4 bar intro

I was born in Louisiana, I raised in Algiers
And everywhere I been, the peoples all say
Ain't nothing in ramblin', either runnin' around
Well I believe I'll marry, woooo hooo Lord, and settle down

I first left home, I stopped at Tennessee
The peoples all beggin, "Come and stay with me"
'Cause ain't nothing in ramblin, either runnin' around
Well I believe I'll get me a good man, woooo hooo Lord, and settle down

I was walkin' through the alley with my hand in my coat
The police start to shoot me thought it's something I stole
You know it ain't nothing in rambling, either runnin' around
Well I believe I'll marry, woooo hooo Lord and settle down

The peoples on the highway is walkin' and cryin'
Some is starvin', some is dyin'
You know it ain't nothing in rambling, either runnin' around
Well, I believe I'll get a good man, woooo hooo Lord, and settle down

break

You may go to Hollywood and try to get on the screen
But I'm gwon' stay right here and eat these old charity beans
'Cause it ain't nothing in rambling, either runnin' around
Well, I believe I'll marry, woooo hooo Lord and, settle down
