Ramblin’ Fever

Merle Haggard

1 – 2 – Chorus – Bridge – 3 - Chorus


           G                                                      C

1. My hat don't hang on the same nail too long

2. I caught this ramblin' fever long ago

3. Cause I don't let know no woman tie me down


          G                                                      D

1. My ears can't stand to hear the same old song

2. When I first heard a lonesome whistle blow

3. And I'll never get too old to get around


           G                                                 C                                          G

1. And I don't leave the highway long enough To bog down in the mud

2. If someone said I ever gave a damnThey damn sure told you wrong

3. I'm gonna die along the highway and rot away Like some old high-line pole,


             G                            D               G

1. Cause I've got ramblin' fever in my blood

2. I've had ramblin' fever all along

3. Rest this ramblin' fever in my soul



G             C              G                                                 D

Ramblin' fever, the kind that can't be measured by degrees

G             C                 G                      D                     G

Ramblin' fever, there ain't no kind of cure for my disease



            G                                                C

There's times I'd like to bed down on a sofa

        G                                          C

And let some pretty lady rub my back

        C                                                     G

And spend the early morning drinking coffee

                                                          D                    G

And talking about when I'll be coming back
