Recorded by Cory Morrow - Ramblin' Man (2010)

I was a ramblin man when I was young
I'll be a ramblin man 'til my days are done
I left my footprints along the road for y'all to see
Trying to find a ramblin man for to carry me

I still got lightning in my veins
I still smell whiskey when it rains
I'm still tempted by the night
I still don't sleep 'til I see the sun rise
I still fight for what I believe
And I believe a woman is a mystery

     I was a ramblin man when I was young
     I'll be a ramblin man 'til my days are done
     I left my footprints along the road for y'all to see
     Trying to find a ramblin man for to carry me

Now Austin is my home
And Houston's where I'm from
I got warrants up in Lubbock
And Acuna, you can just suck it
I still love the college towns
Love it when they say "drink one more round"

     I was a ramblin man when I was young
     I'll be a ramblin man 'til my days are done
     I left my footprints along the road for y'all to see
     Trying to find a ramblin man for to carry me

Now, I still love old Willie's songs
I love the burnin in my lungs
I still love jumpin out of planes
I still go barefoot on the stage
I'm still a one woman man
I still get naked when I can

     I was a ramblin man when I was young
     I'll be a ramblin man 'til my days are done
     I left my footprints along the road for y'all to see
     Trying to find a ramblin man for to carry me
     I hope I find that ramblin man from Galilee
