Kentucky in the spring time, summer time in Tennessee
When it gets cold, I’m gonna hit the road down to New Orleans
Maybe hub it down to Texas too, where it’s warm the whole year through
When the winter’s gone, I’m moving on to somewhere new
Of travelling I’ve always enjoyed, I kept rambling to stay employed
And when I quit school, my mama said you fool, you’re just a boy
But now she’s changed her tune, cause I’ve been everywhere except the moon
And I’m sure proud that she don’t doubt that I’ll be there soon

Living life one town at a time, with help from these friends of mine
Cause they know that I’ll travel these back roads ‘til the day that I die
With them I’ll be just fine, on this road I don’t mind dyin’
Well I can’t have it all, but I’m having a ball one town at a time
Give me a van or a passenger train, I’ll cross the ocean in a big airplane
In any style, I’m making miles just the same
Yes I gotta see what’s around the bend, there ain’t nothin’ but time to spend
Soon as I’m gone, it won’t take long till I’m back again

To all the people back home today, working hard for honest pay
I can’t say enough, cause it sure is tough living that way
But this travelling life of mine, I’m leading one town at a time
So down the road here I go, I don’t mind
