lyrics

Mama always called me a rolling stone,
ain't got no place to call my own,
but travelling down the line ain't no guarantee,
no matter where I go I can't escape from me.

Tried to find a girl to while my time,
but she wanted me to quit that rail road line,
well missy you can have my heart for free,
but don't you try and take that train from me.

And she didn't like I that I drank all the time,
but when I get drunk it helps to soothe my mind,
my aching mind.
And it ain't so bad to be a ramblin' man,
that old train's the best friend I ever had,
I ever had, I never had.

Mama always called me a mannish boy,
said son you know a girl she ain't no toy,
you may think you a master of shuck and jive,
but you meet a real lady she'll eat you alive.

Well mama I can give you a guarantee,
just want the mean old world to leave me be,
leave me alone with my whiskey and wine,
just so long I catch my train on time.

Well you know the Good Lord he can let you down,
but when I ride that train I know I'm a glory bound,
I'm glory bound.
And it ain't so bad to be a ramblin' man,
that old train's the best friend I ever had,
I ever had, I never had.
