allman brothers band
a decade of hits (1969-1979)
lord, i was born a ramblin’ man,
tryin’ to make a livin’ and doin’ the best i can.
and when it’s time for leavin’,
i hope you’ll understand,
that i was born a ramblin’ man.
well my father was a gambler down in georgia,
he wound up on the wrong end of a gun.
and i was born in the back seat of a greyhound bus
rollin’ down highway 41.
i’m on my way to new orleans this mornin’,
leaving out of nashville, tennessee,
they’re always having a good time down on the bayou,
lord, them delta women think the world of me.
[repeat and fade]
lord, i was born a ramblin’ man…
