John D. Loudermilk
I know ev'ry park bench nail by nail
I know ev'ry county by the name of the jail
I know ev'ry train track rail by rail
I'm a travelin' man

I know ev'ry link in the old chain gang
I know how to talk the jail house slang
In fact I know the whole shebang
I'm a travelin' man

I know ev'ry news boy on the street
I know ev'ry cop that walks the beat
I got no home but life is sweet
I'm a travelin' man

I know where a hand-out can be found
I know when the next freight leaves the town
The Lord only knows where I'm bound
I'm a natural travelin' man.
