From the recording Travelin' Blues

Lyrics

I ain’t got no steady woman – I am a travelin’ man
I ain’t got no steady woman – I am a travelin’ man
Some get mad with me – Some just don’t understand

Been down that highway from Chicago to New Orleans
Been down that highway from Chicago to New Orleans
And there ain’t enough time to tell everything I seen

I was born in Mississippi but the highway been my home
I was born in Mississippi but the highway been my home
Took my leave from Jackson ‘fore I was full grown

I never took to farming, like my Daddy did before
I never took to farming, like my Daddy did before
Made my mind up early, to not be broke and poor

I ain’t got no steady woman – I am a travelin’ man
I ain’t got no steady woman – I am a travelin’ man
Some get mad with me – Some just don’t understand
