Merle Haggard – Travelin’ Lyrics

I know we know I won’t be here for long
A travelin’ man will do what he can
Till he hears that travelin’ song

Born in a little town
I left home around
About the age of nine
Been everywhere a time or two
Doin’ what I wanna do
Leavin’ little girls behind

I know we know I won’t be here for long
A travelin’ man will do what he can
Till he hears that travelin’ song

If you see me twice
Take my advice
And don’t play me no tune
When I hear my song
It won’t be long
I’ll be leavin’ soon

I know we know I won’t be here for long
A travelin’ man will do what he can
Till he hears that travelin’ song

As I travel along
I sing my songs
I’m happy as can be
I’m free as a bird
You can take my word
Traveling’s a life for me

I know we know I won’t be here for long
A travelin’ man will do what he can
Till he hears that travelin’ song

I know we know I won’t be here for long
A travelin’ man will do what he can
Till he hears that travelin’ song
