  • All my life I've been a traveling man
    All my life I've been a traveling man
    Staying alone and doing the best I can
    I hauled my trunk down to Tennessee
    I hauled my trunk down to Tennessee
    It's hard to tell about a man like me

    I met a gal I couldn't get her off my mind
    I met a gal I couldn't get her off my mind
    She passed me up saying she didn't like my kind
    I was scared to bother 'round her house at night
    I was scared to bother 'round her house at night
    She's got a police dog and he's spoiling for a fight

    His name is Rambler and when he gets the chance
    His name is Rambler and when he gets the chance
    He leaves his mark on everybody's pants
    Yes, I think I'll travel, I think I'll let her be
    I think I'll travel, I think I'll let her be
    Before she sicks that police dog on me
    Before she sicks that doggone dog on me Writer/s: Gary Michael Lucas
