"The Traveling Song" as written by and Robert William Crawford Scott Yancey Avett....
Well I guess if my daddy hadn't brought me up
Down a long dirt road in a pickup truck
I'd feel alright, 'neath the city lights
Couldn't lead no city life it just ain't right

I was born out west in Cheyenne town
While my ma and pa was ramblin' 'round
I'm a rambler too, but I'm country bound
I'll travel till my country home is found
And I will travel
Yeah, I will travel
I will travel 'till my country home is found

Well a country song on the radio
Country star but what do you know
He's a city boy singin' country tunes
I'm a country boy with those city blues
So I will travel
Yeah I will travel
I will travel 'till my country home is found

Well Chestertown (lets go), Albany (lets go), Neptune (lets go), Pittsburgh (let's go), Cleveland town (let's go),...
etc...

I've got the wheels to ride and the wheels to run
Some say I got rabbit in my blood
No pretty girl gonna slow me down
I'll travel 'till my country home is found
So I will travel
I will travel
I will travel till my country home is found
Yeah, I will travel
I will travel
I will travel 'till my country home is found

    General Comment4th line actually says,
    "Couldn't lead no city life it just ain't right."
    And I think the 2nd line in the last stanza might actually be,
    "Some say I got *rabbit* in my blood."
