Dave Dudley — Original Traveling Man lyrics

I knew the state of ol' Wisconsin back when I was eight
I sang all over Minneapolis lookin' for a break
I rode the rapid rivers with the Chiquoia Indian tribe
I traveled on my thumb though it injured my pride
I'm the world's worst world's first go-while-you-can original traveling man
The world's best forget the rest one night stand original traveling man

I've traveled down to Nashville just a looking for a song
I've traveled down to Mexico just a looking for a home
I guess I've got a self-winding watch for a mind
I start runnin' down if I ain't movin' all the time
I'm the world's worst world's first...
[ guitar ]
I've traveled in a pt boat and fought for Uncle Sam
I've been as close to death as any living man
I've traveled in a limousine and I've traveled in a truck
I've traveled by myself ma'm but thank you very much
I'm the world's worst world's first...
Hey I'm the world's worst world's first...
