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.

Looking back, my dad's dad wasn't very responsible. He would buy me donuts and sugary cereal and let me stay up late. We would ride around in his old Chevy truck and he would roll the windows down to smoke. Hardly even talking, just riding around listening to his CDs, my favorite being this one. My parents stopped letting me see him when they found out. He died of lung cancer a few years ago and I just wish I could ride around 1 more time

I didn't have that with either of my grandfathers, one died when I was very small, but the other one, mom's dad, played bass in a country band right up to the end. Way back in the day, my dad sang for Grandpa's band. That's how my parents met.
