Travelin' Man

  • I was born a travelin' man, that's all I'll ever be
    Moving around from town to town is what makes me so free
    My father was a trucker for the years of 23
    And on the day that I was born his truck was left to me

    I'm a travelin' man
    Travelin' man
    Travelin' man, that's what I am
    Travelin' man, oh that's what I am

    Travelin' man that's what I am, no woman puts a hold on me
    You'll see me once or maybe twice that's all you'll see of me
    No, all you pretty women Lord, I hope you understand
    Don't be a fool, Lord no and put your heart in a travelin' man

    I'm a travelin' man
    Travelin' man
    Travelin' man, that's what I am
    Travelin' man

    Travelin' man that's what I am
    Guess I'll always be
    Travelin' man that's what I am, but at
    At least I'm free, yeah

    I'm a traveler

    Travelin' man
    Oh that's what I am

    Travelin' man that's what I am, Lord I move so fast
    I have had so many women, none of them have last
    I am just a mover, moving fast as sound
    Always free, sometimes lonely, always movin' around

    I'm a Travelin' man
    Travelin' man, that's what I am
    Travelin' man
    Travelin' man
    Oh, that's what I am
