The Credo, of a Ramblin’ Man

No blue is quite as pretty
Than of a Texas sky...
Nor anything as peaceful-
As watching clouds go by.

They’ve always said I’m crazy-
They say I have no sense..
I’m like a young, unbroken colt
Just looking through the fence.

Chorus:
The grass is always greener-
Over on the other side...
The water’s always sweeter-
Out beyond the Great Divide.
The coffee’s always better-
If you drink from a can-
Therein you have the credo-
Of a first class ramblin’ man.

The girls all look far better-
When you’re kissing them goodbye.
And promise them a letter...
Even though you know you lie-

And you grab your bag and bedroll
Say, “Babe, I’ve gotta go”!
There’s nothing any freer-
Than the life out on the road.


------------------
Live large, people!
