  • Some people say I'm a no 'count
    Others say I'm no good
    But I'm just a nat'ral born travellin' man
    Doin' what I think should, oh yeah
    Doin' what I think should

    Chorus:
    When I was a little baby my mama said, hey son
    Travel where you will and grow to be a man
    But sing what must be sung, poor boy Sing what must be sung

    And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
    I spend it fast as I can
    For a wailing song and a good guitar
    The only things that I understand, poor boy
    The only things that I understand

    Chorus

    Now that I'm a grown man
    I've travelled here and there
    I found that a jug of brandy and a song
    Are the only ones who care, poor boy
    The only ones who care
