Some people say I'm a no count, others say I'm no good
But I'm just a natural born travelin' man
Doin' what I think I should, oh yeah
Doin' what I think I should.

Chorus:
And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
Spend it fast as I can for a wailin song and a good guitar
The only thing that I understand, oh yeah
The only thing that I understand, oh yeah.

When I was a little baby, my mama she said "Son.
Travel where you will and grow to be a man
And sing what must be sung, poor boy
Sing what must be sung."

Chorus:
And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
Spend it fast as I can for a wailin song and a good guitar
The only thing that I understand, poor boy
The only thing that I understand.

Now that I'm a grown man, I've travelled here and there
And I've learned that a bottle of brandy and a song
The only ones who care, oh Lord
The only ones who care.

Chorus:
And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
Spend it fast as I can for a wailin song and a good guitar
The only thing that I understand, oh yeah
The only thing that I understand, oh yeah.

Some people say I'm a no count, others say I'm no good
But I'm just a natural born travelin' man
Doin' what I think I should, oh yeah
Doin' what I think I should.

Chorus:
And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
Spend it fast as I can for a wailin song and a good guitar
The only thing that I understand, oh yeah
The only thing that I understand.

That's all that I understand, poor boy
That's all that I understand...
