Ramblin' Man
The Allman Brothers Band Lyrics


Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can
And when it's time for leavin'
I hope you'll understand,
That I was born a ramblin' man

Well my father was a gambler down in Georgia,
He wound up on the wrong end of a gun.
And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Rollin' down highway 41

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can
And when it's time for leavin'
I hope you'll understand,
That I was born a ramblin' man

I'm on my way to New Orleans this mornin'
Leaving out of Nashville, Tennessee
They're always having a good time down on the bayou
Lord, them Delta women think the world of me

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can
And when it's time for leavin'
I hope you'll understand
That I was born a ramblin' man

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man

On this day in 1973 {October 7th} the Allman Brothers' "Ramblin' Man" peaked at #2 {for 1 week} on Billboard's Top 100 chart, for the week it was at #2, the #1 record for that week was "Half-Breed" by Cher...
Between 1969 and 1981 the Jacksonville, FL band had eleven records on the Top 100 chart, one made the Top 10, the above "Ramblin' Man"...
And on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart they had eight records, three made the Top 10, with one reaching #1, "Good Clean Fun" in 1990...
Besides "Good Clean Fun", their other two Top 10 records were "End of The Line" {#2 in 1991} and "No One To Run With" {#7 in 1994}...
Sadly, three original members have passed away, Duane Allman {1946 - 1971}, Gregg Allman {1947 - 1917}, and Butch Trucks {1947 - 2017}...
May all three R.I.P.
And from the 'For What It's Worth' department, the remainder of the Top 10 on October 7th, 1973:
At #3. "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye

I sorta did it

Georiga native, went from there to Alabama
Mississippi (fuck Mississippi)
Tennessee
Arkansas
Oklahoma
Texas
New Mexico
Arizona
Utah
Colorado
Kansas
Illinois
Kentucky
Tennessee again, then home to Georgia

I've never been west past Alabama, so the trip to all these states were so mind opening and breathtaking. I've never really in person seen how beautiful this country was and to see the parks out west, the plains of Oklahoma, desert of texas, the Rockies, and the (mostly) wonderful people in all them made this shitry year just a bit better.
And all was done from end of June to mid July, 2 weeks off from work.
Go and enjoy yourself a trip, sir.
