  • My hat don't hang on the same nail too long
    My ears can't stand to hear the same old song
    And I don't leave the highway long enough
    To bog down in the mud

    'Cause I've got ramblin' fever in my blood
    I caught this ramblin' fever long ago
    When I first heard a lonesome whistle blow
    If someone said I ever gave a damn

    They damn sure told you wrong
    I've had ramblin' fever all along
    Ramblin' fever, the kind that can't be measured by degrees
    Ramblin' fever, there ain't no kind of cure for my disease

    There's times I'd like to bed down on a sofa
    And let some pretty lady rub my back
    And spend the early morning drinking coffee
    And talking about when I'll be coming back

    'Cause I don't let know no woman tie me down
    And I'll never get too old to get around
    I'm gonna die along the highway and rot away
    Like some old high-line pole,

    Rest this ramblin' fever in my soul
    Ramblin' fever, the kind that can't be measured by degrees
    Ramblin' fever, there ain't no kind of cure for my disease
