When it’s time for leavin’, I hope you’ll understand…

My father was a gambler down in Georgia
He wound up on the wrong end of a gun
And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Rollin’ down Highway 41

I’m on my way to New Orleans this morning
Leavin’ out of Nashville, Tennessee
They’re always havin’ a good time down on the Bayou, Lord
Those Delta women think the world of me

Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Trying to make a livin’, I’m doin’ the best I can
But when it’s time for leavin’, well I hope you’ll understand
That I was born a ramblin’ man
