Ramblin’ Man
by Forrest Richard Betts
© 1973 by No Exit Music Co.
[Chorus]
Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man,
Tryin’ to make a livin’ and doin’ the best I can.
And when it’s time for leavin’,
I hope you’ll understand,
That I was born a ramblin’ man.

a month long performance of ramblin’ and singing. a solitary action repeated daily, always in a different location, always in a state of not knowing. not knowing where i am or where i am going.

after the month, an add is placed in the classifieds (employment section) of two weekly newspapers. ten people are hired to ramble.
