Ramblin' Boy

  • (Tom Paxton)

    Chorus:
    Here's to you, my ramblin' boy
    May all your ramblin' bring you joy
    Here's to you, my ramblin' boy
    May all your ramblin' bring you joy

    He was a man and a friend always
    He stuck with me in the bad old days
    We never cared that we had no dough
    We rambled round in the rain and snow

    Late one night in a lonely camp
    The weather it was cold and damp
    He got the chills and he got them bad
    I lost the only friend I had

    My ramblin' friend is dead and gone
    He left me here to ramble on
    If when we die we go somewhere
    I'll bet you a dollar he's ramblin' there

    (as sung by Iain Mackintosh)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1988:] My first regular job after leaving the army [c. 1960] was at the Gaslight Cafe in Greenwich Village [...]. One night I wrote three songs between shows, using a little pocket notebook. Songs one and three were non-starters. Song two was Ramblin' Boy. (Notes 'The Very Best of Tom Paxton')
