Some people say I’m a no count,
others say I’m no good,
But I’m just a natural born traveling man,
Doing what I think I should, oh yeah,
Doing what I think I should.

And I don’t give a damn about a greenback dollar,
Spend it fast as I can,
For a wailing song, and a good guitar,
The only thing that I understand, poor boy,
The only thing that I understand.

When I was a little babe, my mama said, “hey son,
Travel where you will, and grow to be a man,
And sing what must be sung, poor boy,
Sing what must be sung.”

And I don’t give a damn about a greenback dollar,
Spend it fast as I can,
For a wailing song, and a good guitar,
The only thing that I understand, poor boy,
The only thing that I understand.

Now that I’m a grown man, I’ve travelled here and there,
I’ve learned that a bottle of brandy and a song,
The only ones who ever cared, poor boy,
The only ones who ever cared

And I don’t give a damn about a greenback dollar,
Spend it fast as I can,
For a wailing song, and a good guitar,
The only thing that I understand, poor boy,
The only thing that I understand.
