Roustabout
Elvis Presley Lyrics


I'm just a roustabout
Shifted from town to town
No job can hold me down, I'm just a knock-around guy
There's a lot of space beneath that sky
Till I find my place there's no doubt...
I'll be a rovin' roustabout

Call me the carefree kind
I wander with the breeze
My mind and heart's at ease
Doing what pleases me best
Gotta keep-a movin' east or west
Till I find my place there's no doubt
I'll be a rovin' roustabout

And even if a pretty girl, should catch my eye
I'll give her a quick "hello", and a fast goodbye

I'll go the way I want
Driftin' just like the sand
Doin' what job I can
Changing my plans as I choose
Long as I keep happy I can't lose
Till I find my place there's no doubt
I'll be a rovin' roustabout

I'll be a rovin' roustabout...I'll be a rovin' roustabout

I'll be a rovin' roustabout..rovin', rovin' roustabout....

Love this song

I thank Elvis forever, that he was always there when I had a hard time in life. He will always be the greatest.

The King of music 👑👑👑👑👑👑

Jonathan Michiels

I always liked this song. Recently learned that it went to Number One at the height of Beatlemania which was quite an accomplishment. For a Number One song, it is underrated. It has a breezy quality that reminds one of every good summer day one ever had. Only Elvis could do that. I like the drumming in this song especially; it is outstanding.

Tony Trotta

Elvis Presley performed his own stunts in the movie.

No job can hold me down, I travel from town to town :) carefree life! Til I find my place, I'm rovin'....

RCA should have paired "Little Egypt" with "Big Love, Big Heartache."
