, I was! Down in Alabama, They call me `The man of joy,` Still do! Well, I`m a ramblin` man, Don`t fall in love with a ramblin` man. You`d better move away, You`re standin` too close to the flame. Once I mess with your mind, Your little heart won`t beat the same. Lord, I`m a ramblin` man, Don`t mess around with any ol` ramblin` man. (Fade.)
