Oh, naive little me,
Asking what things you have seen
You're vulnerable in your head
You'll scream and you'll wail till you're dead
Creatures veiled by night
Following things that aren't right
And they're tired and they need to be led
They'll scream and they'll wail till they're dead

But give me to a rambling man;
Let it always be known that that was who I am

Beaten battered and cold
My children will live just to grow old
But if I sit here and weep
I'll be blown over by the slightest of breeze

And the weak need to be led
And the tender are carried to their bed
And it's a pale and cold affair
And I'll be damned if I'll be found there

But give me to a rambling man;
Let it always be known that that was who I am

It's funny how the first chords you come to
Are the minor notes that come to serenade you
It's hard to accept yourself as don't desire
As someone you don't want to be

But give me to a rambling man;
Let it always be known that that was who I am

But give me to a rambling man;
Let it always be known that that was who I am

About the artist behind Rambling Man Tab:

Laura Beatrice Marling (born 1 February 1990), is a folk-pop singer-songwriter from Reading, Berkshire, England.

Marling has toured with a number of well-known indie artists in the UK including Jamie T, who personally invited her on tour with him last year after he attended her second-ever gig.

She performed at the 2007 O2 Wireless Festival and also performed at the first Underage Music Festival in August 2007 at Victoria Park, East London.

Her debut single came out on WayOutWest Records, with a new single coming out soon on Virgin Records. She appeared on The Rakes track "Suspicious Eyes", from the band's second album Ten New Messages and Mystery Jets track "Young Love" released 10 March, 2008.[1] from their second album. She often collaborates with indie band Noah and the Whale, and Charlie Fink, lead singer of Noah and the Whale, produced her debut album Alas, I Cannot Swim.[2]

She recently appeared on Later with Jools Holland where she performed the song "New Romantic". Marling's debut album Alas, I Cannot Swim was released on February 4, 2008.

Despite playing sold-out venues over the past few months, Laura has spoken of how she still finds larger venues scary.[3]

Marling was once refused access to one of her own performances, for being underage. She instead chose to perform on the street.[4]

She is currently the supporting artist at the Adam Green concerts in Europe and in New York.[1][2]
