By: Hoyt Axton & Ken Ramsey, 1962[1][2]


Em G Em
Some people say I'm a no count, others say I'm no good
G C G C
But I'm just a natural born travelling man
D7 Em
Doing what I think I should, oh yeah
D7 Em
Doing what I think I should
 
Chorus
G C G C
And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
G C G
Spend it fast as I can
C G C G C
For a wailing song, and a good guitar
D7 Em
Are the only things that I understand, poor boy
D7 Em
The only things that I understand
 
Em G Em
When I was a little babe, my mama said hey son
G C G C
Travel where you will, and grow to be a man
D7 Em
And sing what must be sung, poor boy
D7 Em
Sing what must be sung
 
Chorus
 
Em G Em
Now that I'm a grown man, I've travelled here and there
G C G C
I've learned that a bottle of brandy and a song
D7 Em
Are the only ones who ever cared, poor boy
D7 Em
The only ones who ever cared
 
Chorus
D7 Em
That's all that I understand, poor boy
D7 Em
That's that I understand
