(4 bar introduction)

Em                    G
Some people say I'm a no count,
C                 G
Others say I'm no good,
        Gm
but I'm just a natural born traveling man,
D                    Em
doin' what I think I should, O yeah,
D                    Em
Doin' what I think I should.


Chorus:
G                  C            G             C
And I don't give a damn about a greenback - a dollar
G        C         G   C
Spend it fast as a can.
      G       C      G        C
For a wailin' song a good gui-tar 
    D7                      Em
The only thing that I under-stand, O boy
    D7                      Em
The only thing that I under-stand

(Last Time Only)
    D7                      Em
The only thing that I under-stand, O boy
    D7                      Em
The only thing that I under-stand


2nd Verse
Em                  G
When I was a little baby
Em                 G
My Mama said, "Hey Son,
Gm
Travel where you will and grow to be a man,
    D                 Em
and sing what must be sung, O boy
D                 Em
Sing what must be sung". (Repeat Chorus)

3rd verse
Em             G
Now that I'm a grown man,
     Em                G
I've traveled here and there,
     Gm
I've learned that a bottle of brandy and a song,
    D                  Em
the only ones who ever care, O boy,
    D                  Em
the only ones who ever care.

(Repeat 1st verse and Chorus)
