Ramblin' Fever

In the style of

Merle Haggard

Lyrics

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 kinda cure
for my disease

there's times that
i could bed down
on a sofa
and let some
pretty lady
rub my back

and spend
the early mornin'
drinkin' coffee
and talkin' about
when i'll be
comin' back

'cause i don't let
no woman
tie me down
and i'll never
get too old
to get around

i want to die
along the highway
and rot away
like some old
high-line pole
and rest this
ramblin' fever
in my soul

ramblin' fever
the kind that
can't be measured
by degrees

ramblin' fever
there ain't
no kinda cure
for my disease
hoo yeah
